Why Udaipur?

Being in Delhi on business trip, and having visited already Delhi and Agra, I started checking what other destinations nearby Delhi could be visited for spending a weekend. Between all the candidates, i finally chose Udaipur based on friends recommendations and as well cause there are direct flights from Delhi and you can reach Udaipur in around 2 hours.

What can be found in Udaipur?

Palaces, forts located in hilltops, serene lakes and tales of valour, make Udaipur a jewel among the cities of Rajasthan. Apart from this, the city has a large number of temples an havelis of various hues and in spite of it being on a desert area, there are many green parks and gardens. Not only as a tourist spot, it is also culturally rich it being a centre of crafts and performing arts. The city was once surrounded by a wall which is in ruins now and the old city is surrounded by the remains of the wall to the east of lake Pichola.
