Moving on from the India's most valorous fort of Chittaurgarh Palace-On-Wheels next halt happens to be the other capital of the Sisodia Maharanas, Udaipur. On the sixth day of the Palace-On-Wheels tour you arrive at Udaipur at 07.30 hrs. Udaipur is also known as the "City of Palaces", a "Fairyland" and a "Vision in Dream". It is surrounded by hills, mountains, and its beautiful palaces are mirrored in the calm blue water of Lake Pichola. Maharana Udai Singh created Udaipur, as the capital of Mewar, in 1568.
The lakeside city was built on a small wooded plain encircled by mountains, which was in direct contrast to the masculinity of Chittor and Kumbhalgarh. The houses and temples of the old city stretch out around the Lake Pichola in a pale honeycomb that makes Udaipur an oasis of colours in a stark and arid region like Rajasthan. Amongst the many worth visiting places in Udaipur are the City Palace and the Lake Palace.
