Udaipur Tour in India



Udaipur is one of the most romantic cities in Rajasthan. Also known as the city of lakes the city; the marble palaces, beautifully laid out gardens and the lakes make Udaipur like an oasis in the desert.. The founder of Udaipur was Maharana Udai Singh, who shifted his capital from his old capital of Chittaurgarh to the banks of Lake Pichola to save the Rajput empire from the repeated attacks of the Mughal armies. Thus evolved the city Udaipur which was named after him. The major tourist places in Udaipur are:

CITY PALACE

The magnificent palace started by Maharana Udai Singh II and completed in a long time lag is the largest palace complex of Rajasthan. Built in glittering granite and marble it majestically towers high on the Pichola Lake. The main gates to the palace are 'Hathi Pol', 'Bara Pol' and Tripolia gate'. Many enclosures inside the palace offer good views of the city or the lake. The 'mahals' include the 'Barri Mahal' (Garden Palace) which has a garden and twin water tanks, Dilkhush Mahal (Palace of Joy) renowned for its frescoes, 'Moti Mahal' (Pearl palace) decorated with mirrors, 'Mor Chowk' (Peacock Courtyard) a visual delight in glass laid mosaics of peacocks which decorate its walls. The 'Chini Chitrasala' is remarkable for its blue and white ceramics, 'Manak Mahal' (Ruby Palace) with figures of porcelain and glass and 'Zenana Mahal' are some of them.

LAKE PICHOLA

Lake Pichola with breathtaking scenic beauty is surrounded by hills, embankments, bathing ghats, shrines and palaces. The lake was expended further by Maharana Udai Singh II after he founded the city. Nearly 5 kms in length and 3 kms in width, the magnificence of the lake is enhanced by beautiful Lake Palaces, Jag Niwas and the Jag Mandir. The cruises in the motor boat can be arranged for the lake as well as Jag Niwas Palace.

Jag Nivas palace was build in 1746 by Maharana Jagat Singh II as a summer residence of the rulers which is now converted to Lake Palace Hotel. The beautiful white-marble and granite building stands in the middle of the Pichola lake. The palace covers an area of 4 acres exemplifying the Mughal-Rajput architecture. Boats are available from the jetty and at the base of City Palace Museum.

The Jag Mandir Palace stands on an island at the southern end of the lake. A three storied building, built of yellow sandstone and marble slabs with a dome resembling a crown.
