Within Udaipur

City Palace

Lake Pichola

Lake Pichola view from Ambrai ghat or Gangaur ghat is smaller version of Fateh Sagar Lake. It's fairly crowded area to sit and enjoy the breeze. One may also take boat ride around Jagmandir Island.

Monsoon Palace

This is monsoon palace for royalty. There is not much palace-wise but it's on hill so you get decent view. Last kilometer is bit uphill so you may drive your car or hire a shared jeep.

Sajjangarh Wildlife Sanctuary

This is fairly standard zoo, and you can visit this if you are going to Monsoon Palace as it's just at the entrance to that.

Sahelion Ki Bari

It was private garden for royal ladies. Now it's just simple park.

Nearby Udaipur (within 40km)

Srinathji Temple

Temple of baby Krishna is very popular and expect crowd all the times. Temple opens at specific times throughout the day (every few hours, for few minutes) so be ready for long queues. Market around is nice for ad-hoc shopping and eating.

Ekling Ji Shiva Temple

The Eklingji Temple, one of the popular pilgrimages of Rajasthan is located at a distance of 22 km away from Udaipur. It's very old dilapidated temple but that offers its own charm.

Sahastra Bahu Temple

Temple of Vishnu, locally sometimes call Saas-Bahu temple, is around 20 km from Udaipur. It's great architectural splendor though partly in ruin now.
