The lush green hills of the Aravallis that surround it, the tantalizing Lake Pichola, and a legendary heritage that still breathes in every nook and corner of the city, Udaipur is truly a romantic city. Founded by Maharaja Udai Singh in 1568 after the destruction of his citadel Chittorgarh by the Mughal emperor Akbar, Udaipur merged into free India after independence. Standing supreme to many of the architectural creations in other parts of the country, Udaipur is steadily turning into a hot tourist destination in India. You can also tour this majestic place with Udaipur Tours.
Misty ochre-shadowed hills and pale, intricate buildings encircle the mirror glass of Lake Pichola. At the centre of this mystical Lake is the celebrated Lake Palace that looks nothing less that a beautiful wedding cake with the icing of the imposing hills enveloping it. Not far from here lies the grand City Palace surmounted by balconies, towers and cupolas, soaring over the lake, and is the largest palace complex in Rajasthan. The three mahals - Baari, Dilkush and Moti, the Suraj Gokhada of the Sun Balcony, the Mor Chowk known for its beautiful peacock patterns; the shrine of Dhuni Mata and the Museum of Rana Pratap are the highlights of this complex.
The 11 gates of which only 5 remain now once surrounded the enthralling city of Udaipur. Majestic Chittorgarh, the mountain fortress of Kumbhalgarh, beautiful Jain temples of Ranakpur, Eklingji and Nathdwara and the cool retreat of Mount Abu are some of the destinations in and around Udaipur that can be visited on Udaipur Tours.
