ABOUT DEVRA

The word ‘Devra’ translates to 'where God resides'. It is epitomised by tranquility, set within the serenity of an 800-year-old temple that still stands tall before Devra. In the local language "Devra" means a tribal temple.

The house is built on an estate of five acres, set amidst lush green fields, perched atop a small hillock. Devra is the perfect retreat for travellers looking to immerse themselves into an experience of heritage and nature. A mere ten minutes drive from the city center, it is neither too far from tourist attractions, nor is too close to the city’s bustle.

Read More Devra is a country home stay with a warm, tranquil and rustic, yet sophisticated feel. The house has been built with passion, care and love. Incorporating a local stone facade with an open-to-sky courtyard, the terrace provides a panoramic view of the majestic skyline with the breathtaking view of the city palace along with an infinity pool overlooking the magnificent Sajjan Garh fort. It is an ideal getaway for couples, families, small groups and all-girls stays, all of who would adore the aura and ambiance of being at home while away from home.

“At Devra, we are very conscious of our nature and it’s resources. Conservationists we are proud to share with you and call our property ninety percent self sustained, with our own dairy, solar electricity, rain harvested water, home grown grains and fresh greens.”
