Do you know why Udaipur is famous as a white city? This is the big reason

Whether it is the pink city or Venice in the east, each city has a different name because of its color, history and uniqueness. 
There are many cities in India that are known not only for their name but also for their work and 
history . As Jaipur is known as the Pink City, but why? Very few people know this. In the next slides, let us know about some of the famous cities of India and their different names.

Pink City- Jaipur

The largest state of India in terms of area is Rajasthan and the capital of that state is Jaipur. The city was founded by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh (II) in 1727 and is named after him. In the year 1876, Prince Albert Edward of Wales came to Jaipur and at his reception Maharaja Ram Singh painted the whole city in pink. The city has been known as the Pink Town ever since and many ancient buildings are still painted in this color.

Golden City- Jaisalmer

Located in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan, the town of Jaisalmer is famous for its desert safaris and magnificent forts. The fort is made of yellow sandstone and when the evening light falls on the fort, it is covered with a golden glow. This is why it is also called the Fort of Sonar. Also the ancient buildings here are made of this yellow sandstone. Hence, it has been dubbed the Golden City. At the same time, Amritsar is also called the Golden City because of its famous Golden Temple.

White City- Udaipur

Udaipur was founded by Maharana Pratap's father Maharana Uday Singh in 1559. It is also called the Venice of the East due to its many beautiful lakes and is visited by a large number of tourists from home and abroad every year. There are many unique marble structures here and this is why the city has been dubbed the White City.

Silver City- Drama

Located in Odisha, this ancient city is situated at the confluence of the Mahanadi and its tributary Kathjuli. In the Middle Ages this was the capital of the state of Odisha. Silver, ivory and brass ornaments made of Mughal filigree art are the city's heritage. This ornament is world famous for its stunning design. Hence it has also been given the Silver City sub.
