UDAIPUR - the best insider tips for vacation, holiday & travel
Udaipur, the City of Lakes, is the capital of the celebrated Sisodas of Mewar in the Rajasthan Indian region. The mesmerizing city is renowned for its palaces, forts, historical architectural treasures, gardens, museums, and the commanding Aravelli ranges at its backdrop making Udaipur a tourist hotspot and a besotted setting for shows and films (James Bond’s Octopussy was filmed here).
The old city and the Udaipur Royal Palace is located near Pichola lake, one of the city’s famous 5 lakes. There is a museum within the palace complex, a crystal gallery, art gallery, a lush garden, stunning halls and villas, and even a hotel. Lake Pichola itself is a sight to behold with two islands that has a gorgeous hotel and a stunning sandstone pavilion; there are boating opportunities here. Just a little up north from the palace is another point of interest called the Jagadish Temple – a 17th century temple that has a huge Lord Vishnu black stone idol with melodious sound of a group of ladies offering songs in the background. There are also many tourist attractions beyond the city centre like the Saheliyon ki Badi or the Garden of the Maids, the tree tiered fountain at Sukhadia Circle, the city Solar Observatory on Fateh Sagar Lake, Ahar Museum of cenotaphs, and Gula Bagh rose garden with a library and zoo.
Tourists enjoy regal leisure activities like horseback riding, camel riding, watching theatre, puppet, and cultural shows. Visiting tribes and villages along the Aravalli foothills and soaring 500 metres high up on Udaipur’s ropeway is also a must try when in Udaipur.
Udaipur has a tropical climate with temperatures averaging from 84-108°F during summertime. Winter temperature gets as low as 37 °F and as high as 86 °F. The best time to visit Udaipur is from Sept-March when the weather is at its fairest.
