Udaipur was the capital of the Rajput kingdom of Mewar, ruled by the Sisodia clan.  The founder of Udaipur was Rana Udai Singh.  In 1568 Udai Singh moved the capital to the site of his residence, the city of Udaipur.  Udaipur remained the capital of the state, which became a princely state of British India in 1818.  After India's Independence in 1947, the Maharaja of Udaipur acceded to the Government of India, and Mewar was integrated into India's Rajasthan state.  The city's pride, the 'Lake Palace' was once a prison.  The gardens of Saheliyon-Ki-Bari were built by Maharana Bhopal Singh.
