about moosi maharani ki chhatri

Situated within the royal complex of City Palace is the cenotaph of King Bhaktawar Singh and Queen Moosi, widely popular for its striking beauty. Not immediately evinced, do ask people around to guide you to Moosi Maharani ki chhatri as its known. 


Made of beautiful red sandstone, it stands against the backdrop of the emerald green palace pond that has steps leading to it. One of the mistresses of Maharaja Bhaktawar Singh, Moosi Maharani was given wifely status after she committed sati (self-immolation) on the Maharaja’s funeral pyre. Today you can see a number of city’s women paying homage to the Maharani. 


Though now faded, if you peer closely at the chhatri you can see the fine carving that used to be on the ceiling and interiors of the cenotaph. Do remember to take your shoes off before you enter the cenotaph.
