A History of Udaipur

In the heart of Udaipur city, you will find our new, boutique hotel Karma Seven Lakes. Before your unforgettable stay here, we thought you’d love to know more about the rich history of the city you’re exploring…

Known as the “Venice of the East”, Udaipur was once ranked one of the top 10 most beautiful cities in the world; and this is to no surprise, with the romantic settings and ambience that encompasses the streets. But to be more precise, it is compared to Venice in a comparative nature, as a complement to the city’s beauty. Secondly, due to its complex and unique lake system (similar to that of Venice); which depends on a series of waterways and canals for connectivity. 

The true story of Udaipur begins back in the 16th century, when Maharana Udai Singh II (Udai Singh), the 12th ruler of the Mewar dynasty, was under threat in his current hometown. Looking for a new location to settle and continue his reign, he discovered Udaipur, which was simply a fertile valley region at that time. 

Deciding to up and move his citadel, Udai Singh settled next to Lake Pichola, which had great hill areas and sufficient water for his people. He too built a 6km wall to protect Udaipur from the enemy ambush. 

Relentless for his new home Udaipur to succeed and stay liberated, people of all castes and communities were invited to create a new life in Udaipur. Along with inviting nobles and traders, who constructed their havelis and constructed industries and businesses. 

Over the decades Udaipur continued to be asserted by the Sisodia, however later in the 19th century, the British took control. 

After centuries of thriving, Udaipur still boasts plenty of affluent suburbs; such as New Fatehpura – where our Karma Seven Lakes is located. Now, the city is primarily driven by tourism, minerals, marble processing and chemical manufacturing/development.

  1. Me and my husband are frequent visitors of Udaipur. As members of Karma, we always thought about its own resort in this beautiful city of lakes. We are happy that Karma has got it now and are looking forward to enjoy the stay there.

  2. Udaipur is one the attractions we would like to visit during our Rajasthan trip in near future and this recent addition of Karma Seven Lakes fits very well in that.
