Highlights of Udaipur
City Palace Udaipur
Known as the City of Lakes, Udaipur is the crown jewel of the Rajasthan state in India. It is hemmed in by lush green hills of Aravallis and surrounded by azure lakes making it the “Venice of the East.” The population in the metropolitan area is 608,426.
Aside from its stunning location, Udaipur has a rich cultural background and history. The city was founded as the new capital of Mewar Kingdom in 1553 by Maharana Undai Singh II. It became a thriving trading town in its early years. When the Mughal empire weakened, Udaipur remained the capital of the state and in 1818, became a princely state of British India.
Udaipur’s mesmerising temples and awe-inspiring architecture makes this charming city a must-visit destination in India. Certainly a dream destination for a romantic holiday. Situated on the banks of Pichola Lake, City Palace is a blend of European, Medieval, and Chinese styles of architecture. Along with spectacular courtyards, pavilions and hanging gardens. Built in 1559 by Maharana Udai Mirza Singh, the palace houses 11 other palaces. These were all constructed during various periods by different rulers. Another architectural marvel is Lake Palace situated on the island of Jag Niwas. Built in 1746 then converted into a luxury hotel, this symbol of tourism is a famous wedding destination.
In a place of grand heritage, going on a cultural trip in Udaipur is enriching, and museums play a big part in learning more about the city. A place dedicated to Rajasthan’s festivals, songs, folk art, and all things cultural, the Bhartiya Lok Kala Mandal Museum features artifacts from the region’s artistic growth. Likewise the Ahar Archaeological Museum highlights some of the oldest sculptures dating back to 1700 B.C.. Meanwhile for those who want to study the luxurious lifestyle of early India, a quick tour in Bagore ki Haveli gives insight on how royal families live in ancient times.
As a result of Rajasthan’s rich and multi-colored culture, you can see this reflected by the contemporary galleries in Udaipur. For example the celebrated artist Kamal Sharma took Udaipurian art a notch higher with abstract art creations and establishing a self-named art gallery. Also, Pristine Art Gallery exhibits artworks of some of the region’s esteemed contemporary artists.
Moreover Udaipur’s outdoor spaces are idyllic with magnificent palaces and scintillating lakes. Said to have served as an inspiration for the Taj Mahal, Jagmandir or Lake Garden Palace is a regal castle with a long history. Stroll around the flower garden or take a boat ride in Lake Pichola to indulge the scenic complex. Lastly, Udaipur’s Jagdish Temple is a spot not to miss. Built in 1651, this Indo-Aryan architectural marvel is the city’s largest temple with beautiful wall carvings. The shrine is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva, Ganesh, the Sun God, and Goddess Shakti. Stroll around the shopping complex after the temple visit to check out handicrafts for souvenirs.
