City Palace And City Palace Government Museum - Review

The city palace is a beautiful construction from the era of the royals in Rajasthan. Sitting amongst the several palaces that have been built around Lake Pichola, this one is a gorgeous sight to see.

This palace might be one of the largest of its kind with intricately carved archways and delicate architecture. The influence of both Mughal as well as Rajasthani styles is quite apparent. It was built by the rulers of the Mewar kingdom. The Badi Mahal is especially stunning. Not only is the architecture quite beautiful, it also holds a pond of sorts within it. The Mor chowk has pretty stained glass work done in peacock motifs. The City palace is certainly a treat for the eyes. It is a surreal experience to walk the corridors and get an idea of what majesty the Rajasthani royals lived in.

If you have the time, you can also view all the surrounding palaces that are built in similar styles but with different elements. You could easily spend an entire day exploring this beautiful area. Be sure to try and find out more about the many tales and stories associated with the royals from locals or guides. There are a few ghost stories too.

City Palace Government Museum is basically a large chunk of the main city palace that has been the pride of Udaipur for centuries now. The part that is open and has been converted into the City Palace Museum is full of beautiful rooms, adorned with mirrors and royal tiles that will take you back into history in no time. This palace was built after Amar Singh I was born. It took almost 400 years to be completed and the intricate details will show you why.

  • One of the best forts in Rajasthan. It's enormous, spectacular and obviously of great historic importance. It's beauty lies in it's very foundation. Well maintained place and some of the part is converted in to hotel. If you are willing to visit Rajasthan then I would recommend you to visit this place or else you will definitely miss something. Happy tourism.

  • Visited this beautiful place in udaipur last year and each and every thing in that Place has its unique story. Luckily he had a guide with us and he was knowledgeable enough to thoroughly guide us about the history of the palace and the kingdom. Beautifully built and surrounded by such scenic attractions. If you visit hire a guide and they will guide you about the glorious history of the palace. Happy touring

  • It is definitely a great place to visit but you may want to keep below things in mind. - It is in the centre of the city. And by this I mean, you have to pass through extremely narrow roads. - Avoid going there in your 4 wheelers. - Fort do have their own 4 wheel parking for which they charge Rs. 250/- - And then again you have to park it under the sun. - Entry fees to see the palace is Rs. 300/- You will have to keep around 2hours to take a good look at the whole of palace. Good thing about it is that it is very nicely maintained. They also have a restaurant/cafe inside the palace. At places they also have toilets and facility for drinking water.

  • I always love visiting this place and I feel like this is the best maintained palace I have ever seen. Very clean and efficiently managed. Worth the price. Audio guide books are very good.
