Devigarh Fort



Devigarh Fort Palace of Rajasthan is situated at a distance of approximately 28 km from Udaipur. It serves as one of the three corridors that lead to the city of lakes, Udaipur. Dating back to the 18th century, this fort palace stands enveloped by the massive Aravalli range of Rajasthan. This important principality was bestowed to Sajja Singh of Gujarat in recognition for his valiance and loyalty. He stood by Maharana Pratap Singh against the Mughal emperor Akbar, at the battle of Haldighati (1576) and was honored by the award of Devigarh. However, the construction work on the fort palace got underway only in the 1760s, under Raghudev Singh II. 

After the initial construction, successive rulers made many additions to the Devi Garh Fort Palace. After merging into the state of Rajasthan in the 1960s, the palace was later abandoned. However, after years of restoration and reconstruction, it has now been converted into the Devi Garh Palace Heritage Hotel, near Udaipur. The mingling of the modern design with the age-old heritage, gives a special touch to the palace hotel. Devigarh Palace Hotel of Rajasthan is a unique all-suite boutique hotel. A stay in this heritage hotel will bring you all the comforts of a hotel, while, at the same time, giving a taste of the rich royal legacy of the state............
