Why go to Magnetic Fields, Alsisar Mahar

Set in the beautiful village of Rajasthan, Alsisar Mahal is a palace that has recently been renovated into a luxury hotel. Earlier, Alsisar Mahal was the residence of the Thakur of Alsisar. This is an ideal place to explore the historical capital of Jhunjhunu and also the painted region of Shekhawati. This majestic palace spread over a 10 acre plot, is situated in village Alsisar which is 23 km from district head quarters ‘Jhunjhunu’ in Rajasthan. The mahal is very regal with all its intricate walls, splendour of beautiful interiors, antique furniture and carved poster beds. The expansive courtyards with quaint lawns, take you back in time and lend an unreal feel to the whole place.
