7. Bagore Ki Havelli:-In the vicinity of Pichola Lake, you can visit this haweli to have the glimpse of Royal Mewar. There lies a museum where you can look around the traditional arts and crafts of Rajputanas and a daily puppet show somewhere around 7 p.m. to attract you.
Bagore-Ki-Haveli is located by Lake Pichola, at Gangaur Ghat. Amar Chand Badwa, the Prime Minister of Mewar, built it in the 18th century. The massive palace has over a hundred rooms that display costumes and modern art. The glass and mirrors in the interiors are structured in classical haveli style. Also, you can enjoy the Folk Dance and Puppet shows every day at 7 pm in Bagor Ki Haveli.
Before we retired for the day, we headed to Bagore ki Haveli musuem for the folk dance show at 7:00pm. After waiting for about half an hour we were seated inside the haveli style building with a huge crowd. We continued the 'No-Camera' style here also. So we just sat there to absorb the real feel of 'being in Rajasthan'. If we don't have the intention to take pictures, we would surely enjoy the little happy moments with open mind & eyes! There were plenty of foreigners present, which is why I suggest you reach early to find a good seat in the front. A guy in traditional Rajasthani costume described about the type of dances performing and the names of artists. He briefly narrated stories before each performances so that the Non-Indians also understand the importance. There were many types of folk dances by beautiful Rajasthani women, a skit based on Goddess Kali, a puppet show, fire dance (a lady danced with a fire pot on head) and finally a pot dance which is related to life in desert. The highlight of this show was the artist, a 70 year old woman. Although all of the shows were amazing, the last performance stole the audience's heart. The elderly lady kept on adding the number of pots on her head, until there were about 10 pots. She was exceptionally good at her work and was highly confident. All of us congratulated her at the end of the show, I noticed her eyes turned moist. She is one brave lady I'll never forget in life. I guess this is the best place to indulge in true Rajasthani culture.
Bagore ki Haveli is situated near Pichola Lake. The 18th century construction was built by Amir Chand Badwa, Chief Minister at the Royal Court of Mewar. The Haveli became the residence of Maharana Shakti Singh of Bagore in the year 1878 and hence the name Bagore Ki Haveli. This was converted into museum retaining the royal touch to the building. The museum presents the culture of Mewar. The antique collections include the stuff used by Rajputs such as jewellery boxes, hand fans, copper vessels and so on. The massive building has over 100 rooms and looks splendid with its unique style of architecture. When you are there, make sure you present yourself for the shows conducted here in the evenings.
Bagore-ki-Haveli is a haveli in Udaipur. It is right on the waterfront of Lake Pichola at Gangori Ghat. It is a must go place to experience the local song, dance and culture of the city. The folk dances are spell bounding.
Bagore Ki Haveli is a perfect place to explore the grand life style of the royal family.This ancient complex catches the traveller's eye with its spectacular architecture and mesmerising dance and music shows. The palace has over a hundred rooms, with displays of costumes and modern art. The glass and mirror in the interiors are Haveli work. The two peacocks made from small pieces of colored glasses are examples of exquisite glasswork. Unique symbols of the Rajput clan, such as jewellery boxes, dice-games, hukkas, pan boxes, nut crackers, hand fans, rose water sprinklers, copper vessels and other items are also on display here.
This 18th-century Haveli was built by a Mewar Prime Minister and is set on the water’s edge in the Gangaur Ghat area. There are 138 rooms set around courtyards. The rooms are specially arranged in decorum to specifically evoke the period during which the house was inhabited; one very interesting house display is the world’s biggest turban. The Haveli also houses an interesting art gallery, featuring contemporary and folk art, and a selection of world-famous monuments carved out of polystyrene. The upper courtyard creates a magnetic setting for the Dharohar performances of Rajasthani dance at night.
