Deriving the name from its location, Number 1 Mansingh road, the Taj Mansingh Hotel was the second hotel to be established by its owners, the Indian Hotel Company Limited (IHCL), after the inauguration of the Taj Mahal, Bombay on 16th December 1903. It is located in the exclusive residential area of Lutyens’ Delhi, close to the seat of government. Reflecting the heritage of Mughal Delhi, this hotel offers a graceful architecture.
