Dhenkanal Palace – Royal Destination of Odisha


The royals of Dhenkanal Palace the first to open their palace gates to tourists over a decade ago.

Romancing an old world charm of royalty in nature is what you get at Dhenkanal Palace, only 2 hours drive from Bhubaneswar.

It is a royal palace built way up on Megha hill that overlooks vast stretches of forests, dotted occasionally by small villages. So thick is the forest that to a casual eye it is impossible to locate the palace from the highway. The Dhenkanal palace now has 12 well-furnished air-conditioned rooms for tourists.

The view from the palace is incredible. And it is teeming with wild life – birds, elephants, deer, civets, monkeys and wild boars are in plenty, while an occasional leopard may make a casual appearance.

Kumar Saheb’s son Jitendra Singh Deo and daughter in law Navneeta turned their age old home into a holiday destination to share their experience of mysticism of royalty set in the heart of nature.

The food that comes from the kitchen is local and comes from the organic farm along the house. It has also a blend of Rajasthan’s royalty courtesy Navneeta’s connect to Chittorgarh and Maharana Pratap.
