We reached Udaipur in the morning @8 and de-borded the bus few km near the guest house and took an Uber for rest of the journey.
Upon reaching, we freshened up ourselves and left for the excursion.
1st on our list was city palace which was just 1.5km from our guest house. Before that my bae encountered a temple and we visited that before proceeding towards the city palace.
After the darshan at the temple, we were starving like anything, so just before city palace's back side, there was a South Indian restaurant, the only one on the street to offer that , had our breakfast there and that restaurant was highly rated on TripAdvisor by the foreign nationals for its quality.
We ordered masala dosa, which coated us Rs. 160 and had buttermilk along with it over there and then resumed our footsteps towards city palace.
Entry ticket to city palace is Rs.30 and charge for the museum is Rs. 300 per person.
In city palace only there is Pichola lake(don't get fooled by the auto walas as a separate place to visit) and the boat ride in it is for Rs.480 per person and mostly foreigners do that ride as it's too expensive, and for us there is an alternative, which I'll tell you in a while. In Pichola lake there is magnificent JAL Mahal and the pond where the shooting of Movie Dhadak took place.
The sun was so bright that too in the month of November, we had some pictures clicked of ourselves and moved ahead.
Kind Attention: there are many auto drivers available outside charging heavily for travel and the rate is Rs. 100 from 0-3km flat.
Note: most of the monuments are in old Udaipur only, so if you want to spend less(to avoid auto charges), then have to walk a lot for exploring the monuments.
After city palace, we headed towards Bagore ki haveli, while returning, we enquired about kumbalgarh fort and it's tour, so we booked a day tour to kumbalgarh and ranakpur Jain temple for the next day.
Tour charges :Rs. 2100 which covered kumbalgarh fort and ranakpur Jain temple.
Entry to Bagore ki Haveli is Rs.50 per person.
Bagore ki Haveli hosts cultural events in the evening which comprises of local dance and music and puppet show.This monument is again situated near the ghat of Pichola lake.
Bagore ki Haveli also, comprises of the puppets Alligned in such a way that they describe you , how at that time the darbar was held in the king's presence. Also, the description regarding the marriage ceremony of the king depicted by statue in the other building.
Plus Bagore ki Haveli has the world's biggest turban in it. Do check that out in the pics below.
After that we had an option to either move towards fateh Sagar lake or to sahelio ki Bari and while discussing this with the local people, we were told to visit fateh Sagar lake in the evening as it hosts beautiful sunset, so we proceeded towards sahelio ki Bari, and explored it. It has some of the painting placed in a separate room as well.
Thus after it we moved towards fateh Sagar lake which was about 2.5km from sahelio ki Bari and this time we preferred to walk and upon reaching there, we still had time for the sunset, so we found aquarium adjacent to the lake, which had an entry charge of Rs. 180 per person and explored some unique species of fishes.
Then we proceeded towards fateh Sagar lake and the time was 5:30 P.M. and was the right time to get into the slow boat which takes half and hour to complete one circle instead of speed boat which takes 2-3 mins. We preferred slowboat in order to witness the sunset.
Charges are Rs. 225 per person.
And fateh Sagar lake is the pick for boating instead of Pichola lake that I was talking about in the beginning.
After completion of boat ride, it was little dark and timing to visit Maharana Pratap's statue was also over, but the light show was available to explore but we were too tired to walk till the statue, instead we planned for romantic candle light dinner date across the lake in a rooftop restaurant.
After the dinner we proceeded towards our guest house for sleep as we had to start early for kumbalgarh fort next morning.
