Photographer's Note

Udaipur (उदयपुर) the white city. An old city of Rajasthan with two lakes and a beautiful palace in the middle of one lake.
This is a view on the City Palace of Udaipur.

Surmounted by balconies, towers and cupolas towering over the lake, the imposing City Palace is Rajasthan’s largest palace, with a facade 244m long and 30.4m high. Construction was begun by Maharana Udai Singh II, the city’s founder, and it later became a conglomeration of structures (including 11 separate smaller palaces) built and extended by various maharanas, though it still manages to retain a surprising uniformity of design. There are fine views over the lake and the city from the palace’s upper terraces.
