Weekend Getaway Guide: Udaipur, India.
Slide Nr 6
The Place – The City Palace Museum, housed within the expansive City Palace bordering Lake Pichola, is the city’s most beloved, drawing visitors from far and wide. Inside are various Mahals, chowks, galleries and gardens where you’ll see carefully preserved collections of old weapons, paintings, artefacts, palanquins, ornamental tiles, beautiful mosaics, crystal ware and mirror work. In the evenings, a magnificent hour-long ‘Mewar Sound and Light Show’, recounting the glorious history of Mewar through 15 centuries, is held at Manek Chowk, Mardana Mahal. Narrated by Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar, the current custodian of the House of Mewar, it’s worth witnessing if you’re longing for a slice of something special.
