  1. Wow, Udaipur and Lake Pichola is just stunning! I l’ve not yet been to India, but I’d love to see this city, and all these incredible temples. I live half the year in Veneto, where Venice is the capital, so it’s nice to see another reference to a water-based city! I can definitely see why Udaipur is a must-see, I just hope I can visit soon!

  2. Udaipur is both beautiful and interesting. The Karni Mata temple sounds like the perfect spot for views of the city and lake . There are so few places that have any kind of cable car in operation. Fun itinerary! Have fun!

  3. I had been to Udaipur a long time ago. But I did not do half of the things on the post here. I would dearly love to go back and check out the intricate architecture on the city palace and of course the serene lake Pichola. The small city has so much to offer for repeat travelers like me:) Will surely come back. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Agree with this itinerary you shared Yukti. A single day is not enough for Udaipur and one can visit a few places only which you already mentioned. I guess one can visit these on Day one and keep the Day two to explore city and street food. at least, I did that (:

  5. I have traveled in Rajasthan extensively but somehow, never got to Udaipur. I think next time, I will make a trip only to be in this beautiful city and the itinerary here seems just perfect. Did not know that there is cruise on Lake Pichola which one could take. That’s awesome. Bagore ki Haveli sounds fascinating and so historic and of course, City Palace Museum is a must. Learning about Sajjan Garh palace for the first time and would love to see it. Saving this guide on Udaipur for our future trip!

    1. Thanks Navita, And I have only traveled to Udaipur in Rajasthan and still looking for other places there. Yes cruise on Lake Pichola is lovely thing to do here.

  6. Looking forward to my trip to this amazing city in the next few weeks. Very helpful and timely read post which gives me some tips on what to do. Unfortunately I’m traveling in the peak season so paying a premium. The architecture is one of the most fascinating and colourful aspect and one I’m looking to capture. A very informative post and thanks. Truely the Venice of the east.
