Reviews • 16
Built by Rana Sangram Singh as a garden for women, Saheliyo-ki-Bari is a popular tourist destination.
After Scrumptious breakfast in our hotel itself, we started off to Saheliyon ki bari. 10rs entry and is a huge garden with various sections. We were bored after with just 2 and after few photographs, we left from there.
Her Mom's place was just next lane to  Sahelion ke bari. We both spend good time  and then left for Shopping @ Hathi pol. Its nice place for Shopping and should get good deal there. We had Gujrati Thali @ Kanak Dinning Hall and after that we went  Fateh Sagar Lake.
We rang up the auto guy by noon and started the city tour. The first on list was a boat ride on the lake. After the ride, we skipped a few small attractions on the way and stopped at Saheliyon ki Bari. As per history, this garden was designed by the king himself and he presented this garden to his queen. The Queen was accompanied by 48 maids in her marriage. This patterned garden used to be the popular relaxing spot of the royal ladies. The queen with her maids and female companions used to come here to spend their time in leisure. It will take only 10 minutes to cover this spot.

5. Roam around the Saheli ki baadi if it is not a hot day. Else, take rest for a while in your hotel and prepare yourself for the exotic evening.
Since I didn't know anything about the place so I asked the hotel owner for the tourists spots. He was very gentle. He made a list of places on a paper and numbered them so I could follow it like a map. All places are within 5-6kms. I first visited Saheliyon ki Bari (Bari means garden). A beautiful lush green garden with Lotus pool and elephant fountains at the centre. It was built by the then King for his Queen.
5) Saheliyon Ki Bari: Its not what I had expected. Very small. But the chamber inside the garden looks good.
This is an interesting place. This place was built because Rani was sad that she was not allowed to go out and enjoy with her friends. So Maharaja built this entire place so that Rani can enjoy!!!!<br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br />5. Maharana Pratap Memorial aka Moti MagriMaharana Pratap Memorial is a historic site that is dedicated to the gallant Maharana Pratap. Situated at the top of Moti Margi or Pearl Hill, the memorial overlooks the Fateh Sagar Lake.
Close to the Fateh Sagar Lake, a collection of beautiful picturesque gardens built for the recreation of the Princess and her 48 maidens. The fountains were a delight to watch and the lush green gardens filled with all kinds of flowers were remarkable.
Saheliyon-ki-Bari (Courtyard of the Maidens) is a major garden and a popular tourist space in Udaipur in Indian state of Rajasthan. It lies in northern part of the city and has fountains and kiosks, a lotus pool and marble elephants. It was built by Rana sangram Singh. Saheliyon ki Bari means Garden of the Maidens. There is also a small museum here.
Like most of the other small places in Udaipur visiting this place is a maximum 30 mins affair, so you should definitely visit it for the nice flowers and fountains.
An example of a Royalties' need to spend on just about anything.
Saheliyon ki badi (Courtyard of the maidens). King Sangram Singh had built this enthralling garden in 1710. This garden was laid out for their leisure time. King Sangram and Princess Shankuntala came here to spend there weekends. It has 48 women attendants who came as part of a princess’s dowry and has beautiful, well-maintained fountains, kiosks, marble elephants and a delightful lotus pool. Saheliyon Ki Badi is one of the most beautiful gardens and a major tourist destination in Udaipur. It is the garden of maids.
Flowers in full bloom, cool fountains and artistic architecture- this beautiful Badi is a perfect escape from the scorching desert sun. The garden is famous for its lush green lawns, marble art and fountains. English translation of Saheliyon Ki Bari means "Garden of maids". This renowned garden is located on the banks of Fateh Sagar Lake, presenting a green retreat in the dry lands of Rajasthan. It was built in the 18th century by Maharana Sangram Singh for the royal women. Today, the crystalloid fountains, lotus pool, marbled elephants sprinkling water and many more attractions have made the garden a must visit for Udaipur explorers.
Saheliyon ki Bari basically is a garden and courtyard for the royal maidens. It was built by Maharana Bhopal Singh as a recreational space for the 48 maidens that had accompanied his wife after their marriage. When it was built, it had just the garden but the fountains were added about 125 years ago and worked without any motor, they just use natural pressure of the fountain due to its shape and the water comes from Fateh Sagar lake.
