As we took a lot of time in the fort we could just go the temples nearby and the main attraction of it was Jagadish Temple which had pooja going for half an hour. Felt blessed, truly!Went to Bagore Ki Haveli in the end but that was closed so just sat by the lake for some time and came back to room. Luckily as they had a cow shed downstairs we were able to have cow's milk during our tenure there.
- The main shrine is surrounded by four other smaller shrines of Lord Ganesha, Sun Lord, Goddess Shakti, and Lord Shiva.
1. Time to visit - anytime
Started our day with some spiritual vibesLuckily the weather was so so so pleasant and the cool breeze was making the dark cloudy day more romantic. If you are not lucky as us you can get a bike or a scooter to roam around, and I will suggest a two wheeler only instead of a cab because the old city has narrow streets and it will be easy with a two wheeler. And you can easily rent a bike or scooter just for rupees 250 to 350 per day. first of all we reached to Jagdish Ji Temple, its in the old city. Even you can walk by these narrow streets and trust me you will love it, even me and my husband walked so long and there is something in this old city you will find it so refreshing and calm. You will find some lovely cafe here on streets if you feel hungry feed your stomach or just grab a tea. after that we reached Amet Haveli followed by Bagore ki haveli it is situated on the cost of lake Pichola. After that we went to Maharana Pratap Monument, Museum just beside the monument. We saw the models of different Forts.
