Rajasthan has always fascinated people from all over the world with the grandeur of its forts, palaces and the architecture of its havelis. The best of these with various other attractions can be found in Jaipur and Udaipur alone. Jaipur, the City of Victory, also called the pink city of India, was originally Sawai Jaipur, named after its founder Sawai Jai Singh II (1700-1743). The sunset pink tinge of its walls, buildings, temples and emporia gave it the name Pink City. Jaipur was built in a grid system with wide straight avenues, roads, streets and lanes and uniform row of shops on either side of the main bazars, all arranged in nine rectangular city sectors (Chokris). The principal monuments of Jaipur are concentrated in the centrally situated palace sector (Chokri Sarhad) in and around the City Palace. The city itself is an attractive creation worthy of universal admiration.

Udaipur, likewise, is a proud heritage city of Rajasthan. The Udaipur Palace is built on an island on a lake girdled by hills. Built two and half centuries ago by Maharana Jagat Singh II on a rocky island rising from the broad waters of Lake Pichola, which was created by his forebear, Maharana Udai Singh, after whom Udaipur is named. Besides the palace their are various other monuments and other attractions which Udaipur can be proud of: Sahelion Ki Bari, Shilpgram, Jaisamand Lake, Kumbhalgarh, Nagda, Eklingji, Nathdwara, Ranakpur. A place which is a must see.
