I am Marvel Umed. I am as old as the kingship was and young as dew drops are. Standing at times square, I had witnessed ancient armaments, royal rituals, cultivating culture, tremendous tastes, lavishly living with all touches, sounds, silence and scents. In fact, time stays in me as Royals of Rajputana retreats in my premises.
I am a Heritage monument built by Thakur Shaitan Singh of Nimbhera estate of Jodhpur province when kingship was the form state in the India under the British rule. The roots of my ancientness are as old as the Jodhpur State is. Jodhpur was founded by my 18th forefather, Rao Jodha. I am having an inherited value to build, preserve and hand over that to the generation next.
