History

Rao title was given to the Thakurs of Garhi by Maharana of Udaipur during their alliance to stop Mughal forces from entering Mewar.

Recently after the Rao Indrajit singh ji Chauhan, Rao Ranjit Singh ji was to be the next Rao Raja of Garhi but because of Motor-Neuron disease he passed away at an early age. The Palace of late Garhi Rao Saheb Shri Inderjeet Singh ji is now taken care by Her Highness. Also a part of the Palace was donated by Rao Saheb to run a government school in order to promote education in Garhi.
