Saheliyon-ki-Bari or the 'Garden of the Maids of Honour', so
called because the royal ladies came here for a stroll, is a well laid out
garden, with extensive lawns and shady walks. With flowerbeds lined along
the picturesque park, this small garden is located on the lakeside of the
second major lake of Udaipur -
Fateh Sagar Lake.
The garden was constructed for forty-eight young ladies-in-waiting sent to the royal house, as part of the dowry. This small ornamental garden was a popular relaxing spot where royal ladies came for a stroll. The garden has many fountains in its four delightful pools, sculpted kiosks and marble elephants Its manicured lawns display a marvellous range of bougan villea and five fountains release showers in tune with their titles namely, 'Welcome'; 'Raining Cats and Dogs'; 'Rains in Midnight', 'Rains without Clouds'; 'Gentle Shower in Mid Day'.
The garden is open from 9 AM to 6 PM daily. The charge for turning on the water fountains is a very minimal amount of Rs.2.
