Situated in the North and leads to City Palace

The Hathi Pole or Elephant Gate is situated in the North and leads to City palace, the main Royal residence in Udaipur. This is the monument of Udaipur, a walled city which was established by Maharana Udai Singh and it was the capital of Mewar after Chittorgarh, which was sacked by the Mughal Army in 1567, gate's door panel are studded with sharp spikes. Hathi Pole is also now a beautiful and colourful market of modern Udaipur, and markets attracts the visitors for special Mewar's crafts and art. If you have an eye for art, do shop for the famous Pichwai and Phad paintings of Rajasthan, apart from other miniature paintings and traditional Rajasthani artwork at Hathi Pol Bazaar. In this market prices are not fixed so a bargain is essential.This gate is quite significant having two gates adjoined at right angle, fountains and garden may be the later addition and above the gate special quarters are built. Though in front of the gate Bhama Shah's Statue, who was a great donor, reminds a great memory as he helped Maha Rana Pratap. One Road leads to the City palace, Bada Bazaar, Chetak circle, Jagdish Temple, Gulab Bagh etc attraction are nearby
