A narrow mountain pass in the Aravali ranges, about 40kms from Udaipur, has itched itself firmly in Indian history. Haldighati, literary meaning “The Yellow Valley’ was witness to a ferocious battle between Maharana Pratap, the King of Mewar and the all conquering Mughal forces of Emperor Akbar in the year 1576 that changed the course of history of Mewar.

Kids enjoyed the tour very much. A private museum that showcases life and achievement of Maharana pratap had my little kids intrigued and excited. A short 10 minute movie, simple guided tour inside museum and the nostalgia about being on the spot where The historic battle of haldighati was fought made the trip worth it! Drink a glass of freshly... More

The last battle of Haldighati between Maharana Pratap and Akbar took place.(Akbar him self did not participate). The war was ultimately a draw because as per tradition, the loser king could not be killed or captured. The life of Maharana Pratap was saved by his follower having same facial look like Maharana Pratap who was killed. The Maharana Pratap left... More

This place is almost 40-45 km from Udaipur and 20 km from Nathadwara. You can plan the day out from Udaipur (if you start early in the morning by say 6 or 7) for - kumbhalgarh, ranakpur, haldighati, nathadwara and eklingji. Of these it is better to avoid Haldighati and Eklingji. At Haldighati The tourist dept of Rajasthan has tried... More

The drive through Rakht Talai was nice, the road was well maintained and more or less clean. On driving towards the Haldighati museum (avoidable, don't even think about taking the camera inside, it is no good) you will come across a lot of stalls offering homemade extracts which are a must buy. They are fresh and on request, these lovely,... More

While on my trip to Udaipur in 2012, we visited many places like the great maharana pratap memorial. While returning back from the same, we were on our way to Haldighati, the paved way in mid of clayey yellow mountains was a bit unrealistic and treats to our eyes at the same time. Via Haldighati we reached our next pitstop... More

Haldighati is famous for Maharana Pratap's famous war with the Mughals and also where his famous horse 'Chetak' died being injured. HaldiGhati is known because the ghati is orange in color that's why its called HaldiGhati, means Turmeric color. Its a must visit from Udaipur to know its history.
