It was famous place in history for battle between Maharan Pratap and Akbar Army. The land in this area is yellow so it is called Haldighati. It is narrow road for transportation. In this famous battle brave horse of Maharana Pratap Chetak was died.

I visited this place recently. Tells a lot about the hardships and valour of great Maharana Pratap. Not many foreign tourists there. There is a museum which is privately owned, a documentry and story regarding the past. Visit this place if u know or want to know about Maharana Pratap

A visit to Haldighati can be combined with (a) visit from Udaipur to Ranakpur and Kumbalgarh (but this tends to make the day very long).

Haldighati is worth visiting place if you are passing from udaipur to nathdwara or in udaipur or nathdwara. It has memorial and famouse statute of maharana pratap on chetak, having good haldighati museum with good video / audio presentation. So overall great place to visit many fun activities for kids like hourse / camel riding etc.

We had read, in school, about the battle between Raja of Mewar and Emperor Akbar at Haldighati. A drive through this place and look at hills around, gives feeling hard to describe in words. Cut through the hill that carves road shows yellow colour soil, giving name Haldighati. It was not clear before.

Historic and scenic places. Kumbhalgarh is a strategic marvel. Haldighati is a moving story of man and animal.

This place is almost 40-45 kms from Udaipur, 20 from Nathadwara. The HALDIGHATI name has come by the fact that the soil of that region is like haldi ( a spice with yellow color). THE HALDIGHATI war had been fought on June 18 ,1579 between the Royal Soldiers of Akbar ( Raja Man Singh of Amber ) & Maharana Pratap... More
