Saheliyon ki Bari in Udaipur recreates regal grandeur as you walk along marble pathways flanked by life size marble sculptures of elephants and lions spurting water into exotic water pools.

Fascinating Saheliyon-ki-Bari or the 'garden of maids' was designed and built under the express guidance of Maharana Sangram Singh II. It is believed that Saheliyon ki Bari was constructed for 48 maids who accompanied the Maharana's wife as dowry.

Designed as a pleasure park, Saheliyon ki Bari served as a place of frolic and enjoyment for the ladies of the household.

Later Maharana Bhopal Singhji constructed a pavilion of 'rain fountains' within the Saheliyon ki Bari. The idea was to create an illusion of rain dancing in rhythm with dancing maids.

The garden was constructed for forty-eight young ladies-in-waiting sent to the royal house, as part of the dowry. This small ornamental garden was a popular relaxing spot where royal ladies came for a stroll.
