Create an itinerary including City Palace of Udaipur
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.

  • The world is filled with mind blowing man made historical sites and wonders out there. Over the thousands of years of human history, we’ve produced some pretty amazing stuff, even if, sadly, not all of it has latest until today. With many breathtaking and incredible historical sites built by ancient civilizations, literally historical places have soul..
  • Experience was nice. Its good to see such good architecture which was built so many year ago. It took 2-3 hours to completely see the palace area. Beautiful place for photography. Definitely worth of time. To enjoy this place I will suggest you to take guide with you to understand significance of various arts, crafts and other heritage. You can enjoy amazing view of Udaipur City and lakefront.
