History of udaipur

Udaipur is a city of royalty and has been the capital of Mewar rulers for decades. It was founded by Maharana Udai Singh II in the year 1553. Maharana Udai Singh met a hermit while he was hunting in the Aravalli Hills. The sage blessed the king and advised him to establish a kingdom in this fertile land and told him that it would be protected by the great Aravalli Hills. As a result of this, Udai Singh II established a residence on the ridge east of Pichola Lake. At the time, Chittorgarh was the capital of Mewar.\n\nIn the year 1568 Akbar the Mughal emperor captured Chittorgarh. In the years that followed, the Mughal Empire weakened the Sisodia rulers were able to recapture most of Mewar. Udaipur then became the capital of Mewar, which was made a princely state of British India in the year 1818. After India's independence, Mewar was included into the state of Rajasthan. Now, Udaipur enjoys a great position on the maps of Rajasthan and is in fact one of the main reasons people visit the state.
