Founded by the merchant clan of the Poddars, Ramgarh is so strikingly beautiful that an English traveler from the 19th century described it as reality to a vision drawn from eastern romance. Ramgarh was one of the richest towns of India till the 19th century and has most beautiful structures like opulent Havelies, Cenotaph (Chatri), Temples etc.
Ramgarh Fresco, formerly known as the Khemka Haveli, was bought and converted into a boutique hotel in 2009 by the Khandelwal family of Delhi.
The hotel has 14 rooms, ranging from a cosy single room for individual privacy to large suites. The rooms are spread interestingly across the property.
The décor is simple and tasteful - everything from the elegantly hand crafted wooden furniture to lampshades to the colourful bedspreads to carefully selected art objects, enhances the vibrant paintings that cover the haveli.
