Delicate, feminine and elegant, Udaipur is known by many names – City of Sunrise, Jewel of Mewar and City of Lakes.
Undoubtedly one of India’s most romantic cities, it nestles between the glassy waters of its famous lakes and the ancient Aravelli Hills. Although it is one of Rajasthan’s largest cities, modern Udaipur manages to retain a charming small town vibe.
At the heart of Udaipur lies the serene Lake Pichola, with the old city sprawled along its east bank. Built along a series of gentle hills, the winding streets, full of abrupt twists and turns, are dominated by the immense City Palace.
- Udaipur is home to the beautiful Lake Palace on Lake Pichola, with its dazzling architecture, it seems to float serenely above the surface of the water on its own island.
- Sahelion-ki-Bari, also known as the Garden of the Maids, is the site of Udaipur’s most striking fountain, which is surrounded by elephant statues, courtyards and formal gardens.
- Deep within the old city is the Jagdish Temple, whose towering walls and spires are covered with carvings of elaborate scenes and dancing nymphs
