Udaipur was also founded on a spot where a hermit was meditating, but this time, the hermit blessed the prince Rama Udai Singh II – this is the year 1559 – and told him that this would be an auspicious spot to build a new city. Surrounded by hills, and on the shores of the lake Pichola, Udaipur is truly magical. Here we see the Lake Palace on the left – of James Bond fame : Octopussy, with Roger Moore, was filmed here – and the City Palace on the right.
This is another view of the Lake Palace from inside the City Palace, this time.
I loved how the sun played with the sheer colorful fabrics of the women’s saris. This is a window of the City Palace overlooking one of the gorgeously decorated courtyards, as seen in the picture below.
Here I’m, below, with my little one, exploring the streets of Udaipur.
