City Palace, Udaipur

September 26, 2013

The City Palace on the edge of Lake Picholo in Udaipur looks across at the Lake Palace Hotel where we stayed. There are several palaces in this complex, with some of the most beautiful architecture, murals and art I’ve ever seen. A guide is necessary to understand the history. It was built in 1559, a flamboyant mix of  Mughal and Rajasthani architectural styles. It and the Lake Palace Hotel are still owned by the family, and I was privileged to be invited to a small cocktail party with the current Maharana of Mewar and his son and daughter in their private palace .
