Thomas Fuller rightly stated that’ A memory is a memorial treasure in which the monuments are maintained and preserved for life. You can’t forget that every palace has an exciting story about its residents or partners. A story like this is told in the Sajjangarh Palace, also known as the “Monsoon Palace.”
Sajjangarh Fort is a magnificent building constructed on Aravalli Hill from the devastation of the times. The Sajjangarh Palace was built in 1884 and is the Maharana Sajjan Singh palace residence. The Palace overlooks Lake Fateh Sagar, the town palace and Chittorgarh, the King’s ancestor house.
The Sajjangarh Palace, constructed with beautiful white marble, stands at the height of Bandara hill of the Aravalli (400 ft above sea level). The palace would have been nine-story, in keeping with the design drawn up by Maharana Sajjan Singh. However, the design was shelved due to the King’s premature death. Nevertheless, Fateh Singh, his replacement, was later completed. The Royal Family used palace Sajjangarh as the hunter’s lodge and the monsoon’s clouds naming palace Sajjangarh Monsoon Palace. The prices of the tickets are very nominal. The rate is Rs. 10 for Indians and the price increases to Rs. 80 for foreigners.
For any day of the week, the Palace is open.
The door opens at 08:00 and closes at 06:00 PM.
