Udaipur is a very alive city, with shades of cultural, historical and industrial type. Life here starts with simplicity and then blends with modernity. Wide spreads of forests which transmits ample of fresh air for healthy living. Lakes are the soul which knits the culture and the nature altogether here. Life here is multidimensional in a sense that it always connects to the roots.

Named as the most romantic spots in India by one of the British administrators, Udaipur is a famous tourist destination and is known for its history, culture, scenic locations, the Rajput-era palaces and the sophisticated lake system. Some of its famous tourist spots include the Mewari Pride City Palace, Sajjangarh Palace, Ambrai Ghat, Gangaur Ghat and Bagore Ki Haveli. You can get glimpses of the city in the movies like Dhadak, Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani, Goliyon ki Rasleela-Ram Leela. This city has its own charm and monsoons add to its beauty. To sum up this city, I would quote the Mughal Emperor: “Gar firdaus bar-rue zamin ast, hami asto, hamin asto, hamin ast” (If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here).

Udaipur is the city of lakes. The beauty of lakes and serene greenery is mesmerizing, hence the name ‘Venice of India’. One should visit the local handicraft section and City Palace to immerse themselves in the glorious history of Mewar. Udaipur is not just a city, it’s a dream, a wedding destination and an amalgamation of modern ideas with colourful culture.

The city is small and has a very peaceful, good-hearted people and a friendly attitude. It’ll surely be in your routine to frequent temples and places of worship.

Udaipur, known as the city of lakes, is the cleanest city of Rajasthan. Udaipur in the southern Rajasthan. The weather of the city is pretty good. In summer it crossed 45 degree Celsius yearly but in the night the weather becomes normal.

Anyone moving to Udaipur must know some Hindi and English both as there are only a few people who understand any other language.

Udaipur is really great tourist place with lots of lakes and surrounding with hills. It is Lake city among many. Udaipur is known for Pichola Lake and Saheliyon Ki Bari. Udaipur is really close to other mountain areas like Mount Abu.

Prefer a two-wheeler over a car. Inner parts of the city have very narrow lanes, and it is not possible to drive there. Also, driving on Rani Road (on the perimeter of lake Fateh Sagar) is way more refreshing when you are on a two wheeler. City sleeps by 10 at night. You won’t find market open after nine or 10 pm. Make sure to buy your groceries on time. Try living in places like hiran magri (sector three to 6, 13, 14) or fatehpura or bhupalpura. The localities are good in every sense.
