Udaipur and the City Palace

The city palace built on the eastern shore of Pichola lake; not a single palace, but a complex of buildings composed of many palaces. One can find both Rajastani style and Babur style in its architectural design. It is a group of buildings also influenced by the architectural styles of Europe, Middle Age, and China. We are again back in the 16th century: Having defeated by the Babur Emperor Ekber, Maharana Uday Sing ordered the construction of a city that will immortalize his name here, following the advice of a hermit he met while hunting. The Kingdom of Mewar that previously inhabited other regions such as Nagda and Chittor is a dynasty like other groups in the Rajastan region which are ruled by Maharanas and Maharajas. The names of these regions which are now a part of independent India occur in the projects that aim to protect cultural heritage. After a long visit to the Palace a walk around the lake nearby the castle will ease your mind.
