For a glimpse at royal digs, head to any of the many palaces and temples strewn throughout Asia. China's Forbidden City and Potala Palace are popular destinations that were home to the Chinese royal dynasty and the Dalai Lama, respectively. Umaid Bhawan Palace in Rajasthan, India is one of the world's largest private residences and serves as the home of the Jodhpur royal family. A portion of the residence is managed by Taj Hotels and welcomes overnight guests. While not a palace, the Taj Majal is an impressive sight to behold. A mausoleum for Emperor Shah Jahan's third wife, it is one of the most stunning displays of wealth and opulence in the world.
