Udaipur and Mount Abu 5 Days / 4Nights
Udaipur is referred to as the "Venice of the East," the "Most Romantic City of India" and the "Kashmir of Rajasthan". Tourists flock to this enchanting city in the heart of the Aravalli Hills, which has three interconnected lakes: Fateh Sagar Lake, Lake Pichhola and the Swaroop Sagar Lake. With its forts, palaces, temples, gardens, mountains and narrow lanes lined with stalls in the medieval historic center, Udaipur is a living memory of a heroic past with valor and chivalry.
Out in the parched desert of Rajasthan, Mount Abu, a surprising mountain retreat, will take you high above the heat wave - where the air is cool and the weather is pleasant. On a drive through the desert, you'll suddenly find the sands give way to verdant mountains, the beautiful Nakki Lake fringed with lovely trees, cool breeze, and heavenly environs.
There are many other things about this quaint and only hill station in Rajasthan. Apart from the famous Jain Dilwara Temples with their intricately carved facades, the town has ancient Gaumukh Temple and the beautiful Nakki Lake. Listen to locals reciting fables of ancient Indian sages at the Gaumukh Temple and Adhar Devi Temple. Enjoy endless hours deciphering stories of Jainism that are carved intricately on the walls of the Dilwara Temples.
In addition to the temples, the hill station has its own set of peaceful places where you can spend time at. A walk through the Peace Park, which is impeccably maintained by a charitable organisation, will cool you off. Enjoy picturesque views from the Sunset Point as well as the Honeymoon Point.

In the morning, visit the world famous Dilwara Jain Temple, Nakki Lake and Brahmin Kumari Ashram. Dilwara Temple are a group of remarkable Jain temples. Among the finest examples of these are two temples in which the art of carving marble has reached unsurpassed heights. The older of the temples is the 'Vimal Vasahi', built in 1031 and dedicated to the first tirthankar, Adinath. In the front of the temple stands the 'House of Elephants', with figures of elephants marching in procession to the temple entrance. The later built 'Tejpal Temple' is dedicated to Neminath, the 22nd tirthankar, and was built in 1230 by the brothers Tejpal and Vastupal. The carving is so fine that, in places, the marble becomes almost transparent. Nakki Lake is virtually located in the heart of Mount Abu and is a big attraction with tourists. The lake takes its name from the legend that it was scooped out by a god, using only his nails, or nakh. While takeing a stroll along the lake, look for the strange rock formations.
