Unarguably one of the most beautiful and hence also one the most popular gardens of Udaipur city. The surrounding lavish greenery and 18th century Rajput architecture will absolutely behold your heart and senses. It is indeed a place that exemplifies Udaipur city’s tryst with beautiful mother nature. Located on the banks of famous Fateh Sagar Lake, this astoundingly beautiful garden was constructed by Maharana Sangram Singh as a private recreation center for his newly weed wife and her 48 maidens. It is said that Maharana Sangram’s wife and all the 48 maidens indeed spent most of their day-to-day lives at this very garden and hence it got the name Saheliyon ki Bari; the literal English translation of the same means Garden of maids (servants). This historical maid garden is replete with many beautiful architectural structures which are mainly exemplified through innumerable fountains & ponds. The best pond & main attraction, though, is the lotus pond, which is widely considered as most beautiful part of this garden. Click Here to know more
