The state of Rajasthan, India, has designated Udaipur as a megacity and external pot in the Udaipur quarter. It’s the executive headquarters of the Udaipur quarter. It’s the major capital of the area of Mewar in the former Rajputana Agency. It was innovated in 1559 by Udai Singh II of the Sisodia clan of Rajputs when he shifted his capital from the megacity of Chittorgarh to Udaipur after Chittorgarh was besieged by Akbar. It remained the capital megacity till 1818 when it came to a British kingly state, and thereafter the Mewar fiefdom came a part of Rajasthan when India gained independence in 1947.
- City Palace, Udaipur
Someone built a massive series of palaces on the east bank of Lake Pichola, starting from 1559. Its main entrance is through the triple-arched gate – the Tripolia, built in 1725. This gate leads to a series of courtyards, overlapping partitions, terraces, corridors and gardens. The palace now houses a museum with many antique articles, paintings, decorative furniture and utensils from the royal era.
Situated over an island in Lake Pichola, the Lake Palace was constructed to serve as a royal summer palace. Built of white marble, the palace is now a luxury 5 Star hotel, operating under the “Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces” banner.
