At the City of Lakes – Udaipur

|| City Palace, Udaipur||

To the city of lakes and the romantic city of Rajasthan, City Palace stands out as one of the most splendid havelis and a perfect wonder. And Elegance of the Mewar dynasty, it is an unmatched symbol of prestige, status, and royalty.
The day we reach Udaipur, we could see the palace from the roof of the hotel, glowing in the dusk of the evening.

Being sure of its attractiveness, we headed the very next day afternoon. The best time to catch the saffron rays over the architecture. The main entrance is on the road towards Jagdish Mandir.

at Manek Chowk

The palace holds many hotels. One would cross them and arrive at the Manek Chowk. From there, the Museum starts. The gate to enter the main Palace is very simple, but once inside, it’s all architectural grandeur everywhere.

British Field Gun – a World War I vintage

P.S. Overall, one might require around 3 to 3.5 hours to explore the Palace cum Museum properly, as it is so well maintained and well informed.

Overall I would say City Palace of Udaipur must be in your itinerary for the experience of grandeur and glamour that one gets in visiting the palace.
