Tourists Attractions
Udaipur City Palace - The majestically huge white City Palace located in the heart of Udaipur and towering over the lake Pichola, was originally built by Maharana Udai Singh of the Sisodia Rajput clan. It was later extended to its present form by the subsequent Maharanas. Although a conglomerate of buildings were added later by different Maharanas, the Palace managed to retain its uniformity of design.

Built in granite and marble, and encircled by balconies, towers and crenellated fort walls, the largest palace complex in Rajasthan stands on a crest over looking the Pichola Lake. It is a heritage building, which showcases the finest elements of Rajput culture and their arts.The City palace of Udaipur offers stupendous views from the terrace over the water to the hills. It was built in seven phases around the mid-16th century.
Lake Palace, Udaipur
Lake Palace - Built by Maharana Jagat Singh II around 1628 to52 as a summer palace to escape the extreme heat of Rajasthan, the palace is indeed a reverie in pure white marble. Formerly called the Jag Mandir, the palace is an amazing confection of delicate columns, filigreed screens, cupolas and fountains. Now converted as a luxury hotel, it reflects the photogenic face of Udaipur.

Saheliyon ki Bari - The "garden of the maids of honour", Sahelion-ki-Bari was designed and laid out early in the eighteenth century as a retreat for ladies of the royal household to spend their time in comfort. The lotus pool, fountains, lawns, flowerbeds, and marble pavilions all combine to make it a captivating place.

Sajjangarh - Commanding the skyline of Udaipur is the "Monsoon Palace" of Sajjangarh. Abandoned by the royal family soon after its construction in 1880 due to the impossibility of pumping water to the palace, it offers an unrivalled view of the city's lakes, palaces and the surrounding countryside.
