Rajasthan (9) Udaipur - The City Palace

We did the tourist thing and visited The City Palace, a labyrinthine maze of 11 mahals or palaces and clearly a place one could get lost in.  Again all the classic architectural features of hanging balconies, courtyards, ornate tiles and paint work, light distributing mirrors, cooling marble work and an abundance of colour in this video diary. Note in the last picture the mounting steps in front of the palace, the higher one is for elephants!
