This palace is unique for the purpose for which it was constructed. The palace was built by Sajjan Singh to keep a watch over the monsoon clouds in the surrounding region. Later it was used as a hunting retreat for the royal family. Initially the king had intended to establish a nine storied astronomical center at this spot but his sudden demise shattered his plans.
Also known as the Monsoon Palace, it is located on top of a hill overlooking Lake Pichola and dominates the city's skyline. Built in the late (18th Century) by Maharana Sajjan Singh as an observatory, it has a breathtaking view of the city and the surrounding lakes, rivers and Aravalli ranges. It is surrounded by wooded hillsides and was once a royal hunting ground.
A visit to Sajjan Garh is highly recommended. It is an excellent place to view the sunset. Some sections of the road are very steep and narrow. The palace building is currently used by the Government of India and is a restricted security area. The hillside leading up to Sajjan Garh is a wildlife sanctuary.
