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 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!

Saheliyon Ki Bari

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.

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!!
