UDAIPUR TOUR

UDAIPUR :

Founded in 16th century, Udaipur is one of the most romantic places in India, where you can see clear blue lakes, which very gently whisper the mood of a bygone era. Prime attractions include: City Palace, Lake Palace, Sahelion Ki Bari, Pratap Memorial and Jagdish Temples. 

City Palace :

Standing on the east bank of lake Pichola, is a massive series of palaces built at different times from 1559 A.D. The balconies of the palace provide panoramic views of “Jag Niwas” (the world wide famous Lake palace hotel), Jag Mandir on one side and on the other the city of Udaipur. Its main entrance is through the triple-arched gate – the Tripolia, built in 1725. The way now leads to a series of courtyards, overlapping parations, terraces, corridors and gardens – a harmonic profusion hard to describe. There is a Suraj Gokhda, where the maharanas of Mewar presented themselves in the times of trouble to the people to restore confidence. 

Lake Palace :

 

Originally known as the Jag Niwas, took three years to build and was inaugurated in 1746. Nothing but marble is used in the composition of this palace. It is now a luxury hotel.
