The minute you lay eyes on the building, you can picture generations of Rajputs holding darbar, riding off to war or simply enjoying a mehfil on a warm summer evening. That’s the old-worldly charm of the property.
The resort has 26 luxurious rooms and suites, an open lawn with a holding capacity of 400 persons, 2 spacious air-conditioned halls ideal for 150-200 guests and various terraces.

Start your day by breathing in and out the pleasant air of Panchkula while stretching your sore muscles during the yoga sessions offered by the resort. You can then relish the delectable Ramgari cuisine served in the Diwan Khana, which houses the gaddi of the former rulers of Ramgarh. The multi-cuisine restaurant with the adjoining Shikaar Bar is styled with a deer theme. The frescoes display delicate paintings of dancing deer and the walls are adorned with deer heads preserved from century-old hunts. Later, you can head out for exciting trips to a plethora of places arranged by the resort. Some of the places worth visiting include the famous Cactus Garden, Morni Hills, Rock Garden, Sukhna Lake and many more.
The Hathi Thaan, or the place where elephants used to be tethered, now houses the beautiful pool with marble fountains of two elephants.
In the heart of the Quila is perhaps the oldest structure in the property—the temple of Thakurdwara dedicated to Krishna. The rest of the mansion might have been restored, but the temple has been left largely untouched. There are paintings of Krishna’s life and intricate mirror-work adorning the ancient walls. Indulge in a truly spiritual experience by attending the Aarti practised every day at the resort.
It’s these little nuggets of history hidden within the luxurious walls of Ramgarh Heritage that make it special.
