Udaipur Tour Packages

Udaipur tour packages are known for offering some of the most fascinating cultural experiences of Rajasthan. Udaipur, the City of Sunrise, typifies to perfection of all the beauty and glory of medieval India. The tourist destination of Udaipur has something of the charm of a fairy tale. With the long cataract of marble terraces and halls falling into the waters of a mountain-encircled lake, the city has all the loveliness of an earthly paradise. The Maharana’s capital, like Venice - the Queen of the Adriatic, is a city of palaces. Like its European prototype, Udaipur creates a longing to laze, to lounge, to daydream. To row from one palace to another, to stroll amidst gardens that would do honour to a fairyland, to drive in an enchanted forest, and, last but by no means least—to watch the sun set over the Pichola Lake and tint the Maharana’s Palace with a colour symphony irreproducible, indescribable—time flies in such gentle and genial occupations—and each day Udaipur reveals some new unsuspected beauty, unveils some fresh charm.

Udaipur is no less a city of temples than of palaces, and the sanctuaries on the Pichola Lake are unforgettably impressive. Best selling Udaipur tours essentially incorporate visit to at least one of the famous temples. The city is home to several historical temples like Jagdish Temple, Mansapurna Karni Mata Temple, Neemach Mata Temple, Amba Mata Temple, Mahalaxmi Temple, Sahastrabahu Temple, Bohra Ganesh Temple & Eklingji Temple. Eklingji Temple holds immense reverence and prominence. The temple of Eklingji, about fourteen miles distant from Udaipur, was constructed about the year 728 AD by Bappa Rawal. The original temple was destroyed by the Muslims and the present elaborate building dates only from the fifteenth century. The design is uncommon and extremely effective with a double-storeyed porch surmounted by a pyramidal roof and a lofty and peculiarly ornate tower over the sanctuary proper.

Even in an account of the shrines and temples, one cannot forget the cenotaphs of the Maharanas—so full of memories of the glory and greatness of Udaipur enshrined in magnificent memorials. Customizable Udaipur tour itineraries may include a visit to the site of these chhatris. Only a couple of miles from the city is Arh or Ahar, studded with what are called the splendid chhatris. With their wealth of white marble, these chhatris are quite arresting monuments in terms of number as well as in quality. The chhatris exist literally in hundreds of all sizes, from the little domical canopy supported by four columns to the splendid chhatri whose octagonal dome is supported by fifty-six.

The ghats on the banks of various lakes in the erstwhile Mewar capital are also highlights of Udaipur tourism. Gangaur Ghat in Udaipur holds special significance. The sight of Gangaur Ghat suggests the great spring festival when the image of the goddess Gangaur clad in gold, silver and precious stones is ensconced on a sumptuous throne close to the lake. The procession of boats in which the Maharana and his suite participate, the multifarious beauty of the garb assumed in honour of this fete by the fairest city in India baffle both the brush of the artist and the pen of the writer.

Popular Udaipur holiday packages essentially include sightseeing of City Palace , Lake Palace (Jag Niwas), Jag Mandir Palace, Saheliyon ki Bari, Bagore ki Haveli, Lake Pichola etc. Several excursions to nearby attractions can also organized as part of Udaipur tours. Prominent among those places are Eklingiji Temple, Kumbhalgarh, Ranakpur and Chittorgarh. Udaipur tour is a cherished part of real, royal and cultural Rajasthan tour packages.
