Udaipur


Brief
The city of Dawn, Udaipur is an enchanting city. Also known as The Venice of the East, it is a vision in white, drenched in romance and beauty. From the azure water lakes in the midst of sandy terrain, hemmed in by the lush hills of the Aravalis, Udaipur is a fascinating blend of sights, sounds and experience. An inspiration for the imagination of poets, painters and writers, it is a kaleidoscope of fairy-tale palaces, lakes, temples, gardens and narrow lanes strewn with stalls, carrying the flavour of a heroic past, epitomising valour and chivalry. Their reflection in the placid waters of the Lake Pichhola, is an enticing sight.

History

Fateh Prakash palace, UdaipurThe jewel of Mewar, Udaipur was ruled by the Sisodia dynasty. The foundation of the city, was laid by Maharana Udai Singh in 1559 AD. The legendary Ranas of Mewar, who traced their ancestry back to the Sun, first ruled the region from their 7th century stronghold - Chittaurgarh. In contrast to the house of Jaipur, the rulers of Udaipur prided themselves on being independent. Yet, Udaipur for all its individuality, remained one of the poorer princely states in Rajasthan, a consequence of being almost constantly at war. Ultimately in 1818, Mewar came under British political control, but still managed to avoid almost all British cultural influence.

Culture
Founded in 1568 following the final sacking of Chittorgarh by the Mughal emperor Akbar, Udaipur rivals, any of the world famous creations of the Mughals, with its Rajput love of the whimsical, and its superbly crafted elegance. Overlooking the aquamarine expanses of the Lake Pichhola, stands the splendid Lake Palace. A marvel in granite and marble, it is certainly the best example of its cultural explosion, but Udaipur is full of palaces, temples and havelis, ranging from the modest to the extravagant. Its also proud of its heritage as a centre for the performing arts, paintings and crafts.

Climate & Geogaphical Location
Udaipur is very hot and dry in summer and extremely cold in winter. It is surrounded by the Aravalli mountain ranges, at an altitude of 577 metres.India Holidays
