Welcome to Rajasthan Tourism
Located just outside Udaipur, this 18th century palace was built by Maharana Sajjan Singh of the Mewar Dynasty and is also named after him. Situated on top of Bansdara Mountain of the Aravalli range at a height of 3100 feet, the Maharana had initially commissioned it as a five-storey astronomical centre. However, his premature death brought the plans to a halt. It was then turned into a monsoon palace and hunting lodge. The elevation of its site means the majestic palace towers over the countryside while offering panoramic vistas to visitors. The palace belonged to the Mewar royal family for a long time and has only recently been handed over to the Forest Department of the Government of Rajasthan. It is now open to the public, who throng to the palace to soak in the beauty of the white marble structure with its high turrets, massive central court and exquisitely carved pillars. Beautifully illuminated at night, the Rajasthani architecture of this magnificent palace inspires awe.
