Mr. N C Lalji has been residing in this homestay with his wife Prabha Lalji since 1966. Mr. Lalji is a well-trained Sarod (classical musical instrument) musician who appreciates Indian culture and traditions and is well aware of the history of Jaipur. Prabha on the other hand has years of experience in social work for local women in the area surrounding Moti Doongri. After hosting many international exchange students in their home (especially single female travellers) the couple decided to start a homestay to enhance opportunities of interacting and socializing with people from different walks of life.
Their genuine warmth, hospitality and practical guidance is all one could ask for while staying in the beautiful pink city. The homestay is located in one of the prime locations of the city. The home has a feel of old Indian houses with spacious rooms, interconnecting doors, living area close to the entrance, huge kitchen adjoining dining area and a well maintained lush garden in front of the house. The guest room is comfortable and equipped with facilities like computer and internet in the room. The roof terrace of the house gives a good view of the area around, especially Moti Doongri facing the front of the house. Moti Doongri is famous for its glamorous palace, the Ganesh and Lakshmi Narayan temples. The palace at the uphill was a small fortress earlier and it was renovated by Sawai Man Singh II. It was the residence of the Rajmatha, Gayathri Devi. Moti Doongri palace is built in the style of a Scottish castle and its peculiar architecture is worth mentioning. Since it is a private property of the royal family, tourists are not allowed to go inside the palace. The entry is allowed only once in a year, when many devotees from all over the city crowd its Shiv temple during Mahashivratri. A peaceful homely stay with the interesting company of hosts is sure to make its guests wanting to come back for more.
