India is a land with so much history that almost every state has some significant historical attachment to it. In this set up, Rajasthan stands apart as having more history crammed in its environs than in most other places in the country. And within Rajasthan, the city that truly shines for its historical and symbolic significance is none other than the beautiful Udaipur – which is considered one of the most romantic cities in India.
Separated from the harsh Thar desert by the gentle slopes of the Aravalli’s and surrounded by several lakes, Udaipur feels like a kingdom in its own right that time forgot. Situated within the city is the massive and imposing Udaipur City Palace, a destination with so many places to sightsee, that it is pretty much a whole day's worth of activity in itself. The city, which is one of India’s leaders in quality handicrafts and spices, also has numerous lakes and gardens you can explore!
Situated at an almost equal distance from both, Delhi and Mumbai and well serviced by ports in Gujarat, Udaipur has all the makings of a brilliant town with excellent connectivity, ensuring that it is at most an overnight trip even from India’s largest metropolises. For those thinking about visiting the city here are the different ways of how to reach Udaipur.
