Begu was offered to the crown prince of Mewar Prince Chunda ji in 1430 AD. Chunda ji being the eldest son of Maharana Lakha ji, made the supreme sacrifice of abdicating the throne of Mewar in favour of his yet to be born step brother. Begu was one of the oldest fiefs and earned the highest revenue amongst all the fiefs in erstwhile Mewar. At one point Begu comprised of 500 revenue villages which included 04 paraganas (districts). Over a period of time its original boundaries were altered and some nobles branched out from it to form their own jagirs. Glimpses of the history of Begu are documented in the history section of the website
The present owner of the fort Rawat Sawai Hari Singh II opened the gates of the 15th century Fort Begu for tourists. It is now an exquisite heritage hotel.
The old fort of Begu dates back to the 15th century AD. During this long spell, it has witnessed numerous battles. The slot marks of cannon attacks on the four walls and bastions of the fort bear testimony to the heroic deeds of its rulers who put up a stiff resistance to invading Mughal and Maratha forces. Col. James Tod, the famous Scottish historian and political agent of the British Raj in India in the 19th century, wrote in his memorable historic work, Annals and Antiquities of Rajputana that "There is not a petty state in Rajputana that has not had its Thermopylae and scarcely a city that has not produced its Leonidas."
