the magnificent forts of Rajasthan, is an
extravagant creation by men of a bygone era, placed
amidst the mountains and deep forests of Chuppun.
Sardar Singh, one of the most powerful Dhodhias,
built the Sardargarh Fort during 1738 to 1743. You
can see the ramparts of the mystery filled
Sardargarh, like a great ship anchored at outer sea,
much before you get close to the gigantic walls
soaring high above the low lying village of Lawa.
Magnificent fort of Sardargarh is situated 94km
north from Udaipur.
At the Inauguration of
Sardargarh in the year 1743, Maharana Jagat Singh -
II the then King of Udaipur was so impressed by the
architecture of the Fort that he appointed Thakur
Sardar Singh to supervise the construction of Jag
Niwas, now known as Lake Palace, a popular Land mark
"Sardar Singh Dhodhia
erected a Castle in his domain of Lawah, on which he
built a splendid palace whose China and Mirror halls
are still the theme of encomium. These were greatly
defaced by an explosion of a powder magazine, which
threw down half the fortress that had taken five
years to complete.
The Mahal of
the Ravala with 21 suites, also known as the Zenana Mahal, are today
part of the Sardargarh Heritage Hotel. Each suite here is known by a
derivation of the name of the Queen who resided in it, in medieval
times. Even the decor is in the favourite colours of the respective
Queens. As far as possible, the authentic elements of the Fort have
been retained in the Hotel. For instance, the pillars, doors and
mantles are all authentic originals.
The fort still
retains its medieval underground infrastructure - passage systems,
rooms, halls, granaries and stores, open today to guests of the
Hotel. The Hotel offers a breathtaking view on all sides. To its
north is the enthralling view of the Lake. The Darbar Hall offers a
charming vista of the village. And looming over the horizon is the
imposing Aravalli Hill Range. In short, a sabbatical at Sardargarh
will be a unique experience that visitors will recount to their
grandchildren with pride.
At the roof top restaurant, the heritage hotel pleases your taste
buds with a wide variety of Indian and Continental cuisine. The
restaurant specializes in delicacies from Mewar.
