As promised in my earlier blog, I am sharing part II of the trip to Udaipur.
Pratap Smark (Moti Magri)
Moti Magri is one of the interesting tourist attractions of Udaipur. One can see a statue of Maharana Pratap on the top of the Moti Magri Udaipur. Moti Magri or the Pearl Hill is a beautiful hill from where one can enjoy the bird-eye view of the Fateh Sagar Lake. The statue of erstwhile Rajput ruler Maharana Pratap Singh with his horse Chetak or Pratap Memorial was built to pay homage to this legendary Rajput hero. The statue in this Pratap Memorial on the top of Moti Magri Udaipur is made of bronze. One can reach the Moti Magri of Udaipur through lush gardens.
Saheliyon ki Bari- the Garden of Royal Ladies
Saheliyon ki Bari lies just beneath the Fateh Sagar Lake. Maharana Sangram Singh II designed this garden in the early 18th century purely as a pleasure garden and a summer palace for the 48 young maids that formed a part of the prince’s dowry.
Bhartiya Lok Kala Museum
The museum deals mainly with the tribal and folk art of India. It has an extensive collection that includes dresses, dolls, masks, musical instruments, paintings and the famous puppets of Rajasthan.
Mansoon Palace (Sajjangarh Fort)
¤ The Palace Attractions
Sajjangarh Fort is at a height of 3100 feet above sea level and 1100 feet over the Fateh Sagar Lake. The palaces of the fort look like a tiara on the head of a rocky hill, the one on which the fort proudly stands. The rocky crag is massive and has an excellent view of the surrounding hills, pristine lakes and snow-white palaces. The fortplace is crowned by the Monsoon Palace, which also has a panoramic view of the lakes and palaces and the city below.
Vintage Collection of Classic Car Museum
The collection within the grounds of the Garden Hotel comprises a variety of classic and interestingly rare transportation vehicles.
The garages here are a home to around 24 vehicles which were once the means of transportation for the Maharajas. Vintage cars like Cadillac, Chevrolet and Morris are simply rocking. There are other models of cars which are unique in their own way. Some are sleek while the others are broad exhibiting the taste of the royal Maharajas.
Excellent car museum for vinatge car lovers... Have a look at the pics...
