Nestled in the elevated hills of Aravalli, the beautiful city of Udaipur is perhaps one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Rajasthan. The picturesque lakes paint a perfect backdrop to this former Mewar capital and have earned it the sobriquet City of Lakes. The origin of Udaipur is attributed to Maharana Udai Singh, who founded this royal city in 1559 and lend it his name. Over the time, this heritage land witnessed many blood baths, including the historic battle of Haldighati (1576) that was fought against the Mughals by Maharana Pratap, a revered Rajput icon. It was only after the rulers signed a treaty with the British in the 19th century that the city settled for a truce. The audacious history of the Rajputana era is reflected in the exquisite palaces and monuments dotted across the region. Once a land of valour and victory, Udaipur has now transformed into one of the world's most romantic getaways that allures tourists with its natural vista.
Attractions in Udaipur
Towering over the enchanting Lake Pichola, the City Palace is undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful palatial monuments in India. Within this palace complex are many exotic architectural marvels, including Amar Vilas, Mor Chowk and Badi Mahal.
A fine example of Indo-Aryan architecture, Jagdish Temple is located north of the City Palace. It is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is adorned with his carvings, other than works depicting scenes from Lord Krishna's life and nymph figurines.
As the name suggests, Sahelion-ki-Bari was laden by Maharana Bhopal Singh for his wife and the 48 young maidens who accompanied her after marriage. The garden is still in its full bloom, with fountains, kiosks and lotus pool.
Lake Pichola is an artificial freshwater lake, created in 1362, which is famous for several islands developed on it over the years. A world-famous site, the Lake Palace, is located in the middle of this picturesque waterfront only.
Monsoon Palace, a palatial hilltop residence, offers beautiful panoramic views of lakes and edifices that paint the landscape of Udaipur. The place was earlier known as Sajjan Garh Palace, after Maharana Sajjan Singh of Mewar dynasty.
Built within the Fateh Prakash Palace, Durbar Hall – inaugurated by Lord Minto in 1909 – is known for its opulent interiors characterised by huge chandeliers, royal artefacts, legendary armoury and portraits of Maharajas.
