On Day 2, in the evening, we visit the Monsoon palace. The rulers (Maharanas) had palaces for different seasons...there's a Summer, a Winter and a Monsoon Palace at Udaipur.

Its an uphill drive...very scenic.

The front facade.                                      The sun-lit back side.

The dry vegetation on the hill.

Parakeets are abundant on the hills around Udaipur.

After sunset, we drive around town and then head straight for "Aapni Dhaani" on NH (National Highway) 8 to catch a glimpse of Rajasthani folk music and savour a full fledged Rajasthani Thali.

Chetak Circle - named after Maharana Pratap's favourite and India's most famous horse. A busy cross-section in Udaipur.

At Aapni Dhani, we relish a Rajasthani meal in the traditional way...we sit on the floor and eat with our hands.

   

Daal Baati Choorma                                    Rasgulla

After the very heavy meal, we retire for the day. We have an early morning...have to drive to Ahmedabad.
