Udaipur - capital of the sun kings


The twin lake city of Udaipur was the capital of the sun kings of Rajputana. Complete with the hill top monsoon palace, Sajjangarh and nearby attractions of Chittorgarh and Kumbhalgarh to name a few, Udaipur is a leisurely 800 kilometers drive from Delhi and is packed with rich history of the Rajput era. It has many palaces some of which have been converted into luxurious hotels, a bustling lake side ambiance around lakes Pichola and Fateh Sagar and abundant natural beauty of the surrounding Aravali hills.

The drive from Delhi is quite pleasant and takes the better part of a day and it pays to take the detour via Bhilwara to escape the heavy Delhi Mumbai traffic. While Udaipur has enough attractions of its own, excursions to Chittorgarh and Kumbhalgarh are day long affairs in different directions with Udaipur located centrally. For the historically minded, it is advisable to cover the complete circuit to get the full picture of the famous Rajput era.
