Housed in the Fateh Prakash Palace – the world’s single largest private collection of crystal under a single roof – is the celebrated Crystal Gallery which is spread across the upper-gallery of the glittering Durbar Hall.

On this Tour:
• Visit the Crystal Gallery, which has been hailed as probably the single largest private collection of crystal anywhere in the world and the visitors here are privy to one of the most exclusive and exquisite crystal collections.
• It was in 1877 that Maharana Sajjan Singh (period of reign: 1874-1884) ordered the crystal collection from the Birmingham-based F&C Osler company, and the collection has been customised for the House of Mewar; the Crest of Mewar being delicately etched on the crystal, adding yet another amazing facet.
• See a bewildering number of objects d'art, dinner sets, perfume bottles, decanters, glasses, washing bowls and even furniture, made out of crystal, which don’t fail to fascinate one and all even today.
• View the only crystal bed in the world!

TOUR NOTES: Please note, the food on the street is delicious but does not meet national or international hygiene standards. Although we only go to very popular places, with good local reputations, these stalls do not cook using bottled water or wash their utensils with it. So eating street food is always risky. If you prefer not to risk it, but still want to see what it’s all about, then at the end of the walk, we can take you to Haldirams where you can try chaats and other popular dishes in safe and hygienic conditions.
