The First Duty of the Sovereign…

 
“Happy is that city which in time of peace thinks of war”

The years have not been kind. This is a place that is stuck in history that has had little to mention since the Capital of the local Mewar Kingdom was moved to Udaipur. Prior to that, it had a reasonable fort and city to match for the time period.

There is not much to say about this place. It is a good thing no one visits. The whole area is marred by desecrated and dilapidated monuments from the numerous successful conquests of the fort by foreign forces. There is precious little, but reminders of the vanquished past.

The Ignominy of being a conquered people… the saddest part is that this place has great potential to resurrect itself as a remarkable themed hotel complex for cultural tourists. Unfortunately, it seems everyone who ever believed in or cared for this place is long dead.
