Located in the old city of Udaipur, this is again one of the temples you should visit for the craft and interiors. The architecture is something that will surely catch your attention. If you are a historical buff, this is one of the things to do in Udaipur. There are ceremonies and musical shows held most of the times inside the temple. One of the activities to be done here is to feed the squirrels that can be seen in large numbers. It is just a few minutes from Lake Palace and can be combined and planned together. The idols as well as the carvings are quite old as well as has aesthetic value to it. The environment is serene and gives you a relaxed feel away from the hustle- bustle of city life.
Places to stay near Jagdish Temple

Jagdish TempleThe owner of Zostel, as always gave me a valuable advice to go and see the Jagdish Temple which was at stone throws distance from Zostle. I took his advice, the Temple was an iconic place to see. The Bhajans (any song with religious theme or spiritual ideas) being sung by the worshipers gave the place an aura to remember. I took blessing of the God to have a safe ride back home and I left the temple. For lunch I was again advised by the owner to have a meal at Annapoorna bhojnalay.Journey back to Gandhinagar 240 kmsAfter that I waited till the time was right around 2:30 PM cause if I had left at 1 PM I would have been roasted in the heat on the highway. I filled up bike to brim and hit the road. I was able to leave the sub urbs of Udaipur by 3 PM and the initial one and half hour was tough due to heat but the plan to leave late came to my rescue as the shadows got longer, the ferocity of heat also dipped.
Wooooooooowww....yes this was our reaction looking at the crowd. We could find more foreigner's dancing, singing and enjoying the festival than Indians. This shows how India is really "INCREDIBLE". There was a stage show over there,now Holika burning started, the crackers the hustle and bustle, it was all so fun and a joy to watch and the experience.
We skipped other main attractions that our hostel guy suggested like Monsoon palace, lake palace and vintage cars museum. Our hostel was near to the Jagdish temple. This is a small nice temple, worth a visit for its marble carvings and architecture.
Its was our 1std day in Udaipur and v started our city tour with Jagdish Temple. We reached around 11.30 but didn't got darshan as it was "Bhog" time. So one should avoid going between 11 to 12 as they wont get darshan. The carving of temple was superb. After spending some time outside temple we went to "City Palace" which is 5 mins walking distance from temple.
Craft and interiors of the temple is something to be watched for.
A grand example of Indo-aryan architecture, the temple is raised on a tall terrace and was completed in 1651. It attaches a double-storey Mandapa (hall) to a double-story saandhara (with a covered ambulatory) sanctum. The mandapa has another storey tucked within its pyramidal samavarna (bell-roof). Apart from the architectural delight, the complex boasts of small shops selling rajasthani paintings, jewellery and handicrafts.
