The third one is the Udaipur Solar Observatory, considered to be one of the best solar reserves in Asia.

The lake is flanked by a well-established road on one side and hilly mountains on the other. You will be offered stunning views of the lake, if you happen to drive through Moti Magri road, Fateh Sagar drive and Rani Road. Evenings here take on a different charm with a thousand sparkling lights and the busy chatter of tourists and locals.
