Feeling Nostalgic in the Venice of the East is not new for the tourists as well native people. As our Lake City is blessed with such a charismatic beauty that is irresistible whether it comes to Lakes, Gardens, Markets or Streets, Udaipur has it all. Places like Saheliyon ki Badi, Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay Park, Rajeev Gandhi Park and so on have been Udaipur’s garden destination since longer now. And, to support that dearth of Gardens, a breath of fresh air has arrived in the form of Pratap Park.
This garden has come up at the Pichola Ring Road, at the fresh location on the southern banks of Pichola. Hence, we can sum it up as an entirely new place for everyone in the city either local visitors or tourists. The development of a Pratap Park in this area is a positive step for the other side of Pichola that is not very frequented.
While being here, visitors can tend to witness a view of Udaipur, which is not often seen from the denser side of Pichola Lake. The garden is equipped with world-class standards including Eco-friendly Park with solar lights, Neem Fertilisers, Recycled cement slurry tiles, and Local Stones fence.
Udaipurites!! Who are unfamiliar with the area, two roads lead to it, one is via Mulla Talai, which is a precarious route, replete with narrow lanes, while the other one is quite adventurous and easy way from Dudh Talai, through the Jungle Safari.
But, the uniqueness of this location is connected to the memory of Late Shri Pratap Bhandari, who has been instrumental in developing tourism in and around areas of Lake City.
The Park is situated on the shores of historical Lake Pichola has been prepared and would be conserved by the Pratap Basantilal Bhandari Charitable Trust. Built within the area of 60,000 Square feet, this garden comprises of an open gymnasium, a 250-meter acupressure walking track, gardens with mogra flowering and ample parking space.
Taking a cue to create patriotism for the Lake City, the “I LOVE UDAIPUR” signs ironically with the appealing backdrop of Lake Pichola and the City Palace.
And, be seeing this architecture and effort of public – private partnership, it would enhance the tourism by becoming a picture perfect spot and make open spaces for the locals to lead a healthier living.
So, coming summer months are going to be fruitful as this would quickly turn out to be the finest location choice for tourists, trekkers, as well as locals. Not only they will be pleased to witness the much lovelier view from the banks of Pichola, with the twin seven-star hotels, the Lake Palace, City Palace, Jag Mandir and Machla Magra all, but will enjoy the compassion in one beautiful panorama.
