A great historical place. The staffs of the museum told the whole story of the chetak as well as Maharanapratap. And really it brings me to that time. Salute to chetak. From there we also go to the samadhi of chetak which is unknown for many people. From here the view of the city is excellent.

Brilliant place. The colour of the mud is totally different in this place. It is a mix of red n mustard. Has a historical significance, so ideal for kids.

Haldi Ghati, 2 hous distance from Udaipur, played a vital role in the war Rana fought. The Horse Chetak has found itself in the history for the bravery it showed to reach Rana safely, inspite of one leg being cut, to his place before breathing its last. The light and sound show very nicely informs the entire history of Uday... More
