The palace is situated in the Chittorgarh fort and was built in the 13th century for the legendary Queen Padmini whose beauty resulted in the historic battle between Allauddin Khilji and Rana Ratan Singh. As the legend goes, Rani Padmini self-immolated herself in a ritual fire pit to save her honor from the enemy with all the pride attributed to a true Rajput lady.

Rani Padmini was a celebrated beauty and according to a legend, it was here that Rana Ratan Singh showed a glimpse of her to Allauddin Khilji, the Sultan of Delhi. It overlooks a pool in which the 'Zanana Mahal' is situated, where Padmini stood when her reflection was shown to Allauddin Khilji in a mirror placed in the main hall.
