Udaipur Darshan (Sightseeing) Rs.300/-* *Minimum Group 4 Person Required


This town of Jhala Rajputs is 35 km. northwest of Udaipur, situated on a very high peak about 905 m. above sea level in the Aravalli Hills (reached by a hair-raising pass). It abounds with Hindu and Jain temples, and it was here that Maharana Pratap Singh I was crowned in 1572. Gogunda has played an important role in Mewar's history. It was once the estate (jagir) of the JHALA clan. The founder of Udaipur, Maharana Udai Singh II died here (1572) and his eldest son and successor, Maharana PRATAP SINGH I (1572-1597) was subsequently crowned here. Being on the road between Udaipur and Kumbhalgarh, and thence to the kingdom of Marwar, Gogunda became a strategic staging centre. Pratap, forsaking the luxury of Udaipur, made Gogunda the new (temporary) capital of Mewar.

Later he adopted Kumbhalgarh his new seat of government and began his guerrilla warfare against the Mughals. One of his first tasks was to reinforce many forts throughout the Aravalli Hills, Gogunda being one of them. Pratap held his final war council here prior to the Battle of HALDIGHATI (June 18, 1576), which is sometimes called the Battle of Gogunda, although the town is several kilometres south of the township of Haldighati.
