  about Udaipur

Udaipur is a lovely land around the turquoise water lakes, defined in by the lavish hills of the Aravalis. Situated in the southern part of Rajasthan, India, it is known for its enticing historical places. The white palaces, exquisitely laid out gardens and the lakes make Udaipur seem almost like a mirage in the desert. The founder of Udaipur was Maharana Udai Singh and the city was named Udaipur after his name.

The City Palace
Overlooking the aquamarine expanses of the lake Pichhola stands the splendid City Palace - a marvel in granite and marble. The three Mahals - Baari, Dilkush and Moti are known for its beautiful peacock mosaics; the shrine of Dhuni Mata and the museum of Rana Pratap are the highlights of this complex. Built in the early 18th century, City Palace is surrounded by beautifully constructed Jagdish Temple, which houses some imposing sculpted figures and heavily ornamented interiors and Sahelion-ki-Bari or the Garden of Maidens, which has four pools and delicately carved kiosks and elephants in marble.
