Udaipur Map

The city of Udaipur is perhaps of India's most seductive. Known as the City of Lakes or the Venice of the East, Udaipur is the historic capital of the Rajput kingdom of Mewar & is known for its splendid Rajput-era palaces. Its centrepiece is the attractive Lake Pichola & the wonderful Lake Palace that appears to float on the surface of the water. Famously used in the James Bond Octopussy film, the Lake Palace was originally built as a summer palace in 1743 & features floors inlaid with black & white marble & walls ornamented with different precious stones. Today the Lake Palace is a luxury hotel, voted as of the most romantic in India.
