At the Northern edge of Mewar, Dewair is situated between the mountain ranges spread in close proximity of Kumbhalgarh and Madaria. In the olden times, it had been under the domination of different tribes from Mer to Deora Rajputs.

Maharana Pratap made the adventurous military campaigns of the Mughal ruler ineffective by resorting to gorilla warfare. On the auspicious occasion of Vijaya Dashmi, in 1852, he was crowned with historic victory, which led to the automatic liquidation of all 36 Moghul military outposts in Mewar. After this humiliating defeat, Akbar stopped his military campaigns against Mewar.

The victory of Dewair was a crowning glory for Maharana Pratap. Col. James Tod described Dewair as "Marathon of Mewar" in his famous book "Anals and Antiquities of Rajputana"

A very beautiful victory Memorial on Maharana Pratap was inaugurated by H.E. President of India, Smt. Pratibh Devi Singh Patil on 10.01.2012.
