Udaipur is a city as romantic as a dream, with marble palaces gently afloat in a lake surrounded by low lying hills and other impressive palaces dominating the skyline with their many turrets and cupolas, imposing doorways and delicately chiselled windows.
  The lake here was artificially created in the 14th century, two hundred years before the city was founded by the Maharanas of Chittorgarh as the capital of the indomitable Mewar. A bastion wall encircles it. There were five gates armed withiron spikes and the largest palace in Rajasthan, the City Palace, stands on the ridge, overlooking the steel blue waters of the Lake Pichola.

  If the City Palace is imperial with its multicoloured mosaics, mirror work inlaid tiles and roof gardens on the lake are no less than sumptuous. Courts, fountains, apartments and gardens embellish them and decorated with arabesques of coloured stones, they are startling pleasure palaces, a rich experience that can now be captured as they have been converted into modern resorts.

 

  Image a26.jpg Jag Niwas, the Lake Palace, is the most prominent of these and rivals one of the most luxurious apartments in the world.
Laxmi Niwas and Shiv Niwas are smaller palaces, but exquisite in detail and idyllically located.

 

  Close to the pleasure palace hotels is Sahelion ki Bari, garden for companions while Udaipur's other attractions include excursions to nearby Rajsamand Lake, Jaisamand Lake, the Eklingji, the famous township of Nathwara and further the most beautiful Jain temples of Ranakpur. Stay at the Sriniwas Lake Palace and let Krishna Air Services show you a way of life you never knew.
