Architecture, street and landscape photography in Udaipur, Rajasthan

The city of Udaipur has been given various names like ‘Venice of the east’, ‘City of lakes’ and ‘White city’ which is the reason I was excited to visit and do photography in such a wonderful city. Even the famous James Bond film “Octopussy” was also filmed in this very city. I visited Udaipur for two days in November as the weather remains cool during that time. I have divided my photography into three parts namely architecture, street and landscape, which you can find below – 

Udaipur architecture photography

The “Çity palace” in Udaipur has some great architectural features and the interior rooms are quite colorful and decorative compared to other forts. Even Bagore-ki-Haveli near to the lake has some unique features, although it doesn’t stand up to the mighty ‘City palace’.

Udaipur street photography 

The old city of Udaipur is quite unique and good for street photography as they have buildings colored in white color, which is the reason it is called the ‘white city’. Most of the white buildings are located near to the Pichola lake and you have to do some walking in that area in order to spot them.

Udaipur landscape photography 

The two vast lakes in Udaipur – Pichola lake and Fateh sagar lake are in the middle of the city and can be easily reached. They offer great opportunities for people interested in landscape photography. It is best to visit them early in the morning or sunset for great photos.
