City Palace Complex (Udaipur)

Highly recommended
The palace of the Maharaja of Udaipur, or the City Palace, is considered to be the largest palace-fortress in Rajasthan, measuring 500m in length and 30m in height. Showing strong Mughal influence, the palace overlooks Pichola Lake and boasts stunning views of the city. A true labyrinth, the palace is home to a number of different palaces, each of which contains countless treasures: Dilkush Mahal (miniatures), Chini Mahal (faience tiles), Surya Chaupar (copper mask covered with gold) etc. Part of the building has been converted into a hotel, while the remainder houses the City Palace Museum.
