Bagore Ki Haveli
 

Bagore Ki Haveli, an antique building famed for its carved designs and glasswork is located on the platform of Gangori Ghat on the right side of Pichola Lake. Bagore Ki Haveli was built in the eighteenth century by Amir Chand Badwa who was the Chief Minister at the Mewar Royal Court and after his death, the Haveli came under the control of Mewar State. During 1878, the haveli was used as the residence of Maharana Shakti Singh of Bagore and since then it came to be known as Bagore Ki Haveli which means Mansion of Bagore. The interior of Bagore Ki Haveli having more than 100 rooms with well-arranged balconies, terraces, courtyards and corridors are elaborately adorned with intricate and fine mirror work.

Bagore Ki Haveli was left vacant for more than 50 years; deteriorated over the years and was handed over to the West Zone Cultural Centre (WZCC) in the year 1986. Restoring the old architectural style of Bagore ki Haveli, WZCC has set up a museum in the haveli complex. Representing the patrician culture of Mewar dynasty, the museum exhibits original Mewar mural paintings, royal costumes, jewellery boxes, modern arts, dice-games, hukkas, pan boxes, nut crackers, hand fans, rose water sprinklers, copper vessels and other items of the erstwhile rulers. Another attraction of the museum is the two peacocks made out of small pieces of coloured glass. Bagore Ki Haveli is a perfect place to explore the ancient architecture and life style of the royal family.
