Serene lakes, mighty palaces, tranquil gardens, timeless artistry, colorful markets and the high-spirited locals make Udaipur, one of its kind. Take a look at Udaipur from the eye of a curious traveller aand here’s what he has to say!

  1. Because, Where Else Would You See Paintings On Water?

     Jal Sanji is a 200 year old intricate artwork where the artist uses water as a canvas to paint the legend of Lord Krishna. With a few secret ingredients sprinkled over boiled water, the artist makes a floating base upon which stencils are placed.

Visit Udaipur and try your hand at Jal Sanji with the help of the experienced artists there.

    Jal Sanji is entirely devoted to Lord Krishna and the paper stencils have instances of his life that is beautifully layed out. Once the stencils are placed over the floating base, coloured powder is sprinkled to create a unique masterpiece. The artists worry that this dying art may soon be lost forever.

    Jag Mandir also served as a refuge for Prince Khurram (popularly known as Shah Jahan) accompanied by his wife and two sons.The family lived in the Gul Mahal and so, you’d find a mosque inside the complex too. It also has a beautiful courtyard, which is festooned with black and white tiles.
