India is known famous for the infinite wars fought by our brave fighters . And one of the most famous and significant war was" Battle of Haldighati".
Haldighati is situated in the Aravalli Range of western Rajasthan. This place is famous for the wars being fought by the Kingdom of Mewar : Maharana Pratap and Mughal army : Emperor Akbar in 1576.
So to visit this historical place , I along with my family visited this place in around november '17.
We hired a private taxi from Bhilwara , and we started our road jouney on around 8 am . The total distance between Bhilwara and haldighati is 123 kms , so approximately around 11am we are at haldighati. We also took a break in between our journey to grab some breakfast and garam chai (tea) because chai is bae.
On our way to the world famous Haldighati Museum , we witness the beautiful mountain pass which is covered both sides by yellow turmeric like soil big stones , where actually the war was being fought .
In Haldighati Museum , the first thing to carry in mind is the timings , which is 9:30am to 7:30 pm for all 7 days. Then we took a ticket which costs Rs. 10 per person and Rs. 50 for camera.
The first thing we witness was a long queue and a very vast sculptures of the fighters with their equipments covered in goldish colour. That was very magnificent.
Then we entered the museum and there was a light and sound show of 15-30 minutes describing the battle of Haldighati and after math of that . As we move forward , there was many stalls of special kind of drink ( sharbat) which is available.
After witnessing all this , there was a small lake like pond where boating was available. But we didn't do it ( because those are for children).
Then we took some photographs and we exit the museum. Also the museum was very well developed with all the paintings , facts and figures, infrastructure and the main thing parking. The parking space was considerable and convenient.
The other place to visit in Haldighati is the "Chetan smarak". Chetak was a horse on which Maharana Pratap fought that battle. In the historical factuals , chetak was very significant and influential part of the battle and also for Maharana Pratap.
There is 5 minutes walk to reach chetak samarak. The sunray on the beautiful horse was breathtaking and the icing on the cake was the view from there .
On the way to samarak , there are many stalls , local vendors selling popcorn , many types of chats , nimbu Pani and many more . We had some of that and finally after climbing some stairs , we reached the place of samarak.
We roam around there sometime and we proceeded there on. Then we had lunch in nearby hotel and proceeded to Bhilwara on that day itself . We reached home safely around 10pm.
The day ended on a beautiful note.
There is not such thing of best season to visit haldighati because that place is neutral in accordance with any weather.
Personally , my favourite thing was the mountain pass and the view from chetak samark.
So guys , if you are looking for a one day trip nearby udaipur , Bhilwara and adjoining cities , this is the best place for you.
With adventure ,
