Udaipur was built by Maharana Udai Singh, father of Maharana Pratap Singh . In fact, he had built 3 palaces within the city which was trendy as the Winter Palace, the Summer Palace and the Monsoon Palace.  ae14b1f62d5d35c1ea04de3060988c55 While the Summer Palace has been acquired by Taj Property and has been transformed into one of the finest hotel of the country, the Winter palace is still occupied by the descendants of the King. On the contrary, the monsoon palace was more a fun place and far away from the city. Today, you see only the remnants of it and some construction and restoration work in progress.  While the summer palace is open only for the guests of the Hotel, the Monsoon Palace is open for all and gives an out of the world experience and view of the entire city.e7cb55b702b18e0bf76133d396b9420b1 The Winter Palace too is open for all as part of it has been converted to museum and some portion given for marriage and other functions based on booking. bf397d135917512e40addc159bb48796
Unarguably, the hospitality of the Lake Taj Pichola is the best and whatever days you stay there, you are going to be treated like Maharajas and Maharanis and spoilt to the core. The hotel present right at the center of the lake gives you an amazing view of City Lake Palace and renders an extraordinary regal experience from every room and every corner of the Palace. b794b62dbe0097d3089d82eef01a2288
Right from the pickup at Airport where we got a free upgrade to Landover, to the Welcome at the boarding point, it was a fantastic experience. Well well, you will be guided to a motor jetty to actually arrive at the Palace. Taj people known for their generosity and warmth, lots of smiling and humble faces around, a fresh rose petal welcome, wonderful aroma around and a nice welcome drink, the mood is set to take all your fatigue away and you get refreshed in a fraction of second.

Don’t be surprised if it turns out to be one of the best mornings of your life. The restaurant has big glass walls almost facing to the palace separated by clear blue water. The sun beams at you warming your chair and table and birds fly next to you just on the other side of clear transparent glass. Well, you can either retire in your room or pay a visit to the museum or pay a visit to the Monsoon Palace. 2096cf22d5db55aa4fd9d4b52a98ddd9364b2499bedef3ecfc2ea42f16067e37
