On 22nd morning I went to Nathdwara temple which is 15 kms by bus at Rs. 30 a ticket. This temple is devoted to Lord Krishna and I had a good darshan here. One should keep a few hours for this visit as the temple doesn't have fixed timings and can open late for a darshan. It is especially unpredictable around festivals.In the evening we visited the Sajjangarh Palace aka Monsoon Palace. It is located on a steep hill and here you can enjoy the sunset with the Aravalis in the background and a beastly view of Udaipur. I wish to go back during monsoons and take in this view again. Udaipur is said to be especially captivating and charming during the monsoons.On our return we went shopping to the local markets on Lal Ghat Road. I saw beautiful miniature 'pichwai' paintings which Udaipur is famed for, silver jewellery, rajasthani skirts, juttis, leather bound books and ittar. I bought a paid of silver enamel jhumkas as a memory from my trip.
