Set in the lush Girwa valley, surrounded by the Aravallis hills interspersed with translucent lakes lies Udaipur (City of Sunrise).

Part of a Painting (City Palace Museum collection) Showing Maharana Sajjan Singh celebraing Sitala Ashtami at Rangniwas.The Rangniwas Palace was built during the reign of Maharana Sajjan Singh (1874-84) as a platform to watch the ceremony of Sithala Asthami and later dancing performances.

In the early 20th centuary Maharana Fateh Singh (the light of the Hindus), built the palace up and added the upper floors. 

It has been recently restored and you will find all modern facilities and comfort. Good services and personal management by the members of the family who are descendants of the founder of the Kingdom of Mewar, are the hallmark of Rangniwas.

In 1955 Maharana Bhagwat Singh gifted the Palace to his youngest brother Maharaj Arjun Singh who used it as a private residence. In 1975 he converted Rangniwas into a Palace Hotel.
