Lake Pichola and City Palace, Udaipur, North India

Udaipur

Picturesque and elegant, Udaipur is known by many names, including “the 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 the city lies the serene Lake Pichola, with the Old City sprawled along its east bank. Built along a series of gentle hills, narrow winding streets, full of abrupt twists and turns, give way to spectacular marble palaces, hibiscus-laden gardens, sparkling fountains and pavilions. This dreamy destination has inspired many an artist and literary enthusiast.
