City Palace of Udaipur: Historical View and a Guide
City Palace of Udaipur: Historical View and a Guide
Description
About the Book:

A city named after its founder. Maharana Udai Singh II, Udaipur has, ever since its first appearance on Rajasthan's map in 1569, substituted Chittorgarh as the capital of Mewar State. And all along its history, this "City of Sunrise" has not only kept alive the spirit of Rajput chivalry, hospitality and legendary romance, but also exemplified the best in Rajput art, architecture and cultural traditions.

Irmgard Meininger here gives you fascinating glimpses of Udaipur's City Palace, known widely for its gorgeous royal apartments, its lavish use of white marble and equally lavish carvings, its beautiful gardens and fountains - to finally take you to its other side: the dominating "white mass of the palace" which, of late, has been set up as a museum. The author tries to describe not only the museum exhibits, but also the whole mix of arches, vaults, turrets and battlements that characterise the very palatial structure housing the museum.

Including a historical overview of Udaipur and its over 1400-year-old royal family, the Guide is enriched with exquisite visual material illustrating much of which you would want to know and see for yourself in the City Palace Museum.

About the Author:

Ms. Meininger, a German Judge for Criminal Law in profession, is a genuine connoisseur of arts, especially Indian arts and history that first drew her to India as far back as 1973. Her acquaintance ever since, with Maharaj Kumar Arvind Singh of Mewar and his family, coupled with four years of her intensive research and study combined with the input by Mohan Singh Kothari, a noble of Mewar has gone into the shaping of her this guide and the exquisite photographic reproductions it embodies. She has also published a more detailed and illustrative book on The Kingdom of Mewar.
