Udaipur’s City Palace is the most visited tourist attraction of Udaipur. It was built over a period of nearly 400 years, with contributions from several rulers of the Mewar dynasty. To safeguard and preserve the cultural heritage and traditions of the people of Mewar, the City Palace Museum was set up in 1969.
On World Tourism Day which is seen on September 27th, City Palace Museum launched their Universal Access Plan in order to make tourism accessible to all visitors, including the differently abled and senior citizens.
The plan will facilitate easy access through the museum’s narrow corridors, small gates and pathways which were previously not designed for a modern museum. The museum has also been equipped with ramps, lifts and audio-visual rooms.
This is definitely going to bring a positive change in terms of tourism especially for differently abled and senior citizens who earlier found it inconvenient to visit the Palace! 🙂
