On 20th October 2019, Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation and The City Palace Museum, Udaipur celebrated their 50th anniversary. The two institutions are interlinked and interdependent in many ways since its inception in 1969. To commemorate this landmark event, an exhibition titled ‘Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation: Moments and Memoirs’ is opened to the Museum visitors from 20th October 2019 at the south-side of Osara, Zenana Mahal.
The exhibition highlights the many challenges and emotions behind the creation of these two institutions; attempting to trace their history, outline their efforts, progress and future goals. From archival photographs of events in the early days to the speech read out by the Maharana himself, Maharana Bhagwat Singh Mewar (r. 1955-1984 CE), at the foundation ceremony of Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation, The City Palace Museum, Udaipur. The exhibition captivated the visitors as they journey through the 50 years of these two institutions with contexts of not just Udaipur but also India and the world as a whole.
