Sprawling over an area of around 37 sq kms, Udaipur is completely dissimilar to other barren places of Rajasthan.

The beauty of the city that is reflected in its every nook and corner has earned it the sobriquet of the 'City of Dawn.' Its historical significance is amply understood by the fact that it was declared the capital of the Mewar kingdom (Sisodia dynasty) immediately after it was founded by Maharana Udai Singh in 1559 AD.

Today, notwithstanding the interests of the tourists, Udaipur is loved by one and all. The attractions within the city ensure that the guests do not go back disappointed. The enchanting surroundings leave the visitors completely spellbound.

Today, the Lake Palace has been converted into a heritage hotel as such enjoying its beauty has become all the more easier for the tourists.
