Our last day at Udaipur was enduring. Just 2 days at Udaipur have created such a lasting impression that I can’t get over it and makes me want to explore more of Rajasthan. I feel its vibrant and colourful. I really appreciate Rajasthan Tourism which has done a lot for its tourists.
Getting back, we started our day with Shrinathji Temple since it was Janamashtmi. We got ready for the first-morning darshan at 5.30 am. It’s around 45 mins to 1 hour from Udaipur. There is another Lord Shiva temple which we missed because we got late. In case, you have more time in hand please do visit it.
Our next destination for the day was Sajjan Garh Palace (Monsoon Palace). Situated on the Aravalli Hills this place gives a comprehensive look of Udaipur. It’s worth a sight.
The palace is not well maintained in comparison to The City Palace Museum. You won’t find any guides to share more details. You can’t enter the main palace because of its debilitating condition. It has more than three floors. One of the dignitaries got the fencing done en-route to the palace for their family wedding which has proved a blessing for the vehicles.
Next in line was Shilpgram – The Craft Village or The Artisan’s Village.
I strongly recommend this place for art lovers and who like to know more about different tribal communities. You would get a gander of their lifestyle.
We had a wonderful guide who gave us a lot of information about how the tribal community themselves come and built a replica of their houses which reflects their way of living with the same material to give realistic feel.
Artisans across the country come and stay here for few days. You would find artists who make miniature paintings, pottery, clothes, crystal work and many more. You could shop these products at reasonable rates from them. It was great meeting some of the artists and salute them for their work.
A lot of cultural events happen here.
The trip to Udaipur is incomplete without the boat ride at Lake Pichola. We could not visit all the surrounding places due to paucity of time.
You could explore the local markets for Bandhej and Lehriya patterns for clothes. Lac bangles if you like and silver articles and jewellery.
I am sure that you loved the place along with me.

Shipgram is one of my favorite places in India. I had visited once during college for a workshop and then again for a second time when we went on a holiday. I’m glad you had fun on your trip.
Ya I have been there twice and still can go anytime. It was great interacting with the artists.
Udaipur is already in my travel list as I already heard a lot about its beautiful visit places. Your pictures seems like you had great fun there. And you are looking fabulous.
Thanks so much Minakshi 🙂
Lovely pics. That miniature nail art was amazing. Now gonna read about the full trip on Udaipur diaries 😊
Sure, do share how did you find the whole trip 🙂
I love Udaipur too and reading your blog brought back memories of my 2 trips there. Though I missed out on both the Sajjagarh and Shilpahram, the other places I visited were worth the effort and time spent! Loved the food in Udaipur too!!
There is so much to see there that you can never get enough in one visit. I loved the food too 🙂
I love Rajasthan. Although after reading your blog I realised there is is a lot more to explore. Lovely pictures as well
Thanks so much 🙂
Udaipur is truly beautiful. I wasn’t able to visit Shilpgram last time I was there, but I hope to visit it whenever I go to Udaipur again!
Do Visit whenever possible 🙂
I used visit Udaipur a lot as a weekend destination for relaxing with friends when I used to stay at Ahmedabad- my hometown. I have some wonderful memories visiting udaipur. Your post made me nostalgic .
Ya its very close by from there. We also went there for a weekend only but 2 days were memorable.
Great read. I am yet to visit Udaipur despite the fact that I hail from Rajasthan. This post gives all the more reason to do so at the earliest 🙂
I am happy I gave you a reason to explore a beautiful place. Hope you get a chance soon.
I enjoyed the virtual tour as well. There are so many places in the world to visit – so many more than there are days in a life. I’d like to visit, but seeing it through your eyes may be the only chance I get.
I am glad you liked it 🙂
Udaipur sounds like a good and artistic place to explore. The pictures of Shilpgram are so beautiful and enjoyed reading this feature, mahek.
Ya it was super fun. The replicas and science behind them were really great to know. Every person finds way to adapt to climate and develops things accordingly.
Thanks for this virtual tour…and I loved the miniature nail air..wow..that was something so unique..
Ya I kept till I could 🙂
I had been to Udaipur for a wedding and I loved the place. I was totally fascinated to see how they made the lac bangles. Would love to go there again.
I am glad to know you had a wonderful time there 🙂
I missed both these places on my trip to Udaipur couple of years back. But I love that place and some day I’ll go back for sure so I’ll be sure to visit them then.
Hope you get a chance soon Mahak 🙂
Udaipur is a beautiful place and I love it because I went there with my parents while I was working before I got married. Such fond memories.
It must be very special 🙂

I have never been to Udaipur but your post felt like a virtual tour with such vibrant pics and detailed info about the place. Thank you so much for sharing this 🙂
