If you have read my travel posts earlier. you know my excitement for touristy spots isn't significant. These spots fall in my less important list and what takes over are the places less spoken about. However, I wanted to visit this famous touristy spot at Udaipur, with bells on: Saheliyon ki Bari or "Courtyard of the maidens.Don't be surprised, I am not going to lie that I was saddened to see the sorry state in which this heritage structure was in and it was no fairy-tale, like i expected it to be. Though some parts of the garden still oozed some charm, thanks to the well kept parts of this place. In pictures across the world wide web, this beautiful place looked like a dream- dressed in the prettiest cover of Pink & Magenta. The king had built this garden away from the palace so that the queen could enjoy it with her maidens. I couldn't wait at the thought of getting a style post shot here. Inspired by all online touristy tales, I was looking forward to visit the Saheliyon Ki Bari or Courtyard of the maidens . I went in, realized it was too crowded to shoot in, spent exactly 15 mins beating the crowd ,to get these shots while it drizzled to our surprise. And then we ran out, like literally, heaving a sigh of relief. Moss had covered the most beautiful part of this garden, I didn't even shoot. The water might not have been recycled for a while and its stench was unbearable.This story could have been different if only the govt chose to show some more love besides the visitors who mercilessly scatter it with waste. But yes, its a beautiful garden. Hope its restored to its glory soon!
