Diggi Palace now known as The Diggi Palace Hotel is an Indian royal palace located in Jaipur, Rajasthan. It was converted into a heritage hotel, but a part is still occupied by the royal family, which also runs the hotel. The annual Jaipur Literature Festival is held here since 2006.
The former haveli belongs to the Thakurs (Khangarot Rajputs) of Diggi, a thikana or estate 40 km south-west from Jaipur, earlier part of the Jaipur state. Each of the thakurs since its construction in 1980s, added to the present structure, which in 1991 was partly converted to a heritage hotel by the present owners Thakur Ram Pratap Singh Diggi and his wife, Jyotika Kumari Diggi.
