NORTH INDIA DESTINATIONS : UDAIPUR



North India Destinations

Udaipur
Udaipur, the city of the Suryavansi Rajputs, hidden amongst the hills that encompass the great Pichola Lake -- has been called the 'Venice of the East'. Indeed with it's enchanting palaces surrounded by mirror-like lakes, undulating hills and colourful bazaars, Udaipur looks as though it has been lifted straight from the pages of an Arabian Night's fairy tale book. The hills, the lakes and the altitude give Udaipur an extremely agreeable climate. Probably no other city in Rajasthan is quite as romantic as Udaipur. A visit to Udaipur is a must for travellers who want to experience the unique and vibrant history of Rajasthan

Udaipur, the capital of Mewar, was founded by Maharana Udai Singh after the fall and final sacking of Chittorgarh by the Mughal forces of Emperor Akbar in 1568. Legend has it that Udai Singh found the site of his new city some years before the final assault on Chittor and had formed an artificial lake named Udai Sagar in honour of himself. He later came upon a pond said to have been constructed by a banjara (gypsy) who raised a dyke across a mountain stream, damming up its waters. Udai Singh extended this pond and raised the height of the dam, creating the most beautiful of man-made lakes, named Pichola after the neighbouring village of Picholi. With the blessings of a holy sage of the region, he built his palace upon an overlooking ridge, on the banks of this lake.
