Draped around a series of shimmering lakes on the fringes of the desert, Udaipur has an ethereal beauty that’s captured the hearts of generations of travellers. It’s not so much about its individual sights as about the overall picture. And what a picture it is: an artful tangle of lime-washed mansions and palaces, interspersed by tiny secret gardens, rising from the water’s edge like something out of a dream.
This oasis of (relative) calm is made for sybaritic drifting. Your personal version of that could be taking a scenic cruise to admire an ornately decorated brace of island palaces. It could be finding the perfect rooftop terrace from which to take in the views at sunset as the music from a local temple washes over you. Or it could be soaking up the ambience of a luxuriant garden filled with birdsong. Even in the far-from-tranquil narrow lanes of the old town – jam-packed with tiny craft shops and stalls selling everything from colourfully embroidered jackets to sugar-cane juice – the sheer charm of the place shines through.
