  about Samode

Samode is situated in the royal Indian state of Rajasthan, on way to Shekhawati, Samode is a small village famous for its haveli and fort. Samode is connected to Jaipur through a good network of roads.

Best Time To Visit :
Like most other places in north India, Samode too has an extreme climate. The summers can be very hot with the mercury shooting up to 45°C, whereas winters are chilly and the temperature can dip down to 5°C. The best time to go to Samode is the period between October and March.

History :
Unlike the other havelis of Rajasthan, the Samode Palace does not belong to any royal family but a family of noblemen, the Rawals of Samode. It is about four hundred years old, and has some new additions and modifications. This family traces its descent to Prithvi Singh of Amber, the seventeenth prince of the house of Kachwaha Rajputs, who in turn trace their descent to Lord Rama. Gopal Singh, one of the 12 sons of Prithvi Singh, was given Samode, which owed loyalty to the rulers of Amber and Jaipur.

Camel Ride :
During the day, a camel ride through the Samode village and the surrounding countryside is a good idea. Riding this gentle animal with its rocking gait is the best way to relax on a sunny morning.

Folk Dances And Songs :
A real visit to Samode cannot be considered complete without a musical evening of folk dances and songs. Rajasthani bards and musicians with their colorful dresses and unusual musical instruments provide one of the best evenings one can have in India. The instruments include one-stringed fiddles, country violins, bagpipes made out of goatskin, castanets, Jew's harps, and even a one stringed instrument made out of a dried gourd. The villagers sing with plaintive abandon under the faint light of the crystal stars. A musical evening can be arranged at a short notice at the Samode Palace.

Tourist Interest :
There are several places of tourist interest in Samode village. The Samode Palace, now a heritage hotel, is built in the characteristic pattern of an open courtyard with rooms leading off the arched corridor that runs along all the four sides of the building. The Sultan Mahal is on the first floor-an exquisite room with a marble pillared verandah. Samode offers some excellent spots for day long excursions. Shekhawati is about two and half hours away from Samode. This small village is quite famous for its havelis with murals and wall paintings. Many experts also call this place the living art gallery of the world.

The Indian village of Samode is easily accessible through air, road and rail from the other major Indian cities and states.
