Probably the most iconic structures of Udaipur, the glorious City Palace stands magnificently with its reflection blending in with the glistening waves of Lake Pichola making this your Number 1 place to visit.
Nestled at the heart of Udaipur and surrounded by the Aravalli hills with the City Palace being reflected on the lake, the Pichola lake is a must to visit, especially at dusk when it literally turns into a golden hour on steroids.
One of the best architectural wonders of the Mewar dynasty, the Jagdish Temple showcases classic Indo-Aryan architecture and was built keeping the rules of Vastushastra, the Hindu architectural science in mind.
Also known as the Garden of the Maidens, the Saheliyon ki Bari is a beautiful garden in the dry land of Udaipur.
According to history, in 1888, the first lake got washed away due to floods. This was the time when Maharana Fateh Singh came to the rescue and constructed a dam which is now known as the Connaught Bund. The 800-meter-long dam was built on the eastern side of the lake.
