A lakeside conglomeration of structures merged into a fort-like whole, City Palace of Udaipur represents one of the most iconic and popular attractions in the entire state. You'll immediately notice the palace's crowning glory as you approach--a lengthy and intricate white facade that stretches for 244 m (801 ft) along the lakefront, complete with numerous balconies and verandas. Begun in 1599 by the founder of the city, the palace eventually grew into a semi-connected complex of similar structures. Wander the extensive grounds and explore the numerous courtyards, halls, and elephant-fighting pits within, long used by the ruling family still in possession of the property. Don't miss stopping by the palace's museum to learn more about the history of the region and the fortress itself.

City Palace of Udaipur Reviews
L'immenso palazzo di Udaipur è semplicemente fantastico, sorge sulle sponde del lago Pichola, le terrazze e le sale sono da mille e una notte. more »The immense palace of Udaipur is simply fantastic, situated on the shores of Lake Pichola, the terraces and rooms are from a thousand and one night.
We went at this place with lots of good expectations but found every thing reverse of it. Food was triable and recepction people was very careless. more »
City palace is awesome. I've been here a couple of times over a gap of several years and they seem to be really investing in improvement restoration and adding galleries. Overall it takes a couple of hours to cover. Plan to carry some water as it can take long to get out of the palace. Oh and they have discounts for senior citizens. The ticket counters may not always inform you about that.
What an amazing place inside , well kept with the amazing well kept horse as palace artifacts. Once you have done the Palace tour and the bar ride out to the summer palace , One of two restaurants in the old town show the James Bond movie that was filmed at this location , you watch for free if eat or just have a drink there. Shows around 7:30 or on demand.
