Udaipur

Set in the heart of the Girwa Valley amongst the Aravalli Hills of south Rajasthan, Udaipur is a beautiful city and generally regarded as the most romantic in India. With its white marble palaces, languid deep blue lakes and well-tended gardens, relaxed Udaipur is very different both culturally and climatically from the neighbouring desert cities. Founded by Maharana Udai Singh in 1559, the lake-side palaces and atmospheric havelis homes that teeter over the water’s edge appear to have changed little over the centuries. Visit the City Palace, an imposing complex still owned by the Maharaja of Udaipur, then explore the old town visiting Jagdish Mandir Temple and local artist’s workshops. For a different perspective on the city a sunset cruise on serene Lake Pichola is a must. We have over 25 years’ experience planning tailor-made holidays and tours to India.
