Udaipur Travel Guide

by our India expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryA beautiful lake-side city in Rajasthan, Udaipur is surrounded by the Aravalli hills and yet more lakes - there are five in total. With its beautiful surroundings and relatively temperate climate (European winter is probably the best time to visit) it is not surprising that it has been chosen by many rulers from the ancients to the Mughals and then the British, as a place to build a palace. The renowned marble ’Lake Palace’ is actually on an island and facing it on the shore is the elaborate City Palace complex (eleven, separately built by different rulers); the floodlit complex is a quite incredible scene at night. There are many equally outstanding temples of several religions with the largest and perhaps most beautiful being the Jagdish Hindu Temple within the City complex. The city hosts a number of traditional and modern festivals with one of the liveliest being the Spring celebration of Mewar held in the streets and on the water.
