About Pratap Gaurav Kendra
In the memory of the Maharana Pratap, the great warrior of Mewar, who fought valiantly for his kingdom and people, and whose personality cannot be matched and to honor him, the Veer Shiromani Maharana Pratap Samiti established the PRATAP GAURAV KENDRA RASHTRIYA TIRTH, a new Tirth in Tiger Hills near Manoharpura, Badgaon, Udaipur, Rajasthan.
The goal of this initiative is to provide information about Mewar’s historical idol Maharana Pratap and his history and to use contemporary tools to reveal details about the historical heritage. It is prepared to showcase the country’s great past in a language and media that the majority of people understand, such as audio and visual, 3D presentation, live mechanical model, water show, art galleries, and so on. The main goal is to raise public awareness about the history of the Mewar warriors and their pride journey.
Structure of Pratap Gaurav Kendra
Veer Shiromani Maharana Pratap Samiti was created in 2002 to make aspirations come true or to embody Sri Sohan Singh Ji’s vision, and a piece of 25 bigha land was purchased in 2007. This project was estimated to cost 100 crore rupees. Sangh swayamsewaks also provided money to this cause. This is situated across 25 bighas of land and will have a 60-painting exhibition connected to Maharana Pratap’s life. The project presents knowledge in bits and pieces, backed up by facts, detailing how Bharat was once a world leader, how it was looted by invaders, and how its borders were reduced. Watching the world’s largest, 57-foot-high statue of holy king Maharana Pratap seated on a rock will leave you speechless.
There is a Maharana Pratap exhibition with wonderful paintings depicting Maharana Pratap’s life and captions in Hindi and English. The Galleries feature a magnificent statue depicting the life of Rajasthan Heroes, complete with a caption in Hindi and English. The Rajasthani Gaurav Dirgha provided glimpses of it. The stories of inspiring men and women’s lives continue to inspire us in this region of sand dunes. Haldighati Yudh Vijay dirgha presents the truth about the Haldighati war through live 3D scenes set in the year 1576A.
Bharat Darshan dirgha depicts Bharat’s geographical and cultural splendor from ancient times to the present. It focuses on Takshashila, where students from all over the world used to gather to learn. Sitting in one room, one can envision the most important pilgrimage sites, rivers, holy cities, sapta puris, temples, and their significance. It comes to life through the use of light and sound.
Apart from educating the public about the glorious past, it also encourages them to consider why many of our hallowed sites, such as Kailash Mansarovar, are located in China. There is also a 12-foot metal statue of Bharat Mata, which signifies that every iota of his life, every drop of blood from his body is dedicated to her devotion. The project boasts cutting-edge infrastructure that will keep visitors entertained for at least two to three hours.
