Situated 40 Km. from Udaipur, Haldighati, a famed mountain pass in the hills of the Aravalli Range gets its name from the yellow-coloured soil of the region. The mountain pass is the site where the Battle of Haldighati was fought in 1576 between Rana Pratap Singh of Mewar and Raja Man Singh of Amber who was the general of the Mughal emperor Akbar. The Maharana Pratap National Memorial here is dedicated to the spirit and valour of the Rajput King. The memorial, a cenotaph with white marble columns, displays a bronze statue of the Maharana riding Chetak.
