Kotah prince Ijyaraj Singh was anointed as the 19th Maharao of Kotah in a private yet spectacular ceremony.
This Rajtilak at Kotah brought in royal revelry, fanfare and pageantry bringing live the pictures of bygone era.
The ceremony was performed following the demise of the late HH Maharao Saheb Brijraj Singhji after which his son and heir, Ijyaraj Singh was anointed as the 19th Maharao of Kotah in a private ceremony at the Rajmahal Chowk within the 13th Century Kotah-Garh complex on 10 February.
The event reflected a regal grandeur with 250 jagirdars participation in it representing over 50 thikanas of the erstwhile kingdom of Kotah.
They were all dressed in white Jodhpuris and bandhgala suits donning white or dull coloured paags or headgear before taking their assigned seats as per palace protocol.
