Back in the princely vistas Maharaja Bhan Singh ji laid the stone of Bhindar Rajmahal in the 16th century henceforth every successive ruler of Bhindar went on to add more buildings to Rajmahal , time worn but they still faithfully replicate history.

Although Mewar sustained incalculable myriad of Islamic invasions but the land by the enemy was only temporarily occupied,hence no such Islamic or foreign impact is observed in the arts,architecture,culture of this region.

This mammoth immersion of rajput heritage in all its magnificence has civil, military and sacred spreads. The civil area maintained the three ,’administrative block’,’common living quarters’ and the ladies section which from mughal days was better known as The Zenana Mahal.

The administrative block houses the courts also referred as kacheries ,the dramatic gokhra is the facade to the living quarters that fall behind it.

Ravages through time may have altered some of the external features but the rest is the same. The ammunitions and other war material were housed in a safe structure adjoining the common living quarters courtyard later known as the silehkhana.Though the main fortified ramparts are still there the burjh on the four corners are not clearly visible yet it would not be erroneous to address this building as a chouburjha structure.
