A fortified outpost of the kingdom of Mewar that included Chittorgarh and Udaipur, Bhainsrorgarh is located 235 kilometers northeast of Udaipur and 50 kilometers south of Kota and has a remarkable history. Built by Rawat Lal Singh (second son of Rawat Kesri Singh of Slumber), Bhainsrorgarh was granted as a jagir (fiefdom) by Maharana Jagat Singh II of Mewar in 1741 A.D.
Little wonder, Bhainsrorgarh has been rated as the Best Heritage Hotel in India by Tatler Travel Guide, UK. (2008, 2009). Bhainsrorgarh held great importance to the Chundawat clan of Sisodia Rajputs, as it was granted to Rao Chunda after he renounced the Mewar throne for his yet to be born younger brother.
As the eldest son of Rana Lakha, then ruler of Mewar, Chunda Ji was the heir apparent to the throne of Chittor. The Chief of Bhainsrorgarh was counted among the 16 first-class nobles of Mewar and was conferred the title of ”Rawat” by Maharana of Mewar.
