If you have time surely go to the Hattipol market. It's quite cheap and reasonable and you would get lots of Rajasthani textiles.

And for the taxi it will cost 95/- per person but if you have your own vehicle it will cost around 200/- for 4 wheeler and 35/- for two wheeler to go up.

My next stop was at The City Palace.The tickets will cost you Rs330/- for normal citizens but if you have a student ID then you have to pay only Rs130/-.
The place is beautiful. I would suggest you to get a guide which will cost you Rs300/- for 5-10people head.  Have a cup of coffee or so in The terrace cafe . Again it will pinch you around 500/- but it's worth it especially during sunset.

My next stop was Jagdish mandir and pichola lake. I wanted to see the sunset. The boat ride will cost you around Rs220/- per person for 30hours. It's normal motor boats right now because of the rain but you may get speed boats too.
From there you can go to the Mata Mandir through cable rope cars. But as I didn't had time. I had to catch my bus, so wasn't able to make it.
