The most romantic spot in India (tagged by Colonel James Tod) surprisingly maintaining its precious emblem. The romanticism has shifted, and probably expanded.

Beside glimmering Lake Pichola, with the ochre and purple ridges of the wild Aravalli Hills stretching away in every direction, Udaipur has a romance of setting unmatched in Rajasthan. Fantastical palaces, temples, havelis and countless narrow, curvy, colourful streets add the human counterpoint to the city’s natural charms.

Take a step back from the hustle, however, and Udaipur still has its magic, not just in its marvellous palaces and monuments, but in its matchless setting, the tranquillity of boat rides on the lake, the bustle of its ancient bazaars, its lively arts scene, the quaint old-world feel of its better hotels, its endless tempting shops and some lovely countryside to explore on wheels, feet or horseback.
