City Palace

Old City, Udaipur, Rajasthan 313001, India

I spend full day with my mother and my friend there in city palace. It was built over a period of nearly 400 years. This beautiful palace is an example of the splendor that the rulers of Mewar enjoyed centuries ago .We reached to the city palace easily as it was on walking distance from our Rangniwas Palace Hotel.

It was magnificent palace situated at the bank of river pichola. I captured some beautiful pictures of corridors, rooms, vents, courtyards of this palace. After taking good shots we move towards palace museum. I was surprised to see the items of common man inside a palace with decoration. I think that was a display of Indian kitchen in the old days. Utensils were made of metal or clay. It was great experience to know about their culture and how royalty lived.

After this beautiful visit to the palace we took some rest and tried Rajasthani food. It was amazing Thali full with different type of curries served with rice and roti. Now it was time for another popular place in Udaipur Saheliyo ki Bari. This beautiful garden is famous for its lush green lawns, marble art and fountains. Finally I enjoyed camel ride and then we moved towards Kumbhalgard Fort.

Udaipur a place of Rajput era and scenic locations, a place which is on the top of so many tourists is really a place to visit, here I m posting some pictures of my Udaipur trip.
