Deogarh

While the princes of Rajasthan built stately palaces and forts, their noblemen were not for behind in building stately mansions. Deogarh is one such feudal estate in Mewar, the premier state of Rajasthan. The chieftains of this region were titled Rawats (feudal barons) and their estates were called thikanas. The thikana of Deogarh lies on the border of Mewar, Marwar and Merwara, about 135 kilometres north-east of Udaipur and 280 kilometres south-west of Jaipur.
