Sardargarh, one of the magnificent forts of Rajasthan, is an extravagant creation by men of a bygone era, placed amidst the mountains and deep forests of Chuppun. Sardar Singh, one of the most powerful Dhodhias, built the Sardargarh Fort during 1738 to 1743. You can see the ramparts of the mystery filled Sardargarh, like a great ship anchored at outer sea, much before you get close to the gigantic walls soaring high above the low lying village of Lawa. Magnificent fort of Sardargarh is situated 94km north from Udaipur.
The emblem of the Sardar Singh family was a rising sun and a sword. Beneath that, they always wrote, “Work is thy duty, reward is not thy concern”.
At the Inauguration of Sardargarh in the year 1743, Maharana Jagat Singh — II the then King of Udaipur was so impressed by the architecture of the Fort that he appointed Thakur Sardar Singh to supervise the construction of Jag Niwas, now known as Lake Palace, a popular Land mark of Udaipur.
Sardar Singh Dhodhia erected a Castle in his domain of Lawah, on which he built a splendid palace whose China and Mirror halls are still the theme of encomium. These were greatly defaced by an explosion of a powder magazine, which threw down half the fortress that had taken five years to complete. Though it underwent considerable repair, it lost much of its splendour which the guns of Holkar aided to diminish. But the castle of Lawah is still one of the finest in Mewar.
