Rating: 4.5 (based on 49740 google reviews)

Built alongside Lake Pichola, the Udaipur City Palace is considered as the largest royal complex in Rajasthan. This magnificent fort was constructed by Maharaja Uday Singh in 1559 and has served as the seat of power from where the rulers administered their kingdom and as the royal residence for generations. The grandeur of this palace was augmented by his successors who added a few structures to the chief building. The palace is now a beautiful assortment of mahals, courtyards, pavilions, hanging gardens, terraces and rooms. There is a museum here as well that exhibits some of the finest specimens of Rajput art and culture.

Perched in the Aravallis, the granite and marble facade of the palace stands in contrast with its natural environment. Its royal architecture is a coalescence of medieval, Chinese as well as European influences and is adorned with several domes, towers and arches. The imposing City palace lies in a lush green garden and is a wonder to marvel at. It is a delightful amalgamation of history, tradition and regal architecture and is undoubtedly one of the best places to visit in Udaipur.
