A painstaking research was conducted by students from France and Udaipur on the heritage and infrastructure of Udaipur. Conducted over 12 days in February and collated into an insightful presentation at the Durbar Hall, the research enlightened the audience on the historical significance of the city proposing avenues for increased tourism and employment. The topnotch officials were all ears to how the students perceive the city and are beaming with suggestions to safeguard its heritage. Proposals were put forward to introduce a ‘Heritage Walk’ on the paths heading towards Jagdish Temple and City Palace, for one.
