History of Deogarh 

In the olden days, 'Rawat', the chief of Deogarh was one of sixteen umraos (feudal barons), who was entitled to wait upon the Maharana of Udaipur, the capital of Mewar. These feudal estates were known as the 'Thikanas' and were sanctioned by the ruling Maharana to a nobleman either due to blood relationship or for an act of valour. Deogarh was also the seat of the Chundawat clan of Sisodia Rajputs. The fort of Deogarh or the Deogarh Mahal was built in the 1670 AD by Rawat Dwarka Dasji as a family residence.
