Introduction :

One of the most romantic cities in all of Rajasthan, Udaipur is better known as the city of lakes. The marble palaces, the beautiful gardens and the placid blue lakes enhance the beauty of this city. It was founded in 1568 by Maharana Udai Singh II. The Lake Palace is certainly the best late example of this unique cultural explosion, but Udaipur is full of palaces, temples and havelis ranging from the modest to the extravagant. It's also proud of its heritage as a centre for the performing arts, painting and crafts.

Money :

You can change money at a number of places including the Vijaya Bank and Thomas Cook, both in the City Palace complex. At Chetak Circle, the State Bank of Bikaner & Jaipur changes money. There is also the Bank of Baroda, the Bank of Rajasthan and the Punjab National Bank, all in Bapu Bazaar.

Post & Communications :

The main post office is directly north of the old city, at Chetak Circle, but poste restante is at the post office at Shastri Circle. There is also a small post office in the quadrant outside the City Palace museum. The DHL Worldwide Express office is at 380 Ashok Nagar, Shree Niketan Building.
