Rich Cities: Visit to Udaipur

Most of Hollywood depiction of India is derived from Slumdog Millionnaire. And like many millennials, a lot of my impressions were based on these movies.

But that changed quickly on my visit to Udaipur, Rajasthan. The city has a rich history and culture that predates many civilizations. During this trip, I learned a lot about its history and it also has links to my ancestry.

Here are some of the pictures from my trip!
