Udaipur is a wonderful city with vibrant colors, monuments on the junctions, and traffic because of cities development in progress.
We left the hotel and went directly to the Pichhola Lake to see the view of the palace and have a boat ride. The ride is cheap, 40rs per person in the lake which will take you around Raj Mandir( A restaurant in the middle of the lake) show you the city palace, Udai Villas palace and the other restaurants turned forts. After that 45mins of economical boat ride for time being this word went out from our dictionary.
Udaipur is a place where you can experience the luxury of the indian culture. We went to the city palace of Udaipur. It is where the King resides in one part of the city and the other part is a Museum and a Hotel for the tourist, sorry a very expensive hostel 😝.
DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER !!
The tickets to the palace are very costly entry ticket is of 350 per head to the museum, parking is 200 per vehicle , 750 rs per head for looking into the cara collection, and and and if you are there and want to have a luxurious lunch in the Raj Mandir restaurant it will cost you around 2500 rs per head for a Thali Lunch in there.
We took the museum ticket and went in to the Museum ( if you like history do take a guide along to know what is the palace all about) and it will take around 3hour to see the entire Museum . It is a very big palace made in parts during their regime.
It is the Fort where Maharana Pratap once lived you will se how beautifully they have made and preserved the things there.
It will show how rich and prosperous our country was until we were invaded and looted and slaved by the foreign invaders as we had shovel( kanni) made up of silver 😂😂
Anyways you will spend most of your time in the fort and then coming out of the fort explore the market on th other side of the Palace.
The experience of the palace was amazing and time consuming too. After we went into the Jag mandir restaurant through the fort for our luxury lunch. it is good for one time experience as you won't go to Udaipur very often.
From ater this we went to Saheliyon Ki Bari, Eklingji Temple, which are in the close vicinity to the city around 15km away.
After that we decided to leave Udaipur and as we had explored all the major places and got the best of Udaipur.
So we decided to start for Pushkar, we left Udaipur at around 8 pm in the evening. It's around 280km away and took us 6 hours for the journey , so we reached Pushkar at around 2 am in the morning. There was a small stall of snacks open where some people were having their smoke and chilling so we sat there had something and left to find a hide for the night.
We were not able to locate any hotels that time so we parked our car and lit the coals we carried for borne fire and sat there until it's 5 or 6 am in the morning, we got a hotel and then relaxed for 3hours to start our new day in Pushkar.
