The City Palace of Udâipûř

Greetings to my lovely hivers.
In my previous post i share my experience and pics of udaipur trip.
Today i am sharing about The City Palace of Udaipur.
I want to write a full blog about the city palace because there I gained so much knowledge about the history and I spend 4 hours in the palace. We took a guide there who told us about the history and the palace very well.

The city palace was built over a period nearly 400 years with the contributions from several rulers if Mewar dynasty. The construction was started by Maharana Udai Singh of sisodia Rajput family.The palace is located on the east Bank of Lake pichola. This palace was built over a long period by 22 generations of sisodia Rajputs.
The palace complex has been built entirely by granites and marbles.
The interiors of the balconies, towers, dome exhibit delicate mirror- work, marble- work, silver-work, wall- paintings and colored glasses. The complex provides a view of the lake,and the city from its upper terrace.
