City Palace of Udaipur

City Palace is a name that rings a bell of amazing culture and great architecture. It is one of the must things to do in Udaipur. The palace is located in the centre of the city and is a combination of amazing courtyards, buildings and gardens. Jai Singh was the Maharaja to build the outer most wall of City Palace. However, there has been various restorations and adaptations in the following centuries till date. There are various buildings within the palace, many of which were built in the 20th century. Where architecture is concerned, it is a beautiful mix of Rajasthani and Mughal cultures. The entry gate, Virendra Pol leads to the Mubarak Mahal which has a colonial look and a mix of Islamic, European and Rajput style of architecture. Today, this place is a museum that shows various exhibits starting from royal shawls to costumes. Some other places to explore here are diwan-e-khas, diwan-i-am, the armoury and Chandra Mahal.

We went to City Palace first which didn't wow me but had the most exuberant entrance fee. We had to shell out 800 rupees, our combined room rent for a day to just enter the fort. We missed the exit route so mom and sister were pissed by it.

Our flight arrived early so we hired a cab and arrived at the hotel. After breakfast we decided to walk till the City Palace, as it was near by only. As we were walking through the ancient and narrow alleys, we saw old houses with Rajasthani architecture with paintings on the exterior walls.On reaching the City palace we bought the tickets and wandered through its beautiful rooms and apartments. The Mor Chowk was the most beautiful place. One can view the Pichola lake from that part of the palace. The crystal gallery(great collection of crystals) left me speech less. Almost everything in that gallery was made up of crystals.Later we visited the Saheliyon-ki-Bari (a major garden and a popular tourist space in Udaipur). Locals says that this garden was built for the queens of the royal family. One can also visit the Lok kala Mandal for the puppet show. But we kept our evening for this very famous show performed by the local artists of the Udaipur. This show includes dances and plays from different region of the Rajasthan. If One in not intrested in this show than you can take a boat ride at 5 PM on the picturesque lake – Pichola Lake & enjoy the beautiful sunset at famous Jagmandir Island and later can watch the famous light & sound show at performed at the City Palace only.

(6:10 pm)Walked a little upside down in palace road to see the nearby street, while roaming, we reached a mall nearby. We went to the one who had small shops nearby, due to the high price of goods; we headed back to City Palace Road. Then while walking, we saw a small leather shop with an uncle running a sewing machine; it was a small shop, which is just 400 mtr or 500 mtr from our hostel. After much bargaining, we all took a leather bag for ourselves.In this way, our trip to Udaipur also ended; in night at 8:00 pm , we took bus from Udaipur to Ujjain, which is our next destination.
