Majestically facing the Ganga at the Darbhanga Ghat, in 1812, the divine structure of the Brijrama Palace in Varanasi was built by Shridhara Narayana Munshi. A 200-year-old home on the banks of the River Ganga, Brijrama Palace in Varanasi pampers you with a royal stay, a magical ambience, and exclusive dining options.Brij Rama Palace, Varanasi, one of the oldest landmarks of the city, dates back to the year 1812. It was built by Shridhara Narayana Munshi, the then minister for the estate of Nagpur, and thereafter acquired by Rameshwar Singh Bahadur (the Brahmin King of Darbhanga-Bihar) along with the ghat in 1915. At Brijrama, travelers are served like royalty as all the services were tailored to brilliance. The royal experience began at the Bhaisasur Ghat, from where you were escorted to the hotel in a bajra (a traditional Indian wooden boat). Gold and silver motifs and hand-painted art decorate the ceilings. Then there are old fashioned beds with bedposts and traditional lamps. The property also offers a great dining experience. It’s good to dine at the multi-cuisine vegetarian restaurant, Darbhanga. The chefs took the effort to understand the food preferences and prepared a range of dishes—from a traditional Banarasi thali to Indian, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, and Thai cuisines. For high tea, you dropped by the Kamalya Café that offers sweeping views of the Ganga. A guide accompanied you on a short journey to the temples of Varanasi, hidden lanes, age-old ruins, and ghats. The music and rhythm of the performance reverberated throughout the property and took you back to the good old days of the maharajas.
