The Pataudi Palace, also called Ibrahim Kothi, is a former palace of the Nawabs of Pataudi, in Haryana, India.

At the request of Iftikhar Ali Khan (1910–52), the 8th Nawab of Pataudi, the building was designed in the style of the colonial mansions of Imperial Delhi by Robert Tor Russell (1888–1972) assisted by the Austrian architect Karl Molt von Heinz.[1][2] Many Hindi movies have also been shot here.[2]

Formerly a Neemrana Hotel,[3] it was repossessed by actor Saif Ali Khan, son of the last Nawab, in 2014 and as of July 2015 remained closed for refurbishment.[4]
