City Palace Complex

When India became a democracy and its states were merged into the Union of India, Rajasthan's royal rulers converted their palaces into resorts and tourist attractions to survive and generate income. Udaipur's City Palace Complex, belonging to the Mewar Royal Family sets the standard as far as such heritage tourism is concerned. This tourist destination incorporates two authentic palace resorts and the City Palace Museum. A collection of vintage cars, the Jag Mandir, and a palace in the middle of Lake Pichola also add to the interest.
