What Makes It Awesome?

If you’re the kind of person who loves to immerse herself in the culture of a place you’re visiting, then you have to visit the cenotaph complex in Udaipur (Ahar). The complex has over 300 cenotaphs scattered in a huge compound commemorating the lives of the kings of Mewar. The place has a time warp kind of feel to it, because you’re among so many monuments dating back to 4 centuries ago but you can also see new buildings all around you. Ahar is very much in the city, barely a few km from the city center, but rarely explored. It is a great place to visit with your camera(only phone allowed) and maybe wear colourful clothes to get great photos. Make sure you go with someone though, it is a bit isolated and can be intimidating.

What Could Be Better?

The place isn’t well maintained in most parts, but deserves so much attention and care.
