The city palace , a Wonderland.

This is part 2 of the Udaipur palace.Read Part 1 here

The palace has huge rooms converted into galleries depicting the life history of Mewar kings. Paintings depicting the life of Rana Pratap the valiant ruler; and his horse Chetak who painted the history of Mewar in golden letters are  certainly awe inspiring.  The  articles and artefacts used by the royal clan are also on display and that reflects the customs, culture and values they nurtured ages  ago.

The flooring of the palace and walls are made of rich designs in marble . The wide windows adorned with colurful stained glass  makes the palace an ethereal beauty. The tall ceilings and well arched  windows  makes the interiors brighter with natural light and at the same time gives a panoramic view of the surroundings.

Exquisite craftsmanship is seen in every inch of the palace be it on wood, metal or on marble and a building as old as 500 years old stands tall as if touching the skyline on the banks of lake Pichola . It is real feast to the eyes.

There’s lot to see, lot to feel happy about.

More to follow.
