Udaipur: On the Lake

One day I booked a sailing trip on the lake. I liked the juxtaposition of the very square and utilitarian lines of the boat (a ferry or a dredger?) and the rounded bulbous domes of the palace on the shore. I was told its a luxury hotel, but I can't find any collaboration of that statement.

Here is a familiar sight: Cormorants sunning themselves and waiting for unwary fish to swim close:

Yes, the domes are of the Oberoi Udaivilas hotel, among the finest luxury hotels in the world. (Do a search on Tripadvisor for more on the hotel - or Google "Oberoi Udaivilas" - if interested).

Thanks for the information, Rajan.
