The Jhuala of the erstwhile Maharani of Udaipur! Can you spot a colour that is not present in this frame?
One of the many beautiful spots at the City Palace, Udaipur. This palace is the second largest palace in India. Seen here is the private den of the queen where she can spend some peaceful moments with the Maharana, while sitting on an ornate Jhula. So ornate and regal.
This ornate door is at the bedroom of Maharana, known popularly as the “Sheesh-Mahal”
I realize that so far you have only seen the interiors of the City Palace. So here is how the outer facade of the magnificent City Palace looks like! I hope you love the effect!
Grandeur of The Udaipur City Palace deserves few more pictures. Seen here is the section of palace where the Maharani and other ranis stayed
Ornate water fountain made with Rajasthani pure marble is right outside the Maharana’s current royal residence.

The facade of monsoon palace as seen through the entrance gate!
This is the entrance to Monsoon Palace, the leisure home of royalty in Udaipur! Preserved till date in its original form and man how sturdy! I couldn’t even move the chain, let alone dare attempt to push the door!
The greatest OAK was once a little bit who held his ground
Saheliyon Ki Bari
Go here to see: History, Garden, Heritage Fountains, Park
Saheliyon ki Baari in Udaipur is where the Royality once strolled for leisure. These famous heritage water fountains date back to the 16th century and are supported by smart elevation making the fountain work without a motor. Having seen the magnificence of the city Palace, I frankly expected this spot to be little more elaborate. We planned to spend about an hour here, but we were done in 30 mins.
Go here to see: Manmade lake, Boating, Resorts, Sunset
It’s not for nothing that this lake is world famous for its scenic beauty and surroundings.
Doodh Talai Lake
Go here to see: History, Garden, Musical fountain, Rock Garden
Beautiful small pond in the city center. Take atleast a few minutes to admire this enroute to Lake Pichola, if you are in a rush
Don’t listen to what I say, go see them!!
