Among the major tourist places of Udaipur, there is a tourist place which fills the mind with pride and awakens patriotism in the heart. The site is a hill known as Moti Magri.

There is a famous monument of Maharana Pratap on Moti Magri which was developed by Maharana Bhagwant Singh Mewar in the 70s.

This memorial pays tribute to the world-famous Battle of Haldighati between the forces of Maharana Pratap and Mughal Emperor Akbar and is a memorial to all the prominent warriors who participated in this war to protect the motherland.

Along with the statue of Maharana Pratap sitting on Chetak on Moti Magri, there are bronze statues of his associates Bhilu Rana Poonja, Jhala Mann, Danveer Bhamashah and commander Hakim Khan Sur installed at different places.

Moti Magri has great historical importance along with being a memorial to Maharana Pratap. Moti Magri is the place where Maharana Udai Singh, who founded Udaipur, had his first residence. The evidence of this residence is still present in the form of the ruins of Moti Mahal located here.
