The last titular Maharaja of Jaipur, Sawai Bhawani Singh, died at a private hospital in Gurgaon on Saturday night after prolonged illness.
He was 80.
The Jaipur royal died due to multiple-organ failure and his body was brought here on Sunday morning, family sources said.
Brig. Singh, the head of the Kachwaha clan of Rajputs, was admitted to hospital on March 29.
The Rajasthan government announced a two-day State mourning. Brig. Singh's funeral will take place with full State honours at ‘Gaitore Ki Chatriya' here on Monday, the sources said.
People offered flowers and wreaths as they filed past the body of Brig. Singh draped in a military uniform at the Chandra Mahal here. Rajasthan Governor Shivraj Patil, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Pradesh Congress Committee president C.P. Joshi were among those who paid floral tributes. Rajasthan Assembly Speaker D.S. Shekhawat and State Ministers also paid tributes to Brig. Singh.
Born to Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II and his first wife Marudhar Kanwar of Jodhpur, Sawai Bhawani Singh married Princess Padmini Devi in 1966.
The royal couple have a daughter Princess Diya Kumari.
Brig. Singh had adopted Padmanabh — the son of Diya and son-in-law Narendra Singh — who will now ascend the throne, the sources said.
Brig. Singh also served in the Indian Army and received numerous honours, including a promotion to the Presidential Bodyguard. He was awarded India's second-highest gallantry award, the Mahavir Chakra, for destroying many Pakistani posts during the 1971 war.
