About Pashan GarhTaj Safaris'jungle safari lodge comprises a cluster of stone cottages huddled atop a small hill, with
magnificent views over the forest and a large nearby waterhole,which has been host to numerous tiger and resident antelope sightings.
This lodge draws inspiration from the
dry-packed stone houses of the Pannaregion. These houses differ from other Madhya Pradesh styles, with dramatic roofs constructed from massive slabs of irregularly shaped slate.
The guest areascelebrate Haveli design, with a spacious central courtyard. The interiors are a contemporary mix of chocolate linens, block-printed black silks, celadoncottons
and cotton lace chandeliers. A strong motif throughout the lodge is the motif of the crocodile, which inhabits the nearby Ken River. Although thestructures are rough, chunky and
stony, the interiors are sleek and sexy.
The lodge features 12 stone cottages, with a central guest area showcasingfabulous leather furniture made in Delhi, with massive
black and white photo canvasses of the dramatic Panna landscapes. There are subtle references to theerotic stonework at the nearby temples of Khajuraho.
