Bikaner/ Royal blood lines- Hotel Bhairan Vilas

img_1501Harsh, bit of a dude, almost certain party boy, runs a great hotel in Bikaner. His great grandfather was the Mahraja of Bikaner. His grandfather, whilst not the oldest son and therefore couldn’t become the king, became a landlord of the village, the Thakur. His responsibility was to collect tax from the village to pay to the king, as well as looking after the village army. Both the land and the role were passed through the generations. After India’s independence, the role ceased to exist, so on the death of his father, Harsh decided to turn the Villas into a hotel. For 27 quid a night you can soak up the majestic surroundings and catch a rum with Hash, listening to some deep Indian house beats, Minimow, Bollyhouse
