4.1/5 based on 5,000+ reviews on the web
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. Our Udaipur trip itinerary builder makes visiting City Palace of Udaipur and other Udaipur attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Definitely worth visiting if you are at Udaipur. But do visit during winters otherwise it's very hot and it takes at least 2 hours to see the entire Palace. Weekends get crowded so it maybe tough for ...  read more »
  • A well worthwhile place to visit, be warned of plenty of stairs and be aware of certain areas where you must pay to take photos. There are areas where you can pay 250inr and they give you a pass. It i...  read more »
  • This place is good for experiencing the royal life across centuries. This palace was built by Maharanas (kings) across centuries and almost every king made some changes to the palace. But the ticket p...  read more »
  • What a gr8 place to see in India.I have never seen a palace with such a beauty.Omg the cleaniness is at its height.The road outside the palace will give you the feel that you are in venice or somewhere else in a foreign land.That is why Udaipur is better called as "The Venice of the East".
  • This is the palace where the royal kings used to live. Man Singh was the last king lived here. Half of the palace is open to public and the other half is where the princess and her mother lives now. The palace has museums and showcases for handicrafts. A beautiful palace in true sense which remind of those royal days.
  • Enter into the palace and feel like King :-) Very well maintained Palace and the Antique collections. Hiring a guide is recommended to get the best information about the Royal Palace.
  • A royal palace tour sets up your mood for the day, exquisite artwork and an architectural marvel of the time... The light show was a little over priced for what was received.. Hence the 4 stars.
  • We visited the City Palace on April 22, 2016 and hired a guide to help us understand the historic value of the monument. At the end of the museum tour, the guide led us to a saree shop Mahesh Art. The address is Mahesh Art, The Arts Center, Manak Chowk, City Palace, Udaipur We were shown sarees and told that the technology has been rewarded by the government. They told us that if we pay 50 % of the value, they can courier us the stuff and the remaining payment can be done when the parcel is received. We paid 4000 rupees and we were assured that the courier would reach us in 3 days time. Its 20 days now and the courier is yet to be received !!! Consistent calling is not helping. Mr. Dinesh refuses to attend the calls and the courier people in Udaipur and Kolkata (numbers given by Mr. Arif from City Palace shop) have no idea about the packet. They have given me 3 track numbers (id) but none exist !!! We feel cheated and helpless. This being a shop in the government premises, this is really shocking !!!
