The plan today was to go to the main attraction, the City palace. Got ready and left around 8, so that i can grab some quick breakfast on the way. The Jagdish Temple was open, so went inside the temple, absorbed the calmness and left, more motivated to spend the day productively. In the small way just opposite Jagdish temple, there is a small shop, which was selling hot samosas, kachoris and poha. Great food for pretty cheap prices. After filling my tummy with some yummy poha, started my stride towards the city palace.
The city palace gives boat rides to go the lake palace / Jag Mandir. Since the tickets prices increases in the evening, i grabbed the tickets fir morning and went first towards the lake palace. The boat ride through the lake Pichola was one beautiful ride. Only a small portion of the Jag Mandir is open to the public. After spending more than an hour there clicking pictures, i took the boat back to the city Palace.
I would say, this is the most crowded place in the whole of Udaipur. So many people and such a huge palace. But once you actually enter the palace, you'll not be bothered by the crowd, because of the beauty, that the palace is. Its colorful, creative and magnificent. You see the Udaipur city as the white city from the balconies of the Palace. The bright colourful glass windows, is truly like a dream. It took me hours to soak in the palace. Tired and exhausted, but immensely satisfied, i left the palace, in search of some "ghar ka khaana" and found right that at Neelam's restaurant. Its a small place, so keep an eye on boards or ask around(The people of the city are very helpful). After eating till i can't walk, i called it a day and went back to the hostel to get some rest.
Once the sun started going down, i went to the Ambrai ghat, right around the corner from the hostel, to see the beautiful sunset. After the sun actually set, the Laka palace, which gets lit, is a sight to behold in itself.
