Udaipur Travel Guide

History
Udaipur is known as the city of lakes and is also one of the most romantic cities in Rajasthan. Udaipur, the city of dawn was founded in 1559 AD by Maharana Udai Singh. It is a lovely land around the azure water lakes with a fascinating blend of sights, sounds and experiences. Its kaleidoscope of splendid palaces, lakes, temples, gardens and narrow lanes carry the flavor of a heroic past epitomizing valor and chivalry.


Places of interest

Explore the majestic architectural marvel that houses many courtyards, pavilions, terraces, corridors, rooms and hanging gardens. The main entrance is through the triple arched gate with eight marble porticos. The 'Mor Chowk' reputed for its exquisite peacock mosaics in glass and the 'Chini Chitrashala' noted for its blue and white ceramics are other attraction in the palace.

Fateh Sagar : Fateh sagar is a man-made lake built by Maharana Jai Singh in 1678 to the north of Lake Pichola.
