The Palace is ideal for grand celebrations and seems custom-ordered for Weddings. Traditionally an Indian wedding has two important components - a horse for the groom and a doli in which the bride is carried away. As you walk into Samode Palace you are greeted by the idea of an imminent wedding - the doorway has a wooden horse to one side and a doli on the other! A marriage at Samode is an experience that will last a lifetime. The stately regalia include an elephant procession, traditional tikka, garlanding and a shower of flower petals. The mandap or sacred fire is arranged in the beautiful courtyard, and a royal banquet set-up in the opulent Darbar hall with Sheesh Mahal (or Palace of Mirrors).
Fireworks light up the sky, lamp lights twinkle brighter than the stars. The food is a delicacy, the service is flawless and the celebration is unforgettable - tailor-made to your fantasy. This is romance re-defined. And newly-weds stay on for a spectacular honeymoon in a setting that draws them in an intimately romantic sweep through the charming entrances, into colourful courtyards and verandahs filled with a warm familiarity, secluded gardens and plush princely apartments. Guests come back to celebrate special anniversaries and occasions. Samode seems to have a lien on celebrations.
