“Venice of the East”, or more commonly known as Udaipur; is a city with rustic havelis and palaces overlooking serene lakes. The Udaipur City palace built beside the Lake Pichola is a must visit for any tourist. Jagmandir and the Lake Palace are two other attractions which are located on an island on Lake Pichola itself. A visit to these palaces made of black and white marbles, surrounded by lush gardens will surely transport you to the era of rajas and ranis. Another scenic lake to add to the list is the Fateh Sagar Lake nested between mountains. Its beauty can be truly appreciated by boating over its calm blue waters. Adventure enthusiasts should definitely try rafting and other water sports at Dhebar Lake over the Gomati river. It is also the second largest artificial lake in India.
Ahar museum is just the place for those with an interest in archaeology and historic artifacts. It has a rare collection of sculptures and pottery from 1700 B.C. Another popular destination is the Gulab Bagh and Zoo, home to a variety of rare species of flowers and numerous fruit trees. Blooming roses in assorted hues is truly a sight to behold. The zoo has many rare animals like Ostriches, Black Leopards, Hoolock Gibbons and Zebras.
