Udaipur Tourist Attractions

The City Palace is a very large complex, all originally built by the Mewar royal family over several hundred years. The site now contains several museums, two hotels, and a few restaurants in addition to the maharana's family residence. You can take tours of the palace, which is impressive although in a state of some disrepair. The stupendous collection of miniature paintings alone is worth the price of admission. You'll also see dozens of courtyards and rooms, many decorated with lovely detailed carving and paintings, and hear about the history of the family and the palace itself.

  Sajjangarh (Monsoon Palace)

In the late 18th century Sajjangarh or the fort of Sajjan was built by its namesake Maharana Sajjan Singh (1874-1884). About 5km west of Udaipur City it is at a height of 3100 feet above sea level and 1100 feet over the Fateh Sagar Lake. The palaces of the fort look like a tiara on the head of a rocky hill, the one on which the fort proudly stands. The rocky crag is massive and has an excellent view of the surrounding hills, pristine lakes and snow-white palaces. The fort is crowned by the Monsoon Palace, which also has a panoramic view of the lakes and palaces and the city below. The fort was built by Maharana Sajjan Singh as an observatory to watch the progress of the monsoon clouds over the surrounding areas. It is said that the Rana had planned to build a nine storey observatory here but his dreams remained unfulfilled owing to his untimely death at the age of 26. Towards the left of the Monsoon Palace is Shikarbadi or the Khas Odi, a shooting box that lies at the southern end of the lake Pichola. It was built by Sir Sajjan Singh between 1874 and 1884 and now has been converted into a small palace with exquisite surroundings that can be approached both by car and boat. The boat trip is recommended more as it gives an extraordinary view from the south end of the lake.
