Thakur Ghanshyam Singh Krishnawat has two sons, Veeramdev Singh Krishnawat and Yaduraj Singh Krishnawat, who take care of Chunda Palace now.

Why the name ‘Chunda’ Palace?

Rawat Chunda was the eldest son and the obvious successor of Maharana Lakha of Mewar. Rawat Chunda, however, handed over the throne of Mewar to his younger brother Maharana Mokal but he continued to serve the house of Mewar. Rawat Chunda’s clan is also the ancestral clan of Thakur Ghanshyam Singh Krishnawat.
