|Udaipur, There is no place in
India which appeals more to the imagination of poets and painters,
travellers and writers, than Udaipur, the lovely lake side capital
of Mewar. The city's inherent romance and beauty, and its remarkable
past, bristling with episodes of heroism and splendour, continue
to enthrall the visitor. Udaipur, the City of Dawn, looms up
like a vision in white.Surrounded by hills and mountains, and
set on the edge of three lakes, which give on to a fertile plain,
it is bewitching in all its details - narrow streets lined by
vivid coloured stalls, gardens, temples and palaces - every
feature mirrored in the placid blue waters of lake Pichhola.
City Palace, Completely white and majestic, the City Palace
stands on a hill surrounded by crenellated walls. Its main entrance
is through the triple arched gate, the Tripolia, built in 1725.
The Suraj Gokhada, the Balcony of the Sun, where the Suryavanshi
Maharanas of Mewar, presented themselves in times of trouble
to the people to restore their confidence, is another fascinating
Jagdish Temple, Built in 1651 A.D., by Maharaja Jagat Singh
I, it is the largest and most splendid temple in Udaipur.
Pichhola Lake, The legendary lake that entranced Maharana
Udai Singh, it is surrounded by hill palaces, temples, bathing
ghats and embankments.
