Mewar Sound and Light Show in Udaipur

mewar Sound and Light show

A glimpse into the royal past of Udaipur through a sound and light show is attracting tourists to Rajasthan’s famed city of lakes.

The one-hour Son et Lumiere (sound and light show) titled “Legacy of Honour” presents glimpses of 1,500 years of history of the Mewars of the state. The privately initiated project was started in last season by the Udaipur royalty to attract tourists to the city.

The narrative traces 15 centuries of history that includes the foundation of Mewar by Bappa Rawal, the ‘Johar’ (self-immolation to protect honour) of Chittor’s Rani Padmini, the story of Mughal emperor Humayun and Rani Karmavati, the story of Pannadhai who sacrificed her own son for the safety of Prince Udai Singh and the battle of Haldi Ghati.

The show ends on a contemporary note, recounting the vision of Maharana Bhagwat Singh who turned the palace into a heritage hotel more than 40 years ago and who instituted the Maharana Mewar Charitable Foundation (MMCF) Trust to both conserve Mewar’s rich heritage and develop the region.

Around 600,000 tourists, both domestic as well as foreign, visit the city every year and we feel that this show would certainly help to boost tourism in the city.

L M Wong, a tourist from US said, “It is indeed a wonderful experience. I won’t mind sitting the whole night long if history is presented in such a fascinating manner.”


 Show in Hindi: 8 pm to 9 pm (May to September)
 Show in English: 7 pm to 8 pm (October to September), 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm (April)

Duration: 60 Minutes
