#311 Udaipur, Rajasthan

Last week, I visited one of the most beautiful cities in India, Udaipur. This also happened to be my first trip to Rajasthan, the desert state of India. Udaipur, however, is like an oasis; well I did not visit the sandy parts of the state, but Udaipur surely looked like an oasis. It is beautifully located in the laps of the Aravali mountain range, and is also called as the the Venice of the East and the Lake City. It was setup as final capital of the Mewar Kingdom by Maharana Uday Singh. You can read more about Udaipur on Wikipedia.

Pretty that it is, it did provide ample opportunities to take some great photographs. Being with a crowd is always bad when you want to set out on a lonely photowalk with only your camera. But here are a few shots I did manage to capture:

Clearly, these images do not capture even one percent of the beauty my eyes captured in Udaipur. I certainly will make one more trip! If you have a few days at hand and need a good break, head to Udaipur, today!
