Place where Jauhar was performed by Rani Padmini

Maha Sati Sthal is a place situated in between Victory tower and Sam Dewar's Temple, a plane which is fenced by the Archaeological Department. Here the Jauhar was committed by Rani Padmini along 13, 000 Rajput women, after the death of Rattan Singh Rawal who was her husband. Jauhar a ritual form of mass suicide by immolation, practised by Rajput women to escape the dishonour at the hands of their enemies. Maharana Amar Singh built a Sati Gate towards North and Mahasati Gate in the Eastern side.It was the tradition in Rajputs that wife had to immolate herself in the pyre her dead husband, and this act was considered a sacred act by the society. This act was opposed by Raja Ram Mohan Roy and by Viceroy Lord Williams en-acted an anti sati law, there by making it illegal, which was a great act towards the end of this practice. Even Emperor Akbar also opposed this act of committing suicide. This is the place where one may understand the values of self respect and honour.
