Udaipur also is known as “The City of Dawn” and “The City of Lakes” was founded in 1558 by King Udai Singh II, belonging to the Sisodia clan of Rajput. He built the city when he shifted his capital from Chittaurgarh after the city of Chittaurgarh was besieged by the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Udaipur was the capital city of the Kingdom of Mewar, till 1818 when it became a British princely state. The Kingdom of Mewar was ruled by the Sisodia dynasty for 1200 years and Udaipur is often referred to as the jewel of Mewar, its most fascinating city. The city is located in the southernmost part of the state of Rajasthan and is known for its several lakes. The major attraction of the city is the City Palace towering over Lake Pichola. There were seven gates to the palace, out of which five have survived the times. The main entrance to the palace is through the triple-arched gate called “Tripolia”. Other important tourist attractions in Udaipur are Jagdish Temple (built-in 1651 AD), Saheliyon – Ki- Bari, Lake Palace, Jag Mandir, Monsoon Palace, and Lake Pichola.
