From the start, Mihir Garh has focused on responsible tourism, with local craftsmen involved in its construction. Today, this approach continues through the hotel’s deep connections with local communities and the region’s heritage.
A centerpiece in these is Mihir Garh’s Village Welfare Fund, which invites guests to donate to a range of community projects. The hotel has helped build infrastructure for schools, installed cisterns for clean water storage in local villages, and operates educational medical camps that cover issues from eyes, through epilepsy, to young women’s health. It is also heavily involved in the protection of an indigenous regional horse, the Marwari. The breed now thrives at Mihir Garh, with the hotel playing an active role in the Marwari Horse Society, of which the UK’s Duchess of Cornwall is a patron.
