Udaipur City Palace

Banks of Lake Pichola

The Basics

The main part of the palace complex serves as the City Palace Museum, home to a collection of miniatures, weaponry, ceramics, paintings, inlay glass, antiques, and enamel works. Throughout the palace, the windows offer fantastic views of Lake Pichola, particularly when the water level is normal. The property also contains a luxury hotel (the Taj Fateh Prakash Palace) and a variety of small shops selling upscale souvenirs.

Most local tours stop by the Udaipur City Palace along with other top sights.

Full-Day Private City Tour of Udaipur Including Boat Ride in Lake Pichola
The tour was wonderful! Our guide, Ganesh, was incredibly knowledgable and attentive. At times the tour felt a tiny bit rushed but we were able to see and accomplish a lot. Definitely a packed day! I would definitely recommend it to others.

Full-Day Private City Tour of Udaipur Including Boat Ride in Lake Pichola
Our guide, Mann and the driver, Bhagwati, are very good. They come from Nikita Holidays in Agra, who is Raj Sharma, the owner, arranged for us for this private tour in Udaipur. They could explain to us all kind of questions we want to know about Udaipur. Should not miss the city museum and palace also the boat ride in Lake Pichola, whenever you are in Udaipur. We stayed in Udailvilas, where you could see the city palace from the hotel, with all the lights and busy area of the Udaipur.

When to Get There

Typically open daily, the palace is a year-round attraction, though the temperatures in Udaipur are at their most pleasant in the cooler months (roughly November through February). Sound-and-light shows are held every evening, with slightly later start times in the hot spring and summer months.

Wildcard

While many travelers explore the primary museum only, it’s worth paying a little more to check out the Crystal Gallery, inside the Taj Fateh Prakash Palace. Marvel at the beautiful examples of European crystal, much of which was ordered in the late 1800s and left unboxed for more than a century. Along with vases, chandeliers, and other decorative items, you’ll see crystal tables and even a crystal bed.
