Hotel Devigarh Palace Udaipur
Tucked away in the age-old Aravali hills of Rajasthan, the 18th century
Devi Garh Fort Palace, in the village of Delwara commands one of the three
main passes into the valley of Udaipur.
Sajja Singh, who hailed from the neighbouring state of Gujarat, was awarded
this strategically significant principality, in recognition of his bravery
and loyalty to Maharana Pratap against the Mughal emperor Akbar, at the
battle of Haldighati (1576). The actual construction of the fort palace
started only in the 1760s, under Raghudev Singh II, with further additions
being made to the structure by the rulers who followed.
The palace was absorbed into the state of Rajasthan in the 1960s, and was
subsequently abandoned. Today, after years of restoration and
reconstruction, Devi Garh has regained its past glory. An imposing and
impressive structure, it is now a unique all-suite boutique hotel, with 23
suites and 6 tents.
Situated 26 kilometers North-East of Udaipur, Devi Garh is a convenient 45
minutes' scenic drive from the city. The fort, surrounded by lush green
fields and mountains on three sides, overlooks the village of Delwara and is
close to the temples of Eklingji and Nagda. The combination of a traditional
Rajasthani village, the towering fort and the temples, makes for an
interesting mix.Udaipur is easily accessible via air from Delhi or Mumbai,
with convenient road and rail connections too.

the feel of it, if you can't play chess.
Landscapes and Courtyards
One of the most outstanding features of Devi Garh is its landscape design.
Using traditional materials and motifs, contemporary designs have been
created which embody the confluence between the old and the new. The raw
materials used are all local, with white marble being used extensively
throughout the palace. The two 12 feet high standing blocks of uncut white
marble at the entrance are symbolic sculptural representations of the stone
in its purest form.
Devi Garh stands, quite literally, in two worlds: the traditional and the
modern. Its ambience is an eclectic mix of skillfully crafted designs, both
old and new, functional and purely aesthetic. Local materials like marble
and semi-precious stones have been used in contemporary designs to create an
elegant beauty. Personalized service complemented by a wide range of modern
facilities goes towards making Devi Garh a comfortable and attractive
