India was often referred to be a golden bird since conquerors discovered abundant raw materials and pricey stones here. The kings and queens ruled their kingdoms from showy locations while living in enormous mansions. Only a few palaces have survived India’s independence from Britain and other countries after so many years. Their actual owners decided to transform them into opulent resorts that not only exude wealth and extravagance but also carry steep nightly rates.
