EXPLORING THE CITY OF LAKE – UDAIPUR

We have explored Banswara and Mount Abu now let’s go and explore the city of Lake, Udaipur.

Udaipur is situated 265 km from Ahmedabad and 180 km from Mount Abu. Udaipur, known as the city of lakes, has many lakes located in the middle of the city. Due to its proximity to the state of Gujarat, a large number of indigenous tourists from Gujarat and Maharashtra come here for tourism, whereas in Udaipur, foreign tourists also come here, after Jaipur, Udaipur has the highest number of foreign tourists. Rana Udai Singh established the city of Udaipur in 1559 AD and made it the new capital of Mewar.

City Palace, an excellent example of architecture, was built by Maharana Udai Singh on the banks of Pichola Lake. This palace has also been the residence of the royal family for 23 generations. The City Palace has two parts, the Mardana Mahal and the Zenana Mahal.

Udaipur is the city of lakes. While the boat ride on Lake Pichola here gives a feeling of joy in the morning, in the evening this lake surrounded by mountains and palaces fills with thrill. Apart from Pichola, Fateh Sagar is the second biggest lake of Udaipur. This lake was constructed by Maharaja Jai Singh in 1678.
