About Udaipur

The lake city Udaipur, known as the Venice of the east, is famous for its beautiful lakes with a backdrop of Aravali hills, one of the oldest fold mountains in the world. The romance of Rajasthan is still alive in the form of art and culture, Mewar School of art, imbued with spirituality, is still present with its eminent characteristics. The historical monuments of Mewar attract the attention of artists in both miniature and contemporary art.  The majestic architecture of the City Palace is an ultimate example of Mewar art. Impressive temple architecture, with its fragrance of religious sentiments enveloping the city, inspires visiting artists to create their own masterpieces. Many miniature art and contemporary art studios and galleries can be found in Udaipur. Every day a special dance and puppet show organized by Indian culture heritage is performed at Bagor Ki Haveli. Every last Saturday of the month there is also a live drama performance.

Udaipur is an enchanting location, a fascinating blend of past and present, sights, sounds and experiences and an inspiration for the imagination of artists, sculptors, musicians, dancers, poets, writers and filmmakers. Apart from the typically touristy attractions you may immerse yourself in the experience of ordinary daily life in Udaipur.
