is the key city of Rajasthan's southern region of Mewar.
Mewar is a hilly, forested region, in complete contrast
to the harsh desert of Marwar in the northwest.
Rajasthan folk song succinctly defines the difference
thus: "Where the babool tree grows, that is Marwar, where
the aonla (Embica officinalis) tree grows, that is Mewar".
Apart from the city itself, there are a number of interesting
sights within a 60-Mile radius of Udaipur :
The temples of Eklingji, Nathdwara and Ranakpur, the fort
of Kumbalgarh and Jaisamand Lake.
away are the great fort of Chittorgarh, the spectacular
temples of Mount Abu and the splendid palaces of Dungarpur.
