The abode of Uday or Udaipur is the city of sunrise. Lord Curzon on his 1902 tour of Udaipur was mesmerized by its beauty. With beautiful lakes, the marble palaces, decorated gardens and ancient temples, the city of Udaipur has been developed. There are five palaces-City Palace, Jag Niwas, Jag Mandir, Lakshmivilas and Monsoon Palace. But each palace is unique in its architectural grandeur. The ambience resonates with the tales of heroism and valour of Rajputs. In the past, Udaipur was the capital of Mewar. Being trained by a sage in the forest, Sishodiya Maharana Guhil founded Mewar in 568 AD. The dynasty is the oldest in the world, which ruled for 76 generations. They were the ancestors of King Rama belonging to the Surya dynasty. In course of time the kingdom returned to Udaipur via Nagda, Chittor. After being defeated by Akbar, Maharana Uday Singh built the city on the bank of Pichhola, on the slope of the Aravalli Mountain (577 m) in 1569.

The successors of Rana lost their kingdom but are still honoured in Rajasthan.
