Post Assignment Travel - Udaipor

Following the assignment some of us are doing some travel. From Jamnagar we flew back to Mumbai then up to Udaipur for a couple of days. Udaipur is famous for it's three palaces. The summer palace is in Lake Pichola and was used in the filming of the James Bond film Octopussy, which the residents were very proud about.

Here's the Main palace at night from where we had dinner.

One evening we went up to the Moonsoon Palace which is high above the city and I captured this view looking our over Udaipur.

I was woken early one morning by a loud tractor unloading building material, so I headed up to the roof of the hotel to watch the sun rise over the lake.

During the hot afternoon we visited a local garden that is famous for it's fountains. The gardens were pleasant enough to walk around, but I thought the fountains could use some maintenance.

Next stop is Jodhpur.
