Oct 3, 2017: An astounding floating palace, Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur, is the ultimate romantic destination for you and your better half, in the coming season.

This floating palace amidst Lake Pichola was constructed by Maharana Jagat Singh II in 1746, and today it’s a lavish five-star hotel and in addition, an ideal shooting location.

The floating palace is situated opposite the bigger City Palace in Udaipur and owns 360 degrees of the lake and city view from its spot in the quiet waters. Reestablished in the 1960s, the hotel incorporates 66 rooms and 17 suites with all day and all night facilities.

Also, in case you’re tingling to get your feet on dry land, getting to and from the hotel is only a fast excursion by water taxi from the city pier.
