In 1818 Mewar and other princely states of Northern India signed a treaty with the British, and Colonel James Tod became the first Political Agent to the Western Rajput States. Along with his official duties, Tod became very interested in the genealogies of the Rajput Kingdoms as well as the art and architecture they produced. Salumbar is located southeast of Udaipur and consists of a fort, a palace, a town and surrounding villages. The town is surrounded by a masonry wall and is protected by a range of hills to the north, the fort is located on top of one of these hills. The ruler of Salumbar is the head of the Chondawat family of the Sesodia Rajputs.
