Udaipur: The lake Palace Hotel

The Lake Palace Hotel , which is situated on an island in Lake Pichola, is without doubt Udaipur's most famous sight and one that a lot of people have seen images of without knowing where it is located. This is entirely due to the James Bond movie Octopussy which was filmed in part at the hotel. Here it is seen from the City Palace:


Lake Palace hótelið er frægasta byggingin í Udaipur, en sennilega vita fæstir sem hafa séð af henni myndir hvar hún er staðsett. Þetta má þakka James Bond-myndinni Octopussy, en titilpersóna þeirrar myndar bjó í byggingunni.

You can catch the movie in many of the city's restaurants and guest-houses if you haven't seen it.

Myndin er sýnd á mörgum veitingastöðum og gistiheimilum borgarinnar á hverju kvöldi.

Seen from a different angle, just before sundown. I got the feeling that one could probably wade out to the hotel, the lake was that shallow.


Hótelið rétt fyrir sólsetur. Vatnið var svo grunnt að það hefði líklega verið hægt að vaða út í hótelið.
