Located on the east bank of Lake Pichola, Udaipur's City Palace is a magnificent complex, begun in 1559, that stands as a testament to the Rajasthan kingdom of Mewar. The picturesque city of Udaipur is hailed by some as "Venice of the East" and is well worth a visit. If you've seen the James Bond film "Octopussy", this scene should look familiar to you, as several moments in the movie were shot here. This picture was taken while I was leading a walking tour of India, during a short cruise on Lake Pichola.
