         Udaipur is love. I visited udaipur on October 2017 during the vacation of Durga Puja in Kolkata. I started my journey in 12315 Ananya Express (Kolkata-Udaipur City) from Kolkata Railway Station . The 22 nos of coach pulled by a diesel engine throughout the numerous curves on the Aravali hills, you just can't forget to take a snap. After two nights of train journey finally reached udaipur. Udaipur in autumn is just amazing. A little bit chilly morning with blue sky & sunshine just feel awesome. After taking some rest I got out from my hotel picked up an auto and went to the pichola lake. The sunset on the pichola lake was just unforgettable. Next day starting my journey with full of energy , first I visited the City Palace. It is the emblem of Mewar Kingdom where you can find  history in every corner of the palace. Sajjhangarh Monsoon Palace, one of the major attraction in udaipur. Just as it situated on the top of the hill, you can see the panoramic view of the whole city. Moti Magri, another beautiful spot. A memorable of Maharana Pratap, which has a bronze statue of the Maharana astride his horse. You can also see the amazing view of Fatehsagar lake. After that I covered Bagore ki Haveli, Sahelion ki Bari, Jagdish Temple, Gulab Bagh etc. At that my udaipur story comes to an end. In every places where I visited in my Rajasthan trip, udaipur is always a special to me cause in every moment I enjoyed a lot which is unforgettable.
