Padharo Mhare Desh
Rajasthan, formerly known as Rajputana or the Land of the Kings, is the perfect example of India’s grandeur and magnificence dating back to several centuries. Majestic palaces, white and golden-sand deserts, traditional crafts and authentic cuisine make Rajasthan an ideal choice for all kinds of travellers.
Every time we think of Rajasthan, then the very first destinations that catch up our fancy are Jaipur, Jodhpur or Udaipur. I describe one of the best Udaipur Rajasthan.
Udaipur Best Place for Travels
Udaipur is often called ‘Venice of the East’. It is also the ‘city of lakes’. The Lake Palace (Jag Niwas) located in the middle of Pichola Lake is the finest example of architectural and cultural marvel. The grand City Palace on the banks of the lake along with the Monsoon Palace (Sajjan Garh) on the hill above enhances the beauty of this magnificent city. Udaipur is also the center for performing arts, crafts and its famed miniature paintings. The Shilpgram festival is a great crowd-puller on New Year.
Maharana Udai Singh founded Udaipur in 1559 AD.According to alegend Udai Singh was guided by a holy man meditating on the hill near Pichola Lake to establish his capital on that very spot. Surrounded by Aravali Ranges, forests and lakes this place was less vulnerable to external invasion than Chittaurgarh. Maharana Udai Singh died in 1572 and was succeeded by Maharana Pratap who valiantly defended Udaipur from Mughal attacks.
