Experience the Saga of Royalty with Udaipur Travel
If the splendour of the royal era still enthralls you, you can plan a trip to Udaipur to experience the regal legacy like I did.
I had always wished to see myself amidst the forts and palaces and my wish got fulfilled when my friend, Sambhav planned a trip to Udaipur. Fortunately, he considered me as his companion and that too, it was a weekend programme. What else could I ask for?
We both reached there by a train, which took a little longer that day. After taking rest in a good hotel, we went to explore the city. I was too curious to visit Saheliyon ki Bari as I had already heard a lot about the place. It was full of fountains and created a spectacular sight of those times. On being visited the city, Sambhav exclaimed to see the beautiful Lake Pichola. Then we realized that it is aptly known as the City of Lakes.
After a quick lunch at the hotel, we reached City Palace. A guide accompanied us for taking us through that magnificent palace. Inside the Palace, there is a museum where you can spend hours appreciating the beautiful miniature paintings.
Several Mahals like Manak Mahal and Zeena Mahal speak volume about the Rajput style of architecture. Next, we embarked on a ride on the Fateh Sagar Lake and then moved towards the Nehru Garden. The ride was too short that we reached the garden only in 5 minutes.
We enjoyed Dal Bati and Pyaaz Kachori at the restaurants of Udaipur. The eatables that we had, were filling enough that we had a light dinner after that.
To make our tour even more interesting and memorable, we also clicked some photographs of the places we visited. Bhartiya Lok Kala Mandir, the museum in Udaipur has a rare collection of paintings, ornaments, puppets, masks and folk musical instruments.
The weekend that we spent in Udaipur was truly a refreshing break that energized me.
