Prince of Mewar’s Initiatives To Transform The Life Of Udaipur

India has contributed to many brave warriors whose great legends have inspired us. One of them, Maharana Pratap Singh, is considered the first Indian freedom fighter as he resisted Akbar’s attempts at conquest. His successor and scion of the 1,500-year-old Mewar family, Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar of Udaipur, honours his dynasty through his activities.

Lakshyaraj Singh is a Philanthropist, Educationist, Sports Patron, Business Leader and Six times Guinness World Records Holder.


Lakshyaraj was brought up, with respect and reverence for his illustrious family heritage. He grew up hearing stories about his brave ancestors and their wonderful customs. Maharana Bhagwat Singh Mewar, his paternal grandfather, was a living example of the importance of giving back to the community while upholding moral and ethical standards, and he had a profound impact on him.


Lakshyaraj finished his schooling at Mayo College in Ajmer, Rajasthan. His passion for cricket made him choose Australia for his further studies. Lakshyaraj received his Bachelor of Commerce from the Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School in Australia. He has completed a Professional Development Programme from Cornell Nanyang Institute of Hospitality Management in addition to the University of New England’s Bachelor of Commerce in Hospitality and Tourism programme.
