Moti Magri Udaipur: The Bravery of Maharana Pratap

One of the memorials built to salute the dauntless Rajputana Maharana Pratap stands stock-still at the Pearl Hill known as Moti Magri.
Udaipur was addressed as Mewar in the ancient time, which was a crucial part of the Rajput dynasty.

The Indian soil sings the tales of audacious men and women who gave their lives to protect their land.

Now the souvenirs of their bravery were left that were turned into memorials.

The place is the best place for enjoying the sunset and reciting the tales of The Great Maharana Pratap and his horse Chetak who gave their all to save motherland.
