Samode, Rajasthan, India.
Hospitality quarters of a large, three-storied haveli in Samode, a village in the Aravalli hills. The haveli, now a heritage hotel, belongs to the former rulers of Samode. These rooms are kept darkened against sun damage and so the colours are a little distorted. These rooms form a balcony over the former durbar room, now a winter dining room.
Mirror work, fine plaster of Paris sculpting, enamel work, floral cartouches on the walls with paintings of Krishna, Siva, and their wives; of the hunt and of birds; marble columns and floors; a representation of Krishna in glass set in marble. Two of the balconies are painted and stenciled primarily in powder blue and white.
