Udaipur is famous for its artificial lakes and historical monuments. There are many places to visit in Udaipur like City Palace, Lake Pichola, Lake Palace, Saheliyon Ki Bari etc. etc. Known as “City of Lakes”, the weather is milder than other places of Rajasthan. In this first post of the Udaipur Series, I am posting Images from Maharana Pratap Memorial Complex.

There is also a museum (Hall of heroes), where there are a lot of paintings depicting the incidents of the Mewar empire. Udaipur, formerly was the capital of the Mewar Kingdom. The above three images are from the Museum.

The above images depict the Statue and park area dedicated to Bhamashah, who was a noted general, minister and close aide of the great Maharana Pratap. Bhama Shah was a great general, adviser, minister of Mewar who was later promoted to post of Prime Minister of Mewar by Maharana Pratap, to whom he served as close aide and confidant. He along with his younger brother Tarachand fought in several battles for Mewar.

The memorial comprises a life-sized bronze statue of Maharana Pratap balanced on his loyal and favorite horse, Chetak. He was extremely protective towards Maharana Pratap and stood by his master till his last breath. Chetak was killed in the battle of Haldighati. People visit this memorial to pay their homage to the Rajput hero, Rana Pratap and his loyal mount ‘Chetak’. The images above and shows the Statue and the pavilion where the Statue is erected.
