Dileep & Dalpat Singh Rathore from Talabgaon Castle share: Talabgaon Castle is a living castle. It has been with our family for over 200 years. We have always wanted to share the experience of a by gone era with the guests of Talabgaon. We Rajputs have a proud history as fearless warriors who lived by a strict code of honor. We also have a reputation for our hospitality. At Talabgoan Castle we want the guests to experience the lifestyle of a Rajput noble. Our family resides at the castle so each guest is treated more like a visiting family member or relative rather than just a guest. Atithi Devo Bhavah (The guest is god) is a Rajput and a hindu tradition that has been followed in India for centuries and our aim is for the guests of “Talabgon to experience that tradition in the luxurious comfort of Castle Talabgaon.” Also as the castle is situated in middle of rustic Rural Rajasthan and we want guests to experience and see the real rural Rajasthani lifestyle which they cannot in other city Hotels. Our vision is “Luxury in the Palm of Nature”
