This has to be one of the hidden treasures of India. We took a car journey for a day out of Udaipur to Dungapur. It has a 12 Century Palace which from the outside looks like it is about to fall down, but inside it is the jewel in the crown. It has the original 12 Century wall paintings all over it, as well as mirrored inlay rooms and none of it is roped off to the tourists. Not that there were any tourists there we were the only ones. Dungapore itself is renowned for it's stonemasons and it is set on the most beautiful lake. We wished that we had booked into the luxury hotel - the only hotel there - for one night rather than having to go all the way back to Udaipur. We have picked out some of the best photo's but the whole thing is too beautiful for words.
The Kings CupboardWhen we opened a cupboard in the kings bedroom this is what we found. It is paintings of the Karma Sutra from the 12 Century, they have never seen daylight and therefore in the most beautiful condition.
