Photograph from the Curzon Collection: 'Views in Meywar'', of a general view of the city of Udaipur from the Residency, taken by Deen Dayal in c.1890. Udaipur is situated in a valley surrounded by hills and lies mainly to the east of three lakes: the Pichola, Fateh Sagar and the Umaid Sagar. It was founded by Maharana Udai Singh (ruled 1567-72) in the mid-16th century as the fourth and last capital of the Mewar state after the sacking of Chittorgarh, the previous capital. This is a general view from the grounds of the British Residency north-west of the city towards the city skyline and the hills in the distance.
