Rohet is the fortified desert home of the descendants of the 16th century Rathore of the Champawat clan. Rohet was gifted to Thakur Dalpat Singh I in 1622 A.D. by the Maharaja Of Jodhpur, as a mark of appreciation for his bravery in battle. It has been home to generations of family that have continued to develop the property.
Today the heritage home has been transformed to a hotel and provides a visitor with a unique experience of warm courteous Rajput hospitality. Brilliantly plumed peacocks strut about, perching themselves under finely carved stone archways and the landscaped gardens are carefully maintained with neem tree groves and bougainvilleas. It is like an oasis in the arid land of Marwar.
At Rohet all the festivals are celebrated with great splendour. Special among these is the Festival of Gangaur. The celestial marriage of Shiva and Parvati.Twenty days after the festival of Holi.for 5 nights, village folk come from afar, to gather for Darshan, and participate in Ghoomar, a traditional form of dance. The festival concludes with the Gangaur Mela where the two deities are taken out in ceremonial procession, and the divine marriage ceremony is performed.
Today Rohet is particulary proud of its prize winning Marwari horses with their glossy coats and pointy ears. The horses are bred at Rohet and carefully looked after and nurtured.Visiting the stables here would be of interest to any horse enthusiast.Rohet is also a place for excellent jeep safaris to the local Bishnoi villages.Horse safaris can also be organised here by arrangement.
