The battle fought at the Haldighati mountain pass on 18th June 1576 is one of the most famous battles ever fought in Indian history. It was a bloody contestation of power between the all powerful Mughals and local Rajput rulers. A tale of great bravery, loyalty, ingenuity and of winning against all odds. For although there was a greater number of casualties amongst the Rajput army, who were also significantly smaller in manpower and weaker in weaponry, the Mughals failed to capture or overthrow the Rajputs. The Haldighati pass takes its name from the turmeric (haldi) hue of the soil. The shrine erected by Maharana Pratap of the Rajputs in honour of his beloved steed, Chetak can be seen near Haldighati. Haldighati also prides itself on its cottage industries, its rose products and mud art make particularly interesting souvenirs.
