Half-day tour of Udaipur


| May 15, 2020

Udaipur's sights are best visited on foot with the most impressive being the City Palace, Jagdish Temple and the gardens of Saheliyon ki Bari. The City Palace is the largest palace complex in Rajasthan, comprising several buildings added to throughout the centuries by subsequent maharajas. Perhaps the most beautiful are the Moti Mahal, with its mirror inlay, and the Chini Mahal with its iridescent tilework. At the nearby Jagdish Temple there is an impressively carved image of Lord Vishnu, to whom the temple is dedicated. Udaipur is also famous for its traditional miniature paintings depicting incidents from Rajput or Mughal history and legends from the Hindu Puranas. A visit to a miniature painting studio offers the opportunity to see several fine examples of these works of art. A walk through the colourful sprawling markets in the Old City showcases shops selling a myriad of wares including embroidered and block printed fabrics, jewellery and carved wooden artefacts. Share:
