Udaipur

The City of Lakes in Rajasthan

Known as the “City of Lakes,” Udaipur is a true gem in the state of Rajasthan, India. Surrounded by the majestic Aravalli Range, this city enthralls visitors with its royal allure, rich history and picturesque scenery. With breathtaking lakes and mountains as its backdrop, Udaipur boasts stunning palaces, a vibrant culture and delicious cuisine. It’s no wonder that it has become a top destination for travelers seeking luxury experiences in India.

Often referred to as the “Venice of the East,” Udaipur is undoubtedly one of India’s most enchanting cities. Its centerpiece, Lake Pichola, is surrounded by the grand City Palace – a sprawling complex featuring stunning Mewar architecture in its palaces, courtyards and gardens. A boat ride on the glistening waters of Lake Pichola is a must-do experience for every visitor to Udaipur. The mystical Jag Mandir and Jag Niwas (also known as the Lake Palace) seem to float gracefully atop the tranquil lake, adding a touch of fairytale magic to this city’s skyline.

Enveloped by hills on three sides and adorned with islands, Fateh Sagar is a serene lake that offers a peaceful retreat amidst nature. The Saheliyon Ki Bari, an enchanting garden filled with fountains, kiosks, and marble elephants, serves as a reminder of the opulent lifestyle of the Maharanis. Udaipur’s architectural beauty can also be seen in the intricately carved Jagdish Temple and the majestic Sajjangarh Palace (Monsoon Palace), which boasts panoramic views of the city and its lakes.

Udaipur is a shopper’s paradise, with bustling markets such as Bada Bazaar and Hathi Pol offering traditional Rajasthani crafts, textiles, and jewelry. For a truly immersive cultural experience, the annual Shilpgram Crafts Fair showcases Rajasthan’s diverse heritage through art, crafts, and performances. Foodies can indulge in the rich flavors of Udaipur’s famous Rajasthani cuisine including dal baati churma, gatte ki sabzi,and the iconic dal kachori. And for a breathtaking dining experience like no other, rooftop restaurants overlooking the city’s stunning lakes and palaces are not to be missed.

The ideal time to plan a trip to Udaipur is during the winter months, from October to March. This period offers pleasant weather and allows for comfortable exploration of the city’s attractions. Many travelers also choose to visit nearby destinations such as Kumbhalgarh (80km) and Mount Abu while in Udaipur. Additionally, the revered Nathdwara temple is located just 60 km away from the city, making it an easy day trip option for tourists.
