Strategically placed atop a hill in the Aravalli Range, RAAS Devigarh’s construction was completed in 1760 under the reign of Rajrana Sajja Singh II. The palace was originally built using locally-mined marble, a practice that was also followed during its restoration.Previously known as Delwara Fort Palace, the building’s origins lie long before its completion in 1760. In recognition of his service to the famous Maharana Pratap of Mewar, the principality of Delwara was gifted to Rajrana Sajja Singh and his brother, Ajja Singh, following the battle of Haldighati in the year 1576.
The palace fortress, as seen today, is testament to its brave and loyal benefactors. With the coming of the modern age, it has been transformed into one of the most spectacular luxury travel destinations in the region. The restoration of the hotel was undertaken by a team of 750 people over a period of almost 15 years. Finally, in 1999, Devigarh re-opened its doors, offering visitors a blend of new-world comforts and old-world charm.
