Udaipur has several exquisite elements of beauty for it to be known as the Venice of the East. One of them apart from its several large lakes set up front against a backdrop of sprawling hills is the Garden of Maidens or Sahelion Ki Bari.
This famous tourist spot in Udaipur is located just at the banks of the Fateh Sagar Lake, and presents an amazing lush green retreat from the dryness of Rajasthan.
As per legends it was the King Maharana Sangram Singh who built the garden as a gift to his newly wed wife. She had come from her father’s house with 48 young maids and needed a place for them to have a leisurely time.
The story goes that the king Maharana Sangram Singh’s queen received an accompaniment of 48 maidens with her to follow to her in-laws as dowry. These royal ladies required a place to themselves away from political chaos of the court and time away from the watchful eyes of their subjects. So, the king had the garden built as a gift to his wife and her maidens where they could enjoy lovely evening strolls.
