The City Palace of Udaipur
The City Palace of Udaipur is one of the most remarkable constructions of the Rajput rulers of Rajasthan. Located in the heart of the city of Udaipur and towering over the Lake Pichola, the City Palace unfailingly infuses a sense of awe in the hearts of its onlookers. It is the standing testimony of Rajput passion for art and architecture despite the fact that the exterior is not as elegant as the interiors.
The Mor Chowk has beautiful glass mosaics of peacocks set in wall highlighting three
different seasons : summer, winter and monsoon.
