Maharana Bhagwat Singh Mewar of Udaipur expressed an earnest desire to establish a research institute to undertake research in literature, heritage, art and history of Mewar. This cherished goal has been realized with the high spirits and tradition of his predecessors, at the behest of Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar of Udaipur, Chairman, Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation. In 1985 CE, Maharana Mewar Research Institute was established and Shriji donated the historical collection to the institute. The institute has largest collections of manuscripts. This rich collection covers several languages and scripts such as Sanskrit, Hindi, local and other regional languages. This is a significant store house of information and resource for research scholars and academicians and some have even accessed these archives as prime material for their research work.

Every day of Maharana’s ruling period is mentioned in this daily diary with time - table along with his travels, meeting with dignitaries, routine and traditions followed on various festivals.

These relevant historical maps narrating the historical development of the palace form are used to outline the major phases for the evolution of the City Palace. A few maps recording the changes made in the palace during the last century have been useful in revealing the history of repair and alteration up to the present day.
