Udaipur is one of the best tourist destination in Rajasthan, India.

Here are just some of the reasons why we loved Udaipur so much and why you should definitely add it to your Rajasthan itinerary.
Clean and Good Weather:
It is Obvious that India is not clean country compare to another big countries are! Nowadays peoples are gets aware about the sanitation in India after Indian PM Narendra Modi stated campaign for same. But Udaipur is the cleanest city ever. Municipal Corporation of Udaipur is very active and always have implemented a strict clean Udaipur and it was initiative in order to keep the streets gleaming.
Truth is, India isn’t the cleanest of countries and however, Udaipur is the cleanest city I’ve visited here thus far. There was little sign of the usual combination of trash and cow dung that makes walking around a bit unpleasant at times. I was really surprised at just how clean it was, so I looked into it a little further. Turns out, the authorities there have implemented a strict ‘Clean Udaipur’ initiative in order to keep the streets gleaming.
The Aravali mountain range forms the backdrop of the city, which makes it even more enchanting. Udaipur is marked with beautiful buildings, temples & Palaces worth visiting. Moderate climate is usually observed in the city throughout the year. However, summers are hot, therefore travelling to the place during summer should be avoided. Best time for travelling is October to March.
Lakes Are Immensely Beautiful:
Lakes make a perfect backdrop to the romantic setting of Udaipur. Udaipur is truly famous for its beautiful lakes and watercourses. The city is popular by the phrase of ‘The City of Lakes’. The Picturesque lakes offering fabulous view of the mountains make Udaipur, a dream destination of every tourist. Since ages, these lakes have been providing water to the city dwellers.
Lake Pichola: This is beautiful lake in Udaipur and Located in the heart of the city, Pichola Lake is the oldest and one of the largest lakes of Udaipur. In 1362, the beautiful lake was built by Pichhu Banjara during the ruling period of Maharana Lakha.
Lake FatehSagar: Fateh Sagar Lake is the second artificial lake of Udaipur, the first being Jaisamand lake. Built in 1678 by Maharana Jai Singh, Fateh Sagar Lake got its name from Maharana Fateh Singh, who later made additions to it.
Lake Jaisamand: Jaisamand Lake is renowned for being the second largest artificial lake in Asia. Located at a distance of 48 kms from the city of Udaipur, Jaisamand Lake is also known as Dhebar. In 1685, Maharana Jai Singh built this lake while making a dam on the Gomti River.
On a 40 Acre Island in the midst of Jaisamand Lake is another resort worth going to stay called Jaisamand Island Resorts, it is the only resort in North West Region of the country to be built on a Private Island of 40 acres. Jaisamand Lake and the Sanctuary are rich in fauna with counts of over 300 bird species. So it is a must stay for all those Bird lovers!
The Cultural Traditions:
Rajasthan is very famous for their culture activities that organized time to time in city and another cities of states. Rajasthani culture is renowned throughout India. This rich culture is reflected in folk music and dances – both of which we had the opportunity to experience while we were there.
Dharohar dance show is one of the best activity which takes place every evening at 8 PM at the Bagore-ki-Haveli. The women were dressed in the most beautiful and colorful traditional clothes, and the dances were just phenomenal. One dance entailed a woman doing all kinds of moves with eight massive clay pots resting on her head. In Cyprus we break plates – here they manage to dance with them without having to smash them into smithereens!
Shilpgram takes place in December around Christmas and so I always wait for this Utsav to begin! As the name suggests it actually is an UTSAV, not only the local craftsmen but craftsmen from all over the country participate in it. Shilpgram is a miniature man-made village, so every year during winters there are not only stalls of clothes but also of craft, jewellery and eatables! The entire day just flies once you are here. As the sun sets in the backdrop..the evenings are the best time of the entire day, cold breezes and the typical Rajasthani good of Dal, Bati, Choorma and the Raab.
Perfect Destination for Romance:
Many lakes and restaurant with suitable places around them are make it more romantic and travelling couple are enjoy the precious moments of their life here. In a country less known for its romantic getaways, Udaipur offers tranquil nights, splendid strolls, and an exotic seduction that’s hard to resist, making it an ideally romantic honeymoon destination for newlyweds.
