Udaipur - A Romantic City of Lakes and Palaces

As a part of “A SNAPSHOT” blog series, we take the readers on a quick exploration of an Indian city that has earned a unique sobriquet. So here we are with our post on the “City of Lakes”- Udaipur.

Let’s have a quick look at the highlights:

Situated where?

State of Rajasthan

Why is it called so?

Udaipur has an edenic setting with picturesque lakes gracing it. There are as many as five prominent lakes and other less famous ones but no less in beauty. So, lakes being the most striking feature of this city have given Udaipur the tagline “City of Lakes”.


Why to go here?

Udaipur is one of the top honeymoon destinations in India and not only for honeymoon, people come here to ease themselves out because there are lot many destinations for sightseeing - palaces, forts, lakes, temples and what not.
  • City Palace: Famous for extensive art gallery, palatial courtyards, splendid hanging gardens, City Palace offers a sneak peek into the lives of Sisodia Rajput clan.
  • Jag Mandir Island Palace: Built in between a lake, this palace was actually the inspiration behind the Mughal architectural marvel- The Taj Mahal
  • Jagdish Temple: Sculptures of this temple speak highly of the architectural finesse of Rajputana.  
  • Other ‘not-to-miss’ attractions are Sahelion Ki Bari, Shilpgram (craftsmen’s village)

One unique thing to do in Udaipur...?

This obviously has to be a cruise on Lake Pichola. It is undoubtedly the best lake of Udaipur and a sunset view or sunrise view while sailing on a boat will be the nicest thing you will ever see.  Enjoy your journey at Udaipur during India tours.
