City Palace of Udaipur, Udaipur

4.3
#1 of 802 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.

  • It's a sprawling palace so expect to expend a lot of physical effort checking out the whole thing but it's worth a visit if you find yourself in Udaipur. We hired a guide at the gate who showed us aro...  more »
  • The palace is an example of the indulgence of royalty, quite beautiful to look at. But there are no information plaques anywhere in the palace explaining the significance of the rooms or architecture....  more »

  • History at it's best. Extremely well maintained palace. Huge garden, amazing museum. One part of the museum have only different musical instruments,other have loads of silver article. Couldn't believe my eyes to see table,chair even children's toys made out of pure silver. Just an amazing experience.
  • Another wonderful piece of architecture. What a work have been done here. 1 can spend at least 2 hr here. Well maintained place and worth of every minute you spend inside. Wonderful collection of things. Do visit the government museum inside. It has also some good collection of items. Stunning glass works inside too.
  • It has many great spots to acknowledge but, it doesn't have anything special to be proud of. It has all the things that you find local fort around you but atmosphere all around is very soothing. They are not many spots to have snack as they are charging a great fee. Overall it's been a okay experience from me. But you can get far better experience at Amer fort (Jaipur).
  • One of the biggest palace in India. Must visit place for family and friends. It's very big palace, so it will take minimum 2 hours time. If you want to chill and take lot of photographs, then it will take more time 😊 Better to go in afternoon after your lunch. The entry ticket is Rs 330 per adult, so ensure you have 3 hours time to explore well and utilise to the fullest 😀 Well, it's really amazing to do photography and at the same time the history of this palace is interesting, so ensure you get the official guide assigned to your group. They will take min of Rs 300/- Overall, I just loved this place and enjoyed it thoroughly !!
  • City Palace is a mind blowing awesome location filled with heritage, traditions, great antic collections, beautiful paintings, rare musical instruments, rare exhibits of ancient Gods, silver and gold ornament displays and many more. This Palace is full of amusements, it takes a whole day to cover the entire premises. The view from the top of Palace is worth watching and the lake which surrounds the Palace has a boat riding facility, it gives a golden opportunity to feel the warmth and luxury of the Kings and Queens had in their times!
