The village is located on the foothills of the Arawali ranges. Madhogarh is a small village famous for its old havelis and the fort of Tunga is located in the village. This is a typical Rajasthani village where you can have elating sight of potters, carpenters and cobblers pursuing their trade in the ancient ways peculiar to the region.

After an early breakfast GeTS Holidays will drive you to Samode and arrange your stay at the Samode Palace, now a heritage hotel. During the day a camel ride through the Samode village and the surrounding countryside is suggested. Riding this supercilious looking animal with its rocking gait is the best way of relaxing on a sunny morning. Half an hour's walk up steep stone steps leads to the old fort of Sheograrh. This is where the inhabitants of Samode barricaded themselves in times of war. It is an austere building built on traditional lines. We suggest a walk around the now tranquil battlements to the sound of cooing pigeons and doves. Three kilometres away, iridescent with flowering bushes, fruit trees and lush green lawns, is Samode Bagh, a walled garden that once served as the recreation grounds for Samode Palace. It is an oasis set amidst the dry rugged expanse of an ochre desert. You will relish your lunch at Samode Bagh.
