We visited it post Nathdwara temple. Loads of picture clicking opportunity. It’s a lovely museum sharing the history with animated vedio clip story of Mahrana pratap. Has lovely statues and paintings along with light and sound show to give a glimpse of Maharajas life. Lot of people buy gulab jal, it’s authentic and reasonable.

If one is visiting Eklingji temple and Nathdwara temple, it can be included.. We covered it while going to Kumbhal garh fort in a taxi.. It only resulted in additional travelling of 25 KM.. They start with showing a small animated movie, explaining the story of Maharana Pratap Singh. Then there were miniature models/statutes with audio guide narrating the scene.... More

The museum is done very nicely. The story of Maharaja is told through a movie and through Jhankis. Nice. Food is okay at the end.

The museum is actually located a short distance away from Haldi Ghati (you drive through Haldi ghati to reach here) where the actual battle took place. It is a small 1 room containing some artifacts belonging to Maha Rana Pratap and several paintings or rather reprints from what you see in City palace after which is a short movie (which... More

contrary to all expectations there is nothing to see of interest at the rat tall. some monuments are erected there to honour the dead. but in the absence of any government guides there, it becomes a vain effort to roam around there. moreover it has been changed into the garden. so nothing original is left there.

I visited this place with some good Indian friends who were very well able to explain me the historical importance of the battle at Haldigathi. First you enter an historical gate, which is not that bad to see. After the gate and admissions there is a pretty nice square with some figures depicted the battle. Also, all nicely looking. Then,...

This review is mainly for folks visiting India : If you only have a day or two in which you are trying to combine kumbalgarh and haldighati, skip haldighati. If you have ample time and have seen everything else, then "maybe" you can plan this. If at all you do include this, then do it before you go to kumbalgarh,... More

History lovers and non-lovers both have reasons to visit this place. If you are inclined towards historic deeds, this place is full of solid history. And for those who aren't fans of such stories, visit this place to marvel at a pass that has turmeric yellow mud when everything around is regular brown. Maharana Pratap fought a battle against Raja... More
