There wouldn’t be another city in India that has so much historic reminiscent in it other than the city of Udaipur in the state of Rajasthan. From palaces to memorials, the city is filled with royal architecture. Many of these structures have been taken over by Hotel groups, but however, remain the same transcendent beauty.

Here are a few places that your Udaipur Tourism must have.

1. City Palace

Built in over 400 years by the rulers of the Mewar dynasty, coinciding with the establishment of the city by King Udai Singh II. The architecture showcases great mixture of both Rajasthani and Mughal styles, the building is still considered the largest in its style in the country. A little less than 5 km away from the main city, the flamboyant palace stands at an area of 5 acres as a symbolic representation of the royalty of the city of Udaipur. This is the crown jewel of Udaipur tourism.

Timing – 9:30 am – 5:30 pm

2. Jagdish Temple

A two storey mandapa temple built on a tall terrace; it was completed in the year, 1651, with Lord Jagdish as the main deity. It is the highest structure in all of Udaipur and the spire of the temples is said to overlook the entire city of Udaipur. It is located in the vicinity of the city palace.
