This is a must-see in Udaipur. It is a beautiful former palace that was converted into a Taj Hotel, and its main mystique is that it was built in the middle of Lake Pichola. Stunning and utterly luxurious!

A stunning piece of architecture and a great place to wine, dine and stay. A palace now a hotel by Taj is one of the great place to stay

One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in...and the only one that drizzles rose petals over you from the roof when you check in.

What can you say? It is a palace!

Udaipur, Rajasthan

Udaipur also known as the City of Lakes, is a city, a Municipal Council and the administrative headquarters of the Udaipur district in the state of Rajasthan in western India. It is located 403 kilometres (250 mi) southwest of the state capital, Jaipur, 248 kilometres (154 mi) west of Kota, and 250 kilometres (155 mi) northeast from Ahmedabad. Udaipur is the historic capital of the kingdom of Mewar in the former Rajputana Agency. The Guhils (Sisodia) clan ruled the Mewar and its capital was shifted from Chittorgarh to Udaipur after founding city of Udaipur by Maharana Uday Singh. The Mewar province became part of Rajasthan after India became independent
Apart from its history, culture, and scenic locations, it is also known for its Rajput-era palaces. The Lake Palace, for instance, covers an entire island in the Pichola Lake. Many of the palaces have been converted into luxury hotels. It is often called the "Venice of the East", and is also nicknamed the "Lake City". Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar Lake, Udai Sagar and Swaroop Sagar in this city are considered some of the most beautiful lakes in the state.

A must visit place on everyone's itinerary. The entry fees are a tad expensive.

Stunning palace set in the middle of a lake - I think it was in the movie Octopussy. Anyway, a sight worth seeing.
