Varanasi – Brijrama Palace

One of Varanasi’s oldest landmarks, the sandstone Brijrama Palace occupies prime position besides the holy Ganges River. Its high walls and lofty pillars bear carvings dating back to the early 19th century, whilst its serene interiors are decorated with elegant period furniture and original antiques.

The 32 well-appointed guestrooms at Brijrama Palace are filled with the finest silks, plush rugs and hand-painted frescoes. Superior rooms also feature a classic slipper bath with a view over the Ganges River.
