"The city of Lakes"

Udaipur Tourism

Awarded the best tourist destination award in 2010, Udaipur is known as one of the most romantic cities of India and at times referred to as the 'Kashmir of Rajasthan'.

Located in a valley and surrounded by 4 lakes, Udaipur has natural offerings with a grandeur multiplied by human effort, to make it one of the most enchanting and memorable tourist destinations. It justifies all names ever offered to its charm from 'Jewel of Mewar' to 'Venice of the East'. Apart from Lakes, this beautiful historical city adorns itself with forts, palaces, temples and hills. And though the entire city's architecture is flattering, the Lake palace hotel is something that offers the city a visual definition. The revered Nathdwara temple is about 60 km from Udaipur.

The City Of Lakes

Known as the 'City of Lakes', Udaipur captures the essence of nature in its most vivid form. The lakes along with the palaces and forts together make a perfect combination of all travellers. With more than 10 lakes in the city, all connected to each other, Lake Pichola remains the number one attraction, closely followed by Udai Sagar Lake. In the proximity of Lake Pichola, lies the infamous Bagore Haveli which wows the tourists with its impeccable glass work. On the banks of the lake lies the architectural wonder, the City Palace of Udaipur.

Udaipur is where much of Rajasthan's grandeur resides, traces of which can be seen in the rich cuisine available here. One can just not miss out the famous Dal Bati Choorma or Gatte ki Subzi. Also, do try out the famous Dalkachori, Mirchi kachori, Kachori Chaat and other kinds of kachoris from the streets, forming a popular element of Udaipur's Cuisine. Order a Rajasthani Thali, which has all the best local items to relish in the area from Dals, Roti, vegetables to delicious sweets.

Questions about Udaipur

By Rohit Shroff

I'm based in Delhi and really wish to take a break all by myself. How is Udaipur in that way?

For a solo travel break, Udaipur is perfect in a lot of ways. Firstly, the existence of a Zostel makes it easy for a backpack traveler as it is cheap, and you also get to meet a lot of fellow travellers. Secondly, Udaipur is a very friendly city. So you can chat to the locals, gorge on some amazing local food, and spend a lot of your time by the Pichola Lake reading a good book or listening to some music.
