The 'city of lakes’ is perhaps the most romantic and beautiful cities of India.

It was founded by Maharaja Udai Singh in 1559 AD on the shores of Lake Pichola. The most striking landmarks of the city are City palace and Lake Palace. It developed scientifically; the old city was surrounded by fortified bastions with entry through 11 gates. Ruins of these fortifications are still there, and the more recent palaces can be visited. In fact, a number of the former royal homes are now excellent hotels, allowing you a glimpse into Rajasthan's princely life with all its attendant splendors.

Udaipur stands out for its heritage, crafts and performing arts and its school of miniature painting is noteworthy.
