  • Beautiful Architecture of the past. Best view in the evening. To understand the huge space and importance of each segment a proper guide is must. Lots of stories and history to be told during the tour but nothing much on site to relate to. Read a bit of history before visit. Nice place
  • A beautiful montage to the amazing history of the state and the Royal family. This place easily takes up atleast two hours even for the tourist in a hurry. The only gripe is the government doing next to nothing to preserve it, except for putting up a fence outside and selling tickets. The place has been vandalised beyond compare.

The ruins of the once famous palace have the temple of Lord Shiva, Zanana mahal, Diwan -e -aam, along with a stable for horses. According to the legends, the founder of the city of Udaipur, Maharana Udai Singh was born here, and his life was saved by his wet nurse Panna Dai, who hid him inside a fruit basket. This place was once the home of the famous bhakti poetess Meerabai. It is also believed, that Rani Padmini organized her self- immolation or jauhar inside this fort. The fort is build with stones which are plastered, and have some exquisitely design canopied balconies. It is said that this palace is haunted by spirits. Across from the palace a museum has been constructed.
