Udaipur Tours

UdaipurUdaipur is the city of sunrise. It is a city replete with beautiful lakes, marble palaces, landscaped gardens and ancient temples. The city has five magnificent palaces - City Palace, Jag Niwas, Jag Mandir, Laxmivilas and Monsoon Palace. The palaces exude with tales of heroism and valor of the Rajputs.

In the past, Udaipur was the capital of Mewar. Sishodiya Maharana Guhil founded Udaipur in 568AD and the Mewar dynasty is the oldest in the world, which has ruled for 76 generations.

After being defeated by Akbar, Maharana Uday Singh built the city on the banks of Pichola in 1569. Lake Pichola is located to the South West of the city and is surrounded by walls. Though the wall has been overlapped by the expansion of the city, nonetheless the ruins still remind visitors about the gallantry of the Ranas.



The largest palace of Udaipur is the City Palace, which used to be the winter retreat of the Maharaja. This Palace is made of granite and legend has it that in 1559 Maharana Udai Singh after getting assurance from Sage Harit that he would never be defeated by the enemies, built this palace. From that time onwards different Maharaja's built their own exclusive Mahals within the palace.

There is also the Jagadish Temple built way back in 1651 AD by Maharaja Jagat Singh in the Indo-Aryan style. This temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Miniature paintings depict the drinking of poison by Princess Krishna Kumari. In the Krishna villa there are exquisite statues.


The beautiful Gulab Bag located in a sprawling 100 acres of land is another attraction of Udaipur. Naolakhya Bhawan, Victoria Hall, Saraswati Bhawan and Kamal Jalab are the main attractions of this palatial complex. The magnificent Jagnivas Palace is set in an enchanting setting surrounded by waters and hills. On a moonlit night, the palace looks like a ship floating on water.



The Indian Folk Art Center is another place worth visiting. It is an international museum with a rich collection of paintings, royal attires, jewelry, dolls and folk music instruments. The puppet shows are very popular with tourists. The Rural Craft Complex - "Shilpagram" where artisans of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Goa and Maharashtra display their wares is a must see site in Udaipur. The complex has intriguing Goanese houses, Rajasthan desert houses, Kutch cottages all of which attract tourists in large numbers.

Fateh Sagar is an enchanting lake and the Nehru Park besides the lake is absolutely marvellous. The 150 feet high fountain is a treat to the eyes. Regular boat services are available from Moti Magri Ghat, which takes visitors to the Nehru Park.
