Ahar Overview

Ranked 86 of 184 sightseeing in Udaipur

Ahar is famous for being the cremation ground of the rulers of Mewar. Renowned as an archaeological site, the town is famous for the cenotaphs of the royal rulers and an archaeological museum.

Located at a distance of 3 km from Udaipur, the town has more than 19 cenotaphs of the kings, who were cremated here. The memorial consists of several columns that are supported by platforms sheltered by arched roofs.

Ornamentations that are similar to the 15th century temples embellish the architraves of the roofs. An image of Lord Shiva and a figure representing Maharana with his 'Satis' adorns the single upright stone of these architraves.

Some of the cenotaphs of the site include the ones dedicated to Maharana Amar Singh, Maharana Sangram Singh, Swaroop Singh and Shambhu Singh.

Other rulers of Mewar that have their cenotaphs at the site include Fateh Singh, Bhupal Singh, Bhagwat Singh Mewar and Sajjan Singh. A rare collection of antiques is housed in a museum located close to the cremation ground.
