~ Udaipur City Palace quick facts ~
🕍It’s huge! You’ll need at least 3-4 hours to see what it has to offer. Forget of high heels (or any heels to be precise) – a pair of comfortable walking shoes will do the job on steep staircases and narrow passages.
🕍It was constructed over a period of nearly 4 centuries, with each generation of the Mewar dynasty having something new to add (therefore the size).
🕍Built atop a hill, the palace overlooks the stunning Pichola lake and a number of smaller palaces and temples associated in pop culture with James Bond movie “Octopussy” (I haven’t seen it, by the way).
🕍The architectural style is the mix of Rajasthani and Mughal patterns.
🕍Although beautifully decorated, the numerous rooms of the complex are very tiny – not something you’d expect from a royal palace, eh?
🕍If you favor stained glass windows, mosaic murals, intricate doorways and stone latticework, it’s definitely your place!
🕍The best views of the palace are from the Pichola lake. The boat ride is a bit pricy (Rs 480), but it’s totally worth it.
🕍If you’re only curious about the exterior, there is no need to buy a Rs 300 ticket to enter the museum complex – they provide an option of wandering around the outer premises for Rs. 30.
🕍Visiting during the monsoon was a wonderful experience – yes, it rained occasionally, but the crowd was tolerable and at times even nonexistent!
