City Palace of Udaipur, Udaipur

4.3
#1 of 907 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. Make City Palace of Udaipur a part of your Udaipur vacation plans using our Udaipur road trip site.

  • It is historical palace in udaipur. It will take three to four hours to visi. Palace is very good but entry fees is very high which is not affordable for everyone.  more »

  • The palace itself is quite beautiful but there are too many packages in offer. Getting into the general grounds is 30 rupees but if you wanted to visit the museum then it's an additional 500 rupees. The gardens are quite nice to walk through. The best part was the sunset boat ride to Jag Palace. This is the place to visit, it's the most beautiful site with stunning views and amazing architecture. Definitely recommend doing this trip if you get a chance.
  • Only reviews... City Palace boasts of the wonderful blend of Medieval, European and Chinese Architecture. The Palace has various towers, domes and arches, which add to the flavor of heritage site. Towering on the banks of Pichola Lake, City Palace is truly a feast to the eyes. City Palace is a marvelous assortment of courtyards, pavilions, terraces, corridors, rooms and hanging gardens. Encircled by fortifications, this imposing Palace is wholly built in granite and marble.
