Udaipur Rajasthan


Tourist Boat Passing front of Lake Palace, UdaipurUdaipur is considered one of India's most romantic cities and once there you'll definitely agree. This city of lakes has also been called the 'Venice of the East' and in true oriental style it is redolent with luxurious palaces, majestic mansions and regal gardens. This desert oasis exudes a captivating charm and warmth that will make you want to linger on and stretch your stay as long as possible.


Past Perfect
Maharana Udai Singh II founded Udaipur in 1568 after his citadel Chittorgarh was sacked by Mughal Emperor Akbar. According to legend, Udai Singh was guided by a holy man meditating on the hill near Pichola Lake to establish his capital on this very spot. Resplendent with lakes and forests and protected by the surrounding Aravali Ranges, this area was less susceptible to danger than Chittorgarh had been, so the king did not hesitate and thus the new capital of Mewar, Udaipur was born. Maharana Udai Singh was succeeded by Maharana Pratap, a revered Rajput icon, famous for his fierce battles fought against the Moghuls at Haldighati. His successors also valiantly defended Udaipur from subsequent Mughal attacks. As history played out the kingdom of Mewar was attacked many times over by foreign forces until it came under the protection of the British rule.

The entry to the palace is from the Hati Pol, the Elephant gate followed by the Bari Pol or the Big gate, which brings you to the Tripolia, the Triple gate. According to custom, under this gate, the Mewar kings were weighed against gold and silver, which was then distributed amongst the poor. Balconies, cupolas and towers surmount the palace to give a wonderful view of the lake. Suraj Gokhada or the balcony of the sun was the Maharaja's place of choice from which to grant public audience. The Mor Chawk is the peacock square and gains its name from the vivid blue-green mosaic in glass of a peacock that decorates its walls. The older portions of the palace are now preserved as a museum, on display is a large and diverse array of artefacts.

Fateh Sagar Lake
Fateh Sagar Lake occupies a place of pride in the landscape of Udaipur. It is a man made lake.
