The 'city of lakes’ is perhaps the most romantic and beautiful cities of India. In contrast to Its desert neighborhoods it stands out with an enchanting image of white marble palaces, placid blue lakes, gardens and temples surrounded by hills and mountains. 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 is known for its fairytale palaces that nestle along the banks of a lake, or completely cover islands in its midst. The Sisodia rulers of Chittaurgarh who ruled here obviously had more leisure to exercise their taste than at Chittaur where much of their time was spent at war. It situated on the edge of three lakes, its narrow streets lined with shops and craftsmen's ateliers encourage hours of window- shipping for tourists. Udaipur stands out for its heritage, crafts and performing arts and its school of miniature painting is noteworthy.
