City Palace, Udaipur (Rajasthan)

A jewel in the crown of the city of Udaipur, City Palace is the true representation of the rich culture and grandeur of the region. As you set foot in the city of lakes, the first vew would be of the magnificent palaces like the City Palace, splendid havelis and of course glistening lakes. Comprising a series of palaces, this sprawling haveli cum museum is one of the most spectaular attractions to marvel at in the state of Rajasthan. The palace conducts an annual World Living Heritage Festival in order to preserve the rich culture and heritage of India.

History of City Palace

Immerse yourself  in the history of Mewar and its royal emeperors, and grab a chance to delve into the majesty of this place. Though, the construction of the City Palace started in the year 1559, the work continued for over four and a half centuries. Hence, the architecture of the palace has British and Mughal influences. Eventually, the City Palace was opened as a museum to the public in the year 1969 post independence in order to generate income for royal rulers. The palace is now under the process of getting converted into a world-class museum.  

Architecture of City Palace

Built on a hilltop, the City Palace, Udaipur is surmounted by towers, cupolas, and balconies. The facade of this palace is around 244 meters long and 30.4 meters high. Explore this palace for a panoramic view of this city, and have a mesmerizing experience. What’s more? At the City Palace, you will get to view a number of royal palaces inside the complex. Each of these palaces has its own architectural brilliance as it blends Mughal and Rajputana architecture. Stroll around the Fateh Prakash Palace and view luxury artifacts like crockery, dressing tables, crystal chairs and others. You can view more crystal and porcelain items in Ruby Palace or Manak Mahal.

Attractions of City Palace

Entrance and Torans: As you explore this magnificent attraction, you can view plenty of gates at the City Palace that are called "Pols". The main entrance gate is the 'Bara Pol', then there is the triple arched gate called 'Tripolia'. If you walk in between these gates, you will see eight marble arches or ‘Toranas’. When you cross the 'Tripolia' gate, you will enter the 'Hathi Pol'.

Manek Chowk: One of the most recongnizable features of the City Palace is Manek Chowk. This sprawling grassy courtyard was earlier used for public meetings, horse cavalry, ceremonial processions, and other events and festivals. This courtyard now houses shops for books, clothing, and souvenirs. It also has restaurant named the Palki Restaurant.

Ganesh Deodhi: Ganesh Deodhi is an ornate ideal of Lord Ganesh, sculptured from marble. As the assembly hall opens to Ganesh Chowk, the beautiful sculpture with its fine glass inlay work leaves everyone spellbound.

Besides the above attractions, there are a few of other places that might entice you. If you are an art lover, then Bhim Vilas has some unique miniature paintings that portray the story of Lord Krishna and Radha. Another artistic piece of work is the Sheesh Mahal that has some intricate mirror work.  Next, head to the Krishna Vilas housing miniature paintings that depict games, royal articles, and festivals of the raja-maharajas. At the Chini Chitrashala, you will be floored by the majestic Chinese and Dutch ornamental tiles. Do also visit the Dilkusha Mahal that is known as the ‘Palace of Joy’ due to its wall paintings and murals. And, pay your reverences at the Jagdish Temple in this palace.

    Beautiful experience. Best thing about Ganesham Tours is their knowledge of locations in Rajasthan. Saurabh from Ganesham helped me improving my itenary by adding few places that I didn't even hear from any other agent. His response on my request for changes in hotels was very swift and smooth. O

    S's 3 days trip to Udaipur

    Overall it was a good trip.. but the thing is that... You guys should not include places.. which are closed.. for example.. Nehru park/ photo booth is closed for the past 1.5 years.. how you guys are not updated about this thing that it has been already closed... Also if certain places are closed in
    Sunday or certain days.. ideally the driver or the travel agent should inform us previously that these places will be closed on this day.. so kindly cover these all in the other day... How you guys are not keeping a check on these things? @traveltoexploreprivat please keep in mind these things before making an itenary for your customers.. other than that.. driver was very humble n our agent Naveen was also very co-operative Cultural program in Bagore ki haveli in Udaipur and visit to delwara Jain temple in mount Abu!

    Trip had been superb for us, we were celebrating our first anniversary and things were so well co-ordinated by Mr. Neeraj. A little disappointment from Hotel Raghuvantra as they don't serve non-veg may be its very new property and people don't know much about it. Rest all things made our trip very d
    elightful. In four days so much of sight seeing by Mr. Bhanu, he is most courteous person i have ever met, took care of each and every small things in this trip. I wish we had few more days to stay.. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) Must see Kumbhalgarh fort lgiht and sound show, Folk art gallery & Aquarium in Udaipur, gurushikhar temple in mount abu. Special thanks to Mr. Neeraj and Mr. Bhanu.

    Parvez's 6 days trip to Udaipur

    For a family trip to Udaipur & Mt Abu in Oct 2017, I chose Holiday Season based on the excellent reviews they have had. I must say they lived up to their reputation ! Mr Raj, especially, has been extremely flexible and helpful, even in case when we had to reschedule a day last minute. The hotels and
    travel arrangements provided were equally good especially Vishnupriya and Janak Niwas in Udaipur. Will heartily recommend Holiday Season and services of Mr Raj to anyone travelling with family for well-planned, reasonably priced and comfortable trip ! Parvez A M Mumbai
