Udaipur - As we travel

Tripoto
5th Dec 2018
Day 1

Udaipur also was known as Venice of East. City of lakes is beautiful place surrounded by 7 lakes, Aravalli mountain ranges (the oldest range of Fold Mountains), architectural temples, stunning palaces and Forts. Udaipur was historic capital of Mewar kingdom formed by Maharana Udai Singh after he moved from Chittorgarh to Udaipur when King Akbar has beleaguered Chittorgarh. Till 1818 Udaipur persisted to be capital, but post-Independence it became part of Rajasthan. Udaipur is separated from Thar desserts by the Aravalli range and is at the approx. 600 km distance from Delhi capital of India and 800 km from Mumbai the Economic capital of the country.
Ways to Reach Udaipur:
By Airways: Udaipur has an airport named Maharana Pratap Airport at the distance of approx. 25 km from the old city well connected by roads. There are few flights operational as of now which connects Udaipur to major cities like Jaipur, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad in India. Airfare can cost you approx. 2700 INR one-way fare from Mumbai if you book your trip well in advance.
By Railways: Udaipur is connected via railways by two railway stations named Udaipur city railway station and Rana Pratap Nagar Railway station. Via Railways Udaipur is connected to all major cities in Rajasthan and other states of India as well.
By Road: The city is well connected by National highways to Gujrat, Mumbai, Delhi and Madhya Pradesh. For people travelling by road, the distance between Udaipur and Mumbai is approx. 800.
For working people, as there are short of leaves and airways being the fastest way of transit, they should be choosing the same over other 2 modes of travel.

Local Transportation:

As this city is a sightseer place and most of the visitors are Non-Indians who are here to explore Rajasthan, they travel through public transport or rented cars within the city and intercity.

A rented car is another option for travelling in and around Udaipur. Rented car costs per day 250 km at 12 INR per KM which includes Toll and parking.

As we also covered Haldighati, Kumbhalgarh and Chittorgarh, booking a cab for wandering around was much needed which helped to explore all these places at the fullest and enlighten with the history and culture of the place.

Accommodation:

Udaipur: You can book the budget hotels as cheap as INR 500 per night in Udaipur old city, which are decent enough to the stay. From Old city the view is amazing and there are a few places which you can cover on your own as they are at the walking distance. As the old city has a very narrow road only private vehicles ply or the rickshaws. Rented cars or buses are not allowed on this road to avoid the traffic. Most of the hotels here have restaurants on the terrace which has the lake Pichola View.

Kumbhalgarh: The hotels in Kumbhalgarh are bit costly than Chittorgarh and Udaipur, where the per night stay for a single room costs at least 1000 INR in a budget hotel.

Chittorgarh: Budget hotel here will cost at least 500 INR per night.

You can book the hotels via Booking.com, Agoda.com or Goibibo.com post comparing the costs of the same hotel on all the 3 websites. So far I have seen Booking.com gives good rates and also discounts if you are a regular user.

We reached Udaipur in the afternoon so as per agenda we were to dump our bags in the hotel and immediately leave for exploring the City Palace. This was the plan, but not every time things work as planned, and exactly this is what happened. We landed 2 hrs behind the schedule in Udaipur and post getting into the cab, during our conversation we got to know that City Palace for which I flew all the way from Mumbai is closed for visitors from 5th Dec to 9th Dec, due to Ambani’s wedding. We had to make the changes in our schedule and add a new place in our itinerary.

Fateh Sagar Lake:

While going from the airport towards the city en route we stopped at Fateh Sagar Lake. This is an artificial lake named after the Maharana Fateh Singh. There are 3 islands on this lake of which the largest is Nehru Park. Nehru Park is accessible by motor boats and was earlier open for tourists to explore but due to a mishap which occurred a few months back, it is closed for visitors. You can enjoy the lake view with the mountains in the backdrop or a boat ride in the lake.

Saheliyon ki Bari means Garden of Maids which was built in 18th Century by Maharana Sangram Singh for the Royal Ladies. As per the local guides, this garden was specially designed by the King and presented to Queen to offer delightful moments with the maids. As the Queen used to spend time and relish with her maids the garden got its name as Saheliyon ki Bari.

In the later stage, King added fountains to the Garden which were imported from England. It is said that till date no one knows how the fountains function without any motor being used. History and the architecture will amaze you, every time you go to a new place having historical relevance. The main pool has four black marbled kiosks in its corners and one white marble kiosk in its centre. There are sculpted birds that spurt water from their beaks producing the rain effect on the top of kiosks.

Post seeing the above 3 places our driver took us to the shop where sarees, quilts and other stuff manufactured in Rajasthan is made. After this driver dropped us at the hotel and we had free time.
Being an active person I don't really prefer to relax in the Hotel when I am a new place. With the urge to learn something new about the place I went to the hotel reception and questioned the person there. He was very helpful and informative, told us to see the Bagore Ki Haveli Folk show which is conducted every evening from 7:00 pm to 8:00 Pm.
The moment we left from the hotel we realised that the temperature is dripping but I was too lazy to go back to the hotel and get my pullover. But yes I did have a desi solution on the cold, a cup of tea. So while searching Bagore ki Haveli on Google maps my eyes were looking out for a chai tapri (tea stall). Finally, I got one right opposite to Jagdish Mandir. Guys if you are visiting Udaipur do try the chai, Poha and moong kachori here. The place is small but the food is tasty.

The topsoil at this Ghati is Haldi (turmeric) coloured yellow hence the name Haldi Ghati. This is the place where the unforgettable battle was fought between Mughal and Mewar king Maharana Pratap. Maharana Pratap’s horse Chetak played a dynamic role in this battle by saving his master from the enemies. Though he was lethally wounded when he jumped from one edge to the other edge to save Maharana Pratap.
