Udaipur: The Most Romantic City in the World

Posted by

In 1829, Colonel James Tod of the East India Company was overwhelmed by the beauty and charm of Udaipur; and called it “The Most Romantic City in the World”. The City has lived upto its reputation over the past many centuries. And even till date, Udaipur, India remains one of the most popular tourist attraction as well as the romantic  and “Royal/Destination Wedding” venue.

Rao TS brings you a few select pics found in the web space:

Founded in 1559 by Udai Singh II the erstwhile ruler of the Mewar Kingdom , this historic city is known for luxurious royal palaces, castles, and forts. It is built around a number of interconnected beautiful artificial lakes, mainly the shimmering lake Pichhola.

Overlooking the lake is the monumental City Palace famed for its complex of fine palaces, courtyards, and lush gardens.
