  • Located in the middle of the city, quiet close to everything. I loved visiting this temple. You should do it during day and night, 2 different experiences. I love to see it with colors and when there are people praying. The crafts shop in the temple is worth visiting and you might find interesting things to buy also
  • The temple has beautiful sculptured walls on the outside. There's not much to see on the inside; people sit down on the floor talking pretty much about anything (nothing spiritual, whatsoever). I was approached by a guy saying he's the temple priest and he invited me in a workshop in the temple courtyard, to see some artwork of what he said it was the local art school. Later on I realized the miniatures he showed me can be found anywhere in Udaipur, at lower prices. He can also offer miniature carvings.
  • Nice temple with good architecture. I visited this place in December. Nearby this temple there are variety of shops for shopping.

  • Udaipur Udaipur was founded in 1559, Maharana Udai Singh II in the fertile circular Girwa Valley to the southwest of Nagda, on the Banas River. The city was established as the new capital of the Mewar kingdom. This area already had a thriving trading town, Ayad, which had served as capital of Mewar in the 10th through 12th centuries The Girwa region was thus already well-known to Chittaud rulers who moved to it whenever the vulnerable tableland Chittaurgarh was threatened with enemy attacks. Maharana Udai Singh II, in the wake of 16th century emergence of artillery warfare, decided during his exile at Kumbhalgarh to move his capital to a more secure location. Ayad was flood-prone, hence he chose the ridge east of Pichola Lake to start his new capital city, where he came upon a hermit while hunting in the foothills of the Aravalli Range. The hermit blessed the king and guided him to build a palace on the spot, assuring him it would be well protected. Udai Singh II consequently established a residence on the site. In November 1567, the Mughal emperor Akbar laid siege to the venerated fort of Chittor. To protect Udaipur from External attacks, Maharana Udai Singh built a six kilometre long city wall, with seven gates, namely Surajpole, Chandpole, Udiapole, Hathipole, Ambapole, Brahmpole and so on. The area within these walls and gates is still known as the old city or the walled city.
