Udaipur or the ‘City of Lakes’ as it is fondly known is the capital of the former kingdom of Mewar. It was established around 1567 A.D and is one of the oldest surviving dynasties in the world. The chequered history of Mewar is showcased in the city of Udaipur. The city is a fascinating tapestry of lakeside palaces, forts, temples; haveli’s and gardens that reflect the varied influences of the centuries.

Also referred to as the ‘Venice of the East’, Udaipur is located in the spectacular Aravalli ranges and set on the edge of three lakes, creating a wonderfully romantic atmosphere.

Amongst the many forts, temples and museums the city’s main attraction is undoubtedly the City Palace, which these days is part museum with its own superb collection of miniature paintings. The palace also offers superb views over the city. Udaipur has always delighted visitors with its glamorous setting and easy-going small-town atmosphere, the leafy winding streets are still full of little galleries and bookshops, perfect for an afternoon’s browsing and the perfect destination to relax and unwind for a couple of days.
