Ranekpur Jain temple, Khumbhalgarh fort
After a scrumptious breakfast consisting of poha,uttam,parathas we went to Ranakpur Jain temple which is almost 3 hrs from Udaipur.
This temple is known for its perfect symmetry,architecture and marble interiors.
The temple is unique and one feels extremly peaceful in the temple premises.
We also went to Khumbhalgarh fort where we had an adventure which is unforgettable.Firstly,it was March 8th,Women's day and so we were given the opportunity to see the place minus tickets.It was slightly drizzling and our cab driver also never earned us that it may rain heavily.
Once we set course,we could sense the lightning and it started pouring incessantly,we managed to borrow umbrellas from local kids for a reasonable price.This was an advantage,yet we could hardly see anything,so we again started out trail back and we found a small tea shop,we thought of waiting there till the rain subsides.Within few minutes,we could hear loud noise,it was hail stones attacking the fort.I was shocked as I was with my kids,no one else and there was no network too.I could not even call the driver! We patiently waited in a small shop located below the fort.
Then after a while,we mustered courage to walk back to our car which was 10 minutes away.
The chill hailstones literally made me feel shock waves passing through my feet..Atlast when we got in to the car,I sighed with relief,probably Rana Kumbha didn't want us there🤔It took us four hours to reach our hotel,localities had never experienced this kind of rains and its after twenty years that it's happening, I thought;Man proposes,God disposes..but watching snow clad Aravalli mountains was indeed a visual treat!
Our Udaipur journey was memorable with fun and frolic,adventure culinary experiences.
Restaurants to visit:
Krishna dal bhati restaurant -you get authentic dal bhati,unlimited chaas it buttermilk which is truly a worth try!
Jagdish Mishthaan Bhandaar(Bapu Bazaar)
-We feasted on onion and Mawa kachories out here which were scrumptious.
Brew villa cafe near Ganguar ghat: We had KitKat and Oreo milk shake which was surreal.This is a cute cafe serving Italian food and beverages.
The only place I regret visiting was hotel Padmini palace where the food was really not edible.
I had a great experience and managed comfortably with my kids for three days and also had Rajasthani khichdi every night as I loved it with dollops of ghee and achar!
This city is soaked in heritage,culture and beautiful palaces!
