What not to miss in Udaipur

Step aboard the gondola over to the Lake Palace Hotel and enjoy a cocktail overlooking the lake.

 

Or marvel from afar, while dining on the terrace of our favourite lakeside guesthouse: Jagat Niwas Palace cooks the best chicken sagwala and aloo gobi we’ve ever tasted. 



A stay at the stylishly executed Udaivilas on the northern shore of Lake Pichola.

 

Devigarh, 45mins from Udaipur, has embraced the true notion of a boutique hotel: relax in their spa with their divine coffee bean and orange scrub which smells good enough to eat!


 
 

Surrounded by the scenic Aravelli hills, complete with whitewashed buildings, marble palaces, lakeside gardens, temples and haveilis, Udaipur is an enchanting location and regarded by many as the most romantic city in Rajasthan.

The Lake Palace hotel, made famous by the 1983 James Bond film ‘Octopussy’, ‘floats’ on Lake Pichola.  Take a boat trip around the shores to enjoy the 'Venice of India'.
Note: some guide books are out of date and the end of the drought in 2006 has restored the water levels of Lake Pichola to its former glory.

Once the capital of the sate of Mewar, the arts have always played an important role in everyday life.  Part of the City Palace is now a museum with some delightful artifacts including a fascinating collection of Miniature Paintings.

The Mewar festival (March / April) is celebrated with traditional music and dances and a good time to visit.

Udaipur is well-connected in terms of flights to the international gatweays of Mumbai & Delhi in additional to some of the cities within Rajasthan.  However, if you do find yourself traveling by road between Udaipur and Jodhpur, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the splendid Jain temples.  Although one of the largest temple complexes in India, it's the intricately carved detail that is most magnificent.
