    The 'mina work' on walls
    On our stay at Udaipur for a documentary on Gender Studies, we decided to make the most of it! Rajasthan is so full of rich architecture, it's actually difficult to cover the entire stretch of it. So we decided on concentrating on Udaipur and bagan with City Palace.
  • City Palace
    City Palace
    With Google Maps to our rescue and an enormous faith on information collected from the localites, we started off with City Palace. Built by the joint efforts of the Mewar Dynasty, this elaborate structure stands talk in Udaipur. What a beginning to our Udaipur tour!
  • Taj Lake Palace

    The sudden encounter of a jalsa
    We poor students really weren't capable of affording a luxurious suit at Taj Lake Palace, but luckily we had a conference there. On reaching the marvellous palace of Maharaja Jagat Singh II we saw this beautiful Jalsa! The palace turned hotel boasts of all kinds of luxury!
  • Lake Pichola
    Lake Pichola
    Just a few minutes of boat ride and we were in a Ghat from where the entire Lake Pichhola was vivid.Our HOD told us that Udaipur is known as the city of lakes for this very lake!It's truely a fairyland in the evenings! The lake was cut short by beautiful arches and architecture.
  • jag Mandir
    jag Mandir
    We discovered the fact that these palaces/hotels in Lake Pichhola were built on tiny islands. Our conception that Rajasthan is a dry and arid land devoid of any beauty was shattered right there in Udaipur! This one's also called 'Lake Garden Palace'! As pretty as the others!
  • Monsoon Palace, Sajjan Garh
    Monsoon Palace, Sajjan Garh
    The next afternoon we took an auto to Sajjan Garh or the Monsoon palace. This was the highest point in Udaipur and the sunset looked nothing less than a Bollywood movie with the dimming skyline. As the twinkling lights started emerging out, the city looked like a Diwali night!
  • Garden Hotel

    Antique cars
    We went to the Garden Hotel in search of a wholesome Rajasthani Thali, what we came across was a mesmerizing museum which showcased the vintage cars of the Maharana! From old school Mercedes to Rolls-Royce - it was a treat for our eyes and instagram feeds! We went bonkers!
  • Udaipur
    Udaipur
    Riot of spices
    That Thali which was long due was served piping hot and it smelled like a blend of thousand aromatic spices at one go! The bowl of cold curd with bundi was a welcoming treat in the summer heat! The kadhi, gattey ki sabzi, dal bati churma, masala papad, were delish! Scrumptious!
  • Saheliyon Ki Bari
    Saheliyon Ki Bari
    The next morning we took a cab to this beautiful garden by the name of 'Saheliyon ki Bari' which was built by Rana Sangram Singh II at the banks of Fateh Sagar Lake. Right when we entered, we thought of visiting the museum first but were bored of the petty stuffed cobras.

    Aesthetically beautiful
    On entering the garden that was built for the 48 women that he received in dowry, we were truely mesmerized! A beautiful marriage of Indian and British architecture! The garden was a picture of marble fountains and lotus lakes! So pretty! There were birds everywhere!

    Rajasthani dance
    After spending the early bit of the morning in an ethereal garden, it was time for some 'naach gaana' and folk culture. For that we headed to 'Shilp Gram' which was every bit Rajasthani in it's essence! The first thing I did was groove along with the pretty dance troups!

    The puppet show
    After almost tripping off from a camel back, and coming back to life from the dead, we went for a puppet show. Till now, I had only seen these rag dolls in action in Bollywood movies, but this was absolutely amazing! The synchronization, the folklore, the instrumentals...lovely!
  • Fateh Prakash Palace
    Fateh Prakash Palace
    The room with crystal collection
    We came back to Lake Pichola to visit the crystal hall of Fateh Prakash Palace. The beautiful Palace turned hotel was so well decked. The hall of crystals showcased a rare collection. We even wanted to see the hotel rooms and they looked pretty cozy. Lake Pichola was so pretty!
  • Fateh Sagar Lake
    Fateh Sagar Lake
    A sunset ride at the Fateh Sagar Lake is something one shouldn't be missing when in Udaipur. The chirping of the birds and the slowly illuminating palace turned hotel make you feel like a princess! Udaipur was like a Labyrinth of Royalty! We loved, breathed and bask in it's Aura!
  • Bagore Ki Haveli Museum
    Bagore Ki Haveli Museum
    The filigree work
    Situated on the waterfront of Lake Pichola by the Gangori ghat this haveli looked like a typical jalsaghar from one of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's movie! The sunrays made the filigree turn red and the shadows cast on the marble floors were beyond beautiful! They were otherworldly!
  • Ekling Ji Temple
    Ekling Ji Temple
    The eklingji temple had a massive shiv lingam which was the 'kul devta' of all the Rana's and Maharajas. The Serene atmosphere and the beautiful architecture was of unparallel beauty!
