The Sajjangarh Fort is built on the highest known peak of Udaipur, called the Bandara Peak, at an elevation of 944 m. It was named after Maharana Sajjan Singh who built it in the 1880s. It is also known as the Monsoon Palace because it appears to float above the clouds during the monsoon season. It offers an enchanting panoramic view to the eyes of tourists who can gaze at the entire city and its lakes and palaces, with the vast blanket of flush green flora from the fort. The pathway to the palace can give one an adrenaline rush as one climbs the snake-like curvy road. Providing a bird's-eye view of Udaipur with its alluring sunset, Sajjangarh manages to stand out.
