Bhagore Ki Haveli
It was our second excursion of Udaipur after Sajjangarh. After coming downhill through the winding roads of the Aravalli hills, we reached the banks of Lake Pichola.

Bhagore ki Haveli is a huge mansion located at the gangor Ghat of lake Pichola. It has over a hundred rooms which has now been converted into a museum. The rooms display costumes, weapons and art. The prime minister of Mewar had built this Haveli in the mid eighteenth century.
At present there are 138 rooms with numerous corridors and balconies, courtyards and terraces. Most of them have been restored and few of the rooms open to the public. Unique items of the Rajput clan are put on dispaly here. I was not much interested in going inside every nook of this palatial mansion. I was happy seeing the Gangor ghat in the front. We took some pictures outside the palace, romped around on the banks of the lake and then left for our next stop.

We were destined to come back in the evening to watch some heritage performances..something which all the people had been raving about. And no we did not regret a moment when we watched the show in the evening. The whole haveli lit up and it was a very pretty sight.
