A Tata Group hospitality arm, Indian Hotels Company Ltd (IHCL), has added Fateh Prakash Palace in Udaipur to its collection of authentic palaces, which has now been renamed as Taj Fateh Prakash Palace.
The Fateh Prakash Palace was built during the reign of Maharana Fateh Singh Mewar in the 19th century. The palace was an exclusive venue for the royal functions. The palace has 65 heritage rooms and suites, IHCL said in a statement.
"As custodians of Indian hospitality, it is our privilege and honour to be entrusted with the responsibility of managing Taj Fateh Prakash Udaipur," IHCL Managing Director and CEO Mr Puneet Chhatwal said.

The Lake Palace Hotels & Motels Chairman and MD Mr Arvind Singh Mewar said, "My family has shared a close and fruitful association with IHCL since 1971- when we commenced our valued relationship with Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur."
"In 2020, we strengthen our bond through Taj Fateh Prakash Udaipur," added Mr Mewar. He further added that this is a significant palace having been a witness to many royal functions over time.
With the addition of this palace into its portfolio, IHCL has become the largest hospitality operator in Udaipur with four hotels, IHCL said.
