City Palace of Udaipur, Udaipur

4.3
#1 of 851 in Museums in India
A lakeside conglomeration of structures merged into a fort-like whole, City Palace of Udaipur represents one of the most iconic and popular attractions in the entire state. You'll immediately notice the palace's crowning glory as you approach--a lengthy and intricate white facade that stretches for 244 m (801 ft) along the lakefront, complete with numerous balconies and verandas. Begun in 1599 by the founder of the city, the palace eventually grew into a semi-connected complex of similar structures. Wander the extensive grounds and explore the numerous courtyards, halls, and elephant-fighting pits within, long used by the ruling family still in possession of the property. Don't miss stopping by the palace's museum to learn more about the history of the region and the fortress itself.

  • By far the best city palace i visited in India. Wide area, well preserved building. Allow to spend 3hours there.  more »
  • A museum, old sculptures, and some history. Not my cup of tea so am not rating it as one of the best. But since this is 'the place ' in Udaipur to visit. Don't miss it. I found it overrated.  more »

  • Emerge and greatest story of the fort and One of the best forts in Rajasthan. It's enormous, spectacular and obviously of great historic importance. It's beauty lies in it's very foundation. Well maintained place and some of the part is converted in to hotel. If you are willing to visit Rajasthan then I would recommend you to visit this place or else you will definitely miss something. Happy tourism.
  • Its worth visiting. The palace is amazing, the ticket price is expensive as it is maintained by private property(king's) but the money is worth it. Also the guides&guards are well aware of the palace and are friendly and kind. The view from the palace is worth watching. Also is maintained properly

  • Awesome palace. Very well maintained by the administration. Tickets are too high 350 but justified with drinking water supply at intermittent location of this vast heritage. A must visit place in lifetime to get a feel of our own Indian rich heritage and not from invaders' heritage. Suggestion: important places of the palace needs ro be marked with detail boards so that visitor do not have to hire guide for the information.
  • Worth the visit. So much to learn about our history and past. And to witness the architectural creativity that existed all this years ago without any modern technology is an eye opener. Even though I'm not into history as such, I am glad I came here and this place and it's beauty will stay with me forever.
