A magnificent palace lying at the southern end of the Palace Complex of Udaipur city - Shiv Niwas Palace originally served as the royal residence of Maharana Fateh Singhji. It was much later that the late Maharana Bhagwat Singhji envisaged the palace as a venue for entertaining visitors to the city, which led to its conversion into a fine Heritage Hotel. This lavish Hotel is equipped with all modern-day comforts, with spacious and luxurious rooms. The hotel restaurant, the Paantya specialises in Indian and traditional Rajasthani dishes. However, you can also get Continental dishes and breakfast.
The Meenakshi Temple in Madurai is a spectacular building, towering over the whole city.
