Detailed Itinerary

This morning you will be met by your local English-speaking representative at your Mumbai hotel and transferred to the airport for your flight to Udaipur. Upon arrival in Udaipur, you will be met by another local English-speaking representative and transferred to your hotel. The remainder of the day is free at your leisure.

The origins of Udaipur are based on a legend which tells of a holy sage that Maharaja Udai Singh encountered while hunting in the foothills of the Aravalli Range in Mewar. The sage told the King to build a palace in that exact spot and it would be well protected, and so with this advice Maharaja Udai Singh built his residence there. At the time, Chittorgarh was the capital of Mewar state. However in 1568 Chittorgarh was attacked by the Mughal Emperor Akbar, and so Maharaja Udai Singh moved the capital to Udaipur. Today, the City Palace of Udaipur is still home to Maharaja Udai Singh’s descendants who remain rulers of this independent state.
