Udaipur has been described as "wildly beautiful" by one author.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Katherine Russell Rich explained that she first discovered the city when researching a book and "hadn't counted on falling so hard for the place".
Ms Russell Rich noted that there are numerous things to recommend when visiting the destination.
"Crenulated marble palaces rise above an emerald green lake; thin backstreets spill down into cumin-scented bazaars you can never find a second time," she enthused.
For travellers visiting this part of India for the first time, the writer suggested taking a trip to Eklingji Temple.
The complex comprises 108 temples and is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. Although the current buildings have been on the site since the 15th century, temples are thought to have existed here for hundreds of years prior to that.
One of the main attractions at the place of worship is a four-faced idol of the deity, which is carved out of black marble.
