Saheliyon Ki Bari Udaipur
Saheliyon Bari is the most beautiful garden in Udaipur and a major tourist destination. The garden is famous for its green lawn, the art of marble and fountains. The English translation of Saheliyon’s turn means “garden of maids”. This famous garden is situated on the banks of Fateh Sagar Lake, which offers a green backdrop in the dry land of Rajasthan. Gardens of Mades were constructed in the 18th century by Maharana Sangram Singh for the royal women.
According to the legends, the garden itself was designed by the king and he presented this garden to his queen. Actually, the queen was in her marriage with 48 maids. To offer them all, this pleasant garden was made away from the political conspiracies of the court. This patterned garden used to be the popular comfort place for royal women. The queen used to come here to stroll along with her maids and women companions and spend time comfortably.
Due to this fact, the garden got its name. The magnificent architecture of the garden provides a breathing view to any supervisor. This garden is well decorated with its four-water pool, chisel kiosks and marble elephants with many fountains. It is also celebrated for its lotus pool and bird fountain. The lush green lawns, flowerbeds and marble pavilions further enhance the romantic atmosphere of this magnificent garden.
In later years, Maharana Bhupal Singh actually liked this place and made a pavilion of rain fountains. It was thought that with the dancing maids, an illusion of rain dance in the rhythm will be constructed. The Kings used to enjoy the surroundings of the garden and the fountain. These fountains were imported from England and you can trace them with the main reservoir of the garden. The main reservoir has four black marbled kiosks in its corners and there is a white marble kiosk in its center. At the top of the kiosk, these fountains are in the form of sculpture birds which boil the water from its beak which produces the effect of rain.
