Udaipur - City Palace

Udaipur - the Town and Lake Pichola

Udaipur - Lake Palace Hotel

 

Udaipur has long been one of the romantic places to visit, especially if staying in the world famous Lake Palace Hotel. The town itself is much like any other Indian tourist town and, unfortunately, when we got there we had seen so many Jain temples and Royal palaces that an eight hour walking tour was not what we most wanted.

Particularly as we had two nights at the Lake Palace Hotel with its quiet calm after the airport style security to board the small boat. In some ways, it could not and did not live up to our high expectations: living, perhaps, too much on past glories. Though a wedding anniversary dinner on the terrace looking over to the City Palace was well worth it (even if somewhat expensive!).
