The Raj Lake Palace was built by the Maharaja of Udaipur as his Summer Palace. Now a hotel, is is a heavenly place to stay. It really makes you feel like royalty. The Palace is stunning in the daytime, but as the sun rises, or sets, it is even more magnificent. I rose at dawn to take these shots and was helped by one of the hotel boatmen, who patiently manoeuvred me around to get the best angles.
