Saheliyon Ki Bari Overview

Ranked 4 of 184 sightseeing in Udaipur

Saheliyon Ki Bari is famous for its lush green lawns, marble art and fountains. Located on the banks of Fateh Sagar Lake, the garden was built in the 18th century by Maharana Sangram Singh for the royal ladies.

Legend states that the garden was designed by the king himself, after which he presented it to his queen. To offer a place of recreation to all the 48 maids, who had accompanied the queen after her marriage, this garden was made.

Apart from fountains in its four water pools, chiselled kiosks and marble elephants, the garden is also embellished with a lotus pool and bird-fountains. Green lawns, flowerbeds and marble pavilions are the highlights of the garden. Built by Maharana Bhopal Singh, a pavilion of rain fountains was made in order to form an illusion of rain dancing in cadence with dancing maids.

From England, these fountains were imported. Four black marbled kiosks are visible at the corners of the main reservoir. In its centre, one white marbled kiosk is located. The fountains are in the form of sculpted birds, on the top of kiosks. These birds spurt water from their beaks producing the rain effect. A huge collection of royal households is put on display in the museum located within the garden complex.

Literally meaning 'Garden of the Maids of Honour', it has numerous fountains located strategically in the four scenic pools. With over 100 varieties, a rose garden greets visitors. The garden's lotus pools and fountains have been placed at a lower level than the waters of Fateh Sagar. This also ensures that they are gravity-fed.

On the left of the central square, the 'Savan-Bhado' fountain is present. Daintily sculptured chhatris (pavilions) of soft black stone adorn the pond on the west. These sculptured chhatris are surrounded on all sides by fountains.

Garden with historical importance

On the banks of Fateh sagar lake, this place is just a garden now. But it has a historical connection. The entrance to this place is just Rs. 10/-. Do hire a guide because otherwise you'll feel it's just a park, There's nothing written anywhere. A guide will charge you only Rs. 100/- but will give you a lot of information which otherwise you wouldn't get It's a nice garden with a huge fountain in between. The park is well maintained on one side while the other part needs a bit of maintenance. This place requires anywhere between 45-90 mins

A nicely maintained garden

This is well maintained as a historical park or garden. It has a number of fountains and lawns to click. Not really a huge place but worth a visit in the evening. A very calm and quite place to move around. Flower gardens are well taken care of.

Good place to relax

A small hand crafted garden provides a good place to sit and enjoy the greenery with the sound of water. Its nothing outstanding if you have been to some of the huge gardens that India has.But overall a decent place.

A place that reminds you of royal Luxry

Good place to have some leisure time. It reminds you of the time where the Rani (Queen) had her own park /abode. There is a good museum if your are a history lover. The park behind it well maintained and gives you opportunity to take some good shots on your camera.

Nothing to see here

When I heard the name of this attraction, I had hoped it would have good amount of historical artifacts and things to offer.How disappointed I was!There is nothing to see here, apart from a garden that surrounds a pseudo-museum which has no relevance to the place.I would rather visit Jagganathji temple again and again just to see the over-enthusiastic bhajan singer, even though I am not a religious kind of person.

Oasis in dry land.

Those kings and queens knew how to live it up. What a marvelous and relaxing place. Also the technology used for bringing water from far lakes is same as used in Aurangabad's panchaki.

A nice garden

It was vacation time in summer and Udaipur was nice option due to nearness to Gujarat and connectivity with all cities. The City is also known as lake city due to various lakes like Pichhola lake, fateh sagar lake etc.The City palace, RAna pratap memorial, saheliyo ki badi, pichhola lake, manassas purna karni mata temple are the main attraction to visit in udaipur.It is well maintained and well equipped garden with central fountain in the middle of garden.Separate science museum is also nice attraction for children.Earlier central fountain was operated on natural gravitational force of water from fateh sagar lake. But with the changes in water level and accumulation of waste in water it is made operational with electricity now.
