Udaipur – A Photo Essay

 

Deciding our next road trip destination is always a task. This time we made it simple by eliminating Goa from the list 😉

With just a week in hand, we headed to Udaipur to soak in the grandeur of the Mewar dynasty. A historically and culturally rich capital of the Mewar Kingdom, Udaipur is named after Maharana Udai Singh who founded this city.

A known photographers paradise, here are a few glimpses of the city I fell in love with.
