Crowned by the purple and ochre ridges of the Aravallis and studded with shimmering lakes, Udaipur’s cityscape has a romance which remains unparalleled in India. Adding to the city’s picturesqueness are a plethora of delicately designed palaces, havelis and temples, which lend a classical vibrancy to modern Udaipur’s many, crooked, colourful streets.
Arrive to a warm welcome from our representative at Udaipur Railway Station/Airport. Check-in to the hotel for a relaxing first day. Overnight stay at the hotel.
Have breakfast and leave for Lake Fateh Sagar. The Maharana Pratap Memorial, which overlooks the lake, is a perfect photo-op. Visit Nehru Gardens, the largest of the lake’s islands. Feel like royalty at the Sahelion-ki-bari, with its handcrafted fountains. After refreshments at Sukhadia Circle, head to Bharatiya Lok Kala Museum to sample Rajput arts and crafts. Check out City Palace, the largest palace complex, and Jagdish Temple, built by Maharana Jagat Singh. Overnight stay at the hotel.
After breakfast, revisit the famous legends of Chittorgarh. The cynosure of this visit is the gargantuan Chittorgarh Fort, rising like a phoenix above the old town of Chittor. Within its walls, enclosing a 240 acre fort settlement, were scripted some of the most abiding tales of heroism and courage. The history of this site is a summary of the values that dictate the Rajputana code of honour, compiled over centuries of war and sacrifice. Overnight stay at the hotel.
With a final breakfast, it’s time to bid goodbye to the serenity of Udaipur. You can avail of a ride back to Udaipur Railway Station/Airport, to commence your journey home, full of memories and a resolve to return soon.
