Romantic Udaipur is the Venice of the East
Often described as the ‘Venice of the East’, Udaipur is a romantic city that is dotted with lakes and surrounded by the Aravali Hills. As you travel through Rajasthan it makes for an atmospheric and relaxing stop.
The City Palace is a monument to Rajasthani Mughal architecture and the ultimate expression of it. With rooms full of antiquities and paintings, silver and inlay work, the intricate arts mirror the intricate intertwining of the 11 palaces that make up this vast complex.
The iconic Lake Palace appears to float on Lake Pichola and is the perfect spot to spend a little time. Let us arrange a private dinner on a pontoon overlooking the lake for you. You can enjoy a motor cruise round the splendid lake after.
Step back onto dry land with a stroll through the Saheliyon-ki-Bari Gardens full of marble art and fountains. The Jagdish Temple is not to be missed. Its eclectic mix of stone elephant, carved pillars, impressive spires and exuberant architecture really express a vibrancy that can be missing from other places of worship.
If you wish to get a real feel for the culture we can arrange a cooking demonstration, followed by dinner with a Rajasthani family, for you to experience.
After all, you don’t really know a city until you have broken naan with its citizens...
