Perched on the river bank of the Darbanga Ghaat is the Brijrama Palace, one of the oldest landmarks of the city. Brijrama Palace prides itself on giving travellers a taste of Indian royal life. It refers to visitors as ‘Royal Guests’: the palace once belonged to the Brahmin King of Darbhanga. Some relics from this time remain, such as one of the world’s oldest elevators, installed in 1918. The Brijrama experience starts at Bhisasur ghaat where guests are greeted and escorted to the Bajra (a traditional indian wooden boat) which takes them to the hotel, soaking in the beauty of Varanasi. With three restaurants, a rooftop terrace, and more all on site, this unique hotel caters for those in need of a taste of Indian history with all the hallmarks of modern-day luxury.
