The delight of Rajsamand District, “Haldighati” in known across the globe for the magnanimous quests of the great Maharana Pratap. Haldighati is a mountain pass in the Aravalli range bridging districts of Rajsamand and Pali in Rajasthan. The term Haldighati has been derived from the yellow colored soil of the place that gives a sense
of turmeric (in Hindi, turmeric is called as 'Haldi' and valley is known as' Ghati').It Ranges in an approximate distance of 44 kilometers from Udaipur and 17 kilometers from Nathdwara. This narrow turmeric coloured mountainous region which played a heavenly role in defending the honour of Mewar dynasty, is known as Haldighati.It is also known as rakht talai which is the anme of the museum in which all some of the scenes of battle are pictured very admirably.

The mountain pass is importantly momentous as the location of the historic Battle of Haldighati, which took place in 1576 between Rana Pratap Singh of Mewar and Raja Man Singh of Amber, general of the Mughal emperor Akbar.This voracious battle created amount of blood shed of the heroic soldiers and the red turned color of
sand still speaks of those courageous people.


When Mughal commander attacked this region , Employing the guerilla warfare technique, the Rajput forces pushed the Mughals from the royal camp at Badshah Baag to open plains of Rakt Talai (Village Khamnor ). Accustomed to warfare in open plains, the mughal forces fought with Pratap but the outcome was indecisive. Maharana Pratap,astride his favourite stead “CHETAK” attacked Man singh with his spear killed the mahout while Man Singh managed to escape. During the encounter, one of Chetak’s hind legs was wounded from sword held in the elephant’s trunk creating an emergency.Jhala Maan of Bari Sadri took away the royal insignia from Maharana Pratap who, though wounded himself, was fighting valiantly, and made him leave the battlefield. Jhala Maan died fighting but not before he had forced the Mughal army to back off to the east . Even today, the “ Maana Talab” reminds us of this martyr. The injured stead “Chetak” ran through the mountains carrying Pratap finally across the stream near village Balicha by jumping over it .There,finding Pratap safe, the loyal stead breathed his last. It would be difficult to find another such example of a
Horse’s devotion and loyalty to its master. The memorial bronze statue of Chetak still exist adding glory to this place.

Haldi Ghati captures major attention because the terra firma made the battlefield to the legend, Maharana Rana Pratap and his loyal horse, Chetak. The place gives a nostalgic feeling as this was the same place where Chetak, the heroic mount of Rana Pratap, breathed his last after leaving his master to a safe place.

At a distance of around 4 kms from the battlefield, a cenotaph (chattri) is built in pure white marble. This cenotaph is dedicated to the gallant horse Chetak as a sign of respect and admiration. The bloody battle of Haldighati has been captured an inescapable place in the History of India. The battle has been known since ages in murals and ballads. In the words of Col. James Todd (a British author), Haldighati has been referred as 'Thermopile of Mewar'.

Approaching to this place, one can visit Balicha village that is famous for its terracotta crafts. Badshahi Bagh is another place which is renowned for 'Chaitri-Gulab'. Here one can find original rose water and 'Gulkand' (Jam made from Rose petals) that has immense medicinal value and really tastes good. Thus, Haldighati is a place of interest for the people who value history and respect the heroes of India for their priceless efforts.

The Government of India commissioned the construction of Maharana Pratap National Memorial in the year 1997, and in June 2009 the monument was finally dedicated.
