Govind Niwas stands on an acre of land
located on Sardar Patel Road, within walking distance of the Erstwhile
"Residency" – the residence of the British Agent to the Court of Jaipur
(Now the Rajmahal Palace hotel). It is located in the "C-Scheme"
neighborhood of Jaipur and is part of the estate of the erstwhile ruling
family of Chomu. C-Scheme is a largely residential neighborhood with
wide roads and bungalows. Govind Niwas provides the best of both worlds
- while it is centrally located and close to the walled city and other
attractions, it is a peaceful and quiet place for you to relax.
Govind Niwas is the residence of Admiral
Madhvendra Singh, Former Chief of the Naval Staff of the Indian Navy,
and his wife, Kumu. The Admiral hails from the Principality of Chomu
which formed part of the Jaipur State prior to the formation of the
Indian Republic in 1950. The Chomu family is descended from the Royal
family of Jaipur. It branched out in 1528 AD when Gopalji, the fourth
son of Maharaj Prithiraj, Ruler of Amber, as Jaipur was then known, was
granted a separate Principality to rule. The family has, since then, had
a very illustrious military tradition. In 1548 Gopalji was appointed to
command the vanguard of the army and the first seat on the right-hand
side of the Maharaja was granted to him in Darbar. This military
tradition has continued through the centuries and the Admiral's father,
Major General K. Bhagwati Singh, was the first Indian Commissioned
officer (IC No:1) to graduate from the newly formed Indian Military
Academy in 1934. The Admiral joined the National Defence Academy as a
Cadet in June 1961 and was awarded the coveted Telescope and the Sword
of Honour. He retired as the Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee and the
Chief of Naval Staff on 31 Jul 2008 and has returned to his ancestral
home in Jaipur and resides at Govind Niwas."
