Udaipur is the City of Lakes! Tucked away in the heart of the forested Aravalli Hills, this regally romantic city has always stood out from Rajasthan’s other desert cities with its network of manmade lakes. The city was established in the 16th century by Udai Singh II, a ruler of the Mewar dynasty. Today’s royal lineage stretches back 26 generations, yet even with all its luxurious grandeur, Udaipur has a gentle and relaxing edge. The jewel of the city’s crown is sparkling Lake Pichola with the illusory floating Taj Lake Palace, which featured in the 1980s Bond movie, Octopussy.
