Udaipur's famous Garden of the Maidens was founded in the 18th century by Maharana Sangam Singh for the 48 young ladies-in-waiting who were sent to the royal house as dowry. Back then, men were forbidden entrance when the queens and their ladies-in-waiting came to relax (though the king and his buddies still found their way in). The garden is planted with exotic flowers and themed fountains that have carved pavilions and monolithic marble elephants and the whole spectacle
is quite an eyeful. The fountains don't have pumps: designed to take advantage of gravity, they run on water pressure from the lakes. If the fountains are not working, ask one of the attendants to turn them on. The pavilion opposite the entrance houses a small children's science center. For some touristy fun, you can dress up in traditional Rajasthani garb and have your picture snapped by a local photographer.
