Udaipur - The City of Lake | Udaipur Series


     Udaipur the city where I had been living for about one and a half years and trust me its an amazing place if you like exploring. It is justified to called Udaipur as the City of Lake because there are three bigger lakes you can find within the city radius they are: Fateh Sagar Lake, Pichola Lake, and Badi Lake. The other three which are outside the city they are Udai Sagar (which 28km from City Palace), Rajsamand Lake (which is 64km) and Jaisamand lake (which is 56km). Also, some of the lakes are man-made lakes. I happened to visit all lake except Rajsamand and Jaisamand Lake. Udaipur is also called the "Venice of the East" by the tourist coming from the west. 

     
So here I am Sharing some of the pictures of Udaipur which I happen to Capture while exploring.
