6 acres of lush gardens, perched high on top of a hill, only add to the beauty of these colonial style heritage cottages built between 1834 and 1865 that now serve as the Taj Savoy. Colourful flower beds merge to form a vibrant quilt around the cottages – reminiscent of the old English charm. The heritage structure of these cottages has remained intact except for minor modifications to make them fitting of the Taj legacy.
