A lake city was founded in the 16 century. Udaipur, the capital city of Ranas of Mewar , is known for its fairytale palaces that nestle along the banks of a lake, or completely cover islands in its midst.
The lovely lake side capital of Mewar is also known as city of lakes. One of the most popular destination of Rajasthan, India among all. The Pichola Lake, Fateh Sagar, Udai Sagar and Swaroop Sagar in this city are considered some of the most beautiful lakes in the state.
