Although the locals of Udaipur are familiar with most of the places listed below, tourists will find that ‘The Trip to Udaipur’ becomes ‘The Ultimate Trip to Udaipur’ if they include these places in their itinerary during this monsoon season. We have curated a list of places in and around Udaipur, that you can visit during the monsoon season.
Places to Visit In Udaipur
1.) The Sajjangarh or The Monsoon Palace
This is a wonderful monsoon place in Udaipur, as the name implies. It is best seen during June, July, and August, and was once known as Sajjan Garh Palace. It is a new public attraction that was once owned by the Mewar family and was recently given to the government. It has a view over the city of Udaipur and its lakes, brimming with water and vegetation during the monsoon season.
The only objective of Maharana Sajjan Singh’s construction of the Monsoon Palace, also known as Sajjangarh, was to stare at the monsoon clouds up close and enjoy the magnificent aerial view of the city from 3100 feet above sea level, as the name says.
Note: Due to Forest Department orders, the Monsoon Palace is only open till 7:00 PM for security reasons.
2.) Panna Boat Museum
It is a ship-shaped museum located on the Govardhan Sagar Lake, which is situated on the outskirts of Udaipur but is well-maintained and gets a lot of attention from both residents and visitors. It was inaugurated in 2014 by our Former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. The Panna Boat Museum is dedicated to the great Panna Dai and the sacrifices she made for Mewar; here, you may learn a lot about Panna Dai, as well as hang out in the beautifully constructed ship-shaped museum and enjoy the weather beside the picturesque lake.
3.) Neemach Mata Temple
We should express our gratitude for the modest and simple things in life, such as the smell of rain, the flavour of your favourite cuisine, or the tone of a loved one’s voice. And what better time to do it than in the magnificently located NEEMUCH MATA temple in Udaipur, where showers of blessings are raining all around you with a tinge of holiness enveloping you. This memorial honours Neemuch Mata Devi. There’s also a statue of Lord Ganesha, a Hindu God, and three granite lions facing west. The temple is situated on top of a grassy hill in Udaipur and offers a breathtaking aerial view of the city of lakes, Udaipur.
This temple and the stone statue within it, are well-known for their connection to a Neem tree, therefore the name NEEMUCH. Due to the sacred essence of the tree, it is claimed that anyone who visits the temple on a regular basis would never have any skin issues. To go to Neemuch Mata temple, you will have to climb 850 meters and can only do it on foot. You can climb this mountain either by taking the steps off the alley or pathway. The entire route is covered in natural peak forest and thick greenery, which adds to the beauty.
4.) The Karni Mata Ropeway
Udaipur has not only provided the prettiest sites but has also excelled in terms of offering scenic locations that are as wonderful as paradise during the monsoon and are completely free to visit. The KARNI MATA ROPEWAY in Udaipur is one of these destinations. It swings you across the lush green valley of Udaipur as you enjoy the gorgeous panorama of the surrounding region in a glass-packed cabin. This Ropeway begins from the famous Doodh Talai Musical Fountain Park and swipes you through the lush green gorges overlooking the entire city of Udaipur before dropping you off at the Karni Mata Temple thereby leaving you mesmerized by the greenery of this amazing city. The best part is, that it is incredibly cost-efficient.
5.) Nehru Garden
The City of Lakes, Udaipur, is known for its charming gardens. These gardens are ideal for anyone seeking a relaxing sunny day out. One such piece of art is The Nehru Garden. The beautiful and one-of-a-kind Nehru Park sprawls across 41 acres in the heart of Fateh Sagar Lake, with a lily pond in the centre and a massive towering gigantic fountain. The garden’s most adorable feature is its water trail, which can be crossed by tiny walkable stepping stones.
Anyone who visits Fateh Sagar Lake cannot ignore the beauty of Nehru Park and takes a boat trip from Fateh Sagar to Nehru Park, which enhances the beauty of the lake as well as the city of Udaipur.
Places to Visit Around Udaipur
1.) Tidi Dam
A massive 67-foot-high dam located 34 kilometres from the city centre is an exquisite spot to explore during monsoon season. Hindustan Zinc Ltd. built it in 1976, and it presently serves as Zawar Mines’ primary source of water. It has become one of the most popular and convenient picnic spots for the locals as well as the tourists. A perfect place to go especially during the monsoon season. It has unique natural scenery, where you may appreciate the beauty in its natural state. Although this place doesn’t have any natural waterfall, the water streaming from the dam creates an amazing illusion of an organic waterfall, and you may cherish this place with your friends and family.
2.) Ubeshwar Ji:
Another paradise during the rainy season is Ubeshwar Ji. The Aravali mountain range surrounds Ubeshwar Ji, with water gushing and flowing across it. It is essential to visit this location during the rainy season. Here you will locate Lord Shiva’s temple, where you may relax and enjoy the scenery, making it an ideal picnic site. There is also a pond with little fish where you may relax and enjoy the scenery.
3.) Chandni Village
It is a popular monsoon spot situated around 23 kilometres away from Udaipur. Do you recall learning how to sketch static scenery in elementary school? This is an identical twin of the fantasy environment we have been painting since our childhood, with various mountains on top and a water stream rushing through the mountainous terrain, alongside the village.
4.) Pipliya Ji
About 32 kilometres from Udaipur, one of the city’s best monsoon attractions is Pipliya Ji. The curving single road will take you to a spectacular area where you may appreciate nature’s tranquillity as it cuts through the lush green hills and streams. The route is wrapped in mist and clouds and appears to be floating in space; at times, it is so foggy that nothing can be seen beyond a few meters.
The view from the top of the mountain is spectacular. Pipliya Ji is one of the most visited spots in Udaipur, giving magnificent views amid breathtaking scenery. One might encounter a few villages nestled within its lush greenery, far from the rush and bustle of city life.
5.) The Badi Lake
The residents of Udaipur have already shown great respect and loyalty towards this site; now is the time to include it in the city’s local guides so that visitors may also visit this magnificent Lake, which is stretched across 155 square kilometres area and is located around 12 kilometres from Udaipur. This Lake was built between 1652 and 1680 by Maharaja Raj Singh. It is a famous picnic spot for the locals as well as tourists. The lake is also great for swimming, and there are several kiosks (shamiana) along the embankments where visitors may rest and relax.
Quick Tip: If you want to see the sunset from Badi Lake, go early in the morning and wait for the sun to rise over the picturesque lake. Also, if you have a local acquaintance, request that they take you on a hike around Badi Lake.
For every noteworthy vacation, prepossessing places are needed. Vacations lend us stories to be shared at every chance that comes by.

The first thing that comes up in our minds whenever we think about the time back when we were in our school and college is the time when we bunked our classes. Just a mere thought about it takes us to those times with our now long lost friends. The fun we had, the places we visited, the friends we had, everything. And sometimes when we were not lucky enough, we even got caught. At the time being it was a horrible thing but now that we think about it again it just brings a smile to our face.
While all of us always say that Udaipur is very small, the city has never stopped amazing us with the number of places that it has. Most of us were smart enough to invent new places for bunking every time, but there were some places which were more of a ‘bunking adda’ to us. Let us go to those good times and read about all these bunking addas of ours.
This is the one place that is the first option that always used to pop up in our heads whenever we thought about any bunks. Rani road is such a place that has kept so many secrets in itself and one of the secrets are our bunks. The long pal of Rani Road, the never-ending gossips and the unconditional love that we had for the lake, these three things were the main reason why we are always up for the place. Now that it has developed a lot, you could see a lot of people at any point of time in the day.
Our city is blessed with Lakes and hence we have a lot of places that roam around Lakes itself. Here, I am not discriminating but I think a lot of boys could connect to this one. Badi Lake has been the most famous place for boys bunking their classes here. Even now you can see a lot of young kids having a leisurely time of their life. Be it after school or when they are on bunks. There is one more point of attraction at Badi Lake that has become very famous with people lately. It is the Badi Hill. I don’t know about bunking but people definitely enjoy the trek to reach the hill. It’s not that the hill has got anything special but the view that it has is breathtaking.
The place literally takes me to my school days. Just standing at the huge gate used to excite me. Gulab Bagh is a huge garden where you can just get lost in nature and when we are on a bunk, that’s exactly what we need, isn’t it? The place consists of a lot of activities that you do here. It has a zoo, a toy train that makes you explore the entire place (the garden is that large), a library, a bunch of temples and a shrine, badminton court, swings and slides and vast gardens where you can chat endlessly with your friends.
The best of bests right? Fatehsagar has a beautiful Lake but that’s not just it. Apart from that, there are quite more places which were the favorite spots of the bunkers. The main pal and the one in front of the Bombay market are the main attraction and apart from that, there is a Swami Vivekananda park, temples, Guru Gobind Park which has become the secret spots for all the youngsters.
This is the one place that takes a long ride to go there. A lot of children can be seen on the way of Ubeshwar Ji on their bikes and scooters with a group of their friends. If you see Ubeshwar Ji there is nothing much as a place there. There is just a temple and a short waterfall. But the mere way of the place is adventurous enough. Beautiful landscapes, bright colors and fresh air adds up a light mood in every one of us.
While we are talking about Ubeshwar Ji, there is another place, Peepliya Ji which is just some 8 Km ahead of it. Being a bit uncommon there are not many people there at any time of the day. So it is considered as an ideal place to enjoy some quality time with friends. Apart from that, it has a majestic view of the village near it and in whatever season it will give you one amazing sight to appreciate.
No matter how many times we go to this place, we cannot ever get bored of going here. This one place has been the weekend plan for the bunkers. Sajjangarh is a complete package of adventure, to sum up your perfect day. It will take a good ride for you to reach the fort meanwhile which you can enjoy the fresh air and increasingly beautiful sight of the city. Once you reach the top of the fort, I bet you feel like there’s no better place than this.
Did everything just flashed in front of your eyes while reading the article? Well, it’s good to be a little nostalgic, no? It is possible that the friends that we made in our school and college will not be in our touch right now but the memories that we made with them, the enormous amount of fun that we had and the promises to stay together until our last breath is unforgettable. If it is possible, contact all those long lost friends of yours and live the best time of your lives once again for you cannot live those moments again but you can always go back to that time right? And well Bunking is not always bad because after all the most important lessons of your lives are the one that you take outside of your class.
The time spent in a hostel is like a roller coaster ride. You face both ups and downs in this journey. There are times when you miss your city, your family, and your friends but then you even enjoy these times where you are living in a completely different city with different people. And at the end of the day, these are the only times that become the most memorable times of your life.
On weekends, every hosteller wants a perfect day out with his friends to chill and have a time of their lives. But the biggest hurdle that comes in their way is they do not know where to go. Being in a new city, it is very difficult to figure out places apart from the usual tourist destinations and one thing that we always have to keep in mind is that all these places and events fall into our budget because after all, we are hostellers. So here, we bring a perfect budgeted day out an itinerary for you hostel people which you can follow this weekend and guess what? It will be a perfect pocket-friendly day for you.

While all of us have grown listening about the beautiful places and rich culture of Udaipur, there are some places which have some inexplicable stories associated with them. People from Udaipur have witnessed some weird incidents and claims that the place consists of some paranormal activities.
Let us see what these places are and what kind of activities and stories people claim there to be –
Natni ka Chabutra
Legend says that once upon a time there was a king named Maharana Jawan Singh, in city palace who assured a Natni (tightrope walker who performs various dance and activities on a rope in the air) that he would gift her half of his kingdom if she will cross the rope tied from a village on the west bank of the lake to the City Palace on the east bank. Just when she was about to finish it, the fearful king ordered to cut the rope and the Natni drowned and died in the water. Just before she died she cursed the Maharana’s family. Since then, the place is said to be haunted and no one is allowed to go there.
Apart from its rich heritage sites and colorful streets, it is also said to be the home of some inexplicable energies that prove their existence in nights. Some of the residents claim that they’ve heard and experienced something paranormal in this place. This area is said to be between Tibetan market to Jagdish temple. It is said that the kings and their kingdom who lived here once upon a time still roam around the area to ensure the safety of the place.
Bedla Mata is a Hindu temple situated at Bedla road in Udaipur. It is said that the goddess of this temple takes away the ghost of people when you visit the temple and do some ritual which is to go under a shallow cave made of stones for three times. It is also said that when you return from the temple, do not look back and if you do all the ghosts that people left there will come right behind you. Scared already?
There are so many Udaipurites who have different ghost stories when it comes to Badi Lake. Well, I will start with one. There was this group of 4-5 people who were on a night out and went to Badi Lake. When they were returning from there at some time around 10:00 pm, they heard a loud voice and at that very instant when they looked on the road, some unrecognizable figure crossed the road.
While night outs are all fun and frolic, such incidents make us think about it again.
Watch this viral video of Badi where a ghost was encountered.
Fatehsagar is one of the most popular lakes not only in Udaipur but all around the country. Its beauty attracts all the local people of the city as well as tourists from all around the world but ever heard that its water invites death?
There is a saying which is spread all across the city that when the first heavy rain of monsoon touches and fill the water of Lake Fatehsagar, it invites one death. People say that whoever swimming in the water of Lake Fatehsagar after heavy rains get pulled by some energy inside the water and don’t let them swim across the surface causing death.
It might be possible that you and I won’t believe it but the people who have suffered such incident will only know the horror of it. If you are one of these people who has encountered such strange activities in the town, share your experience with us in the comments section.
Udaipur is known as the City of Lakes and indeed the phrase used is correct. Udaipur has a number of lakes and often people get confused in counting the exact number! Well, the whole city is beautifully lined by various lakes and parts of the city also experience the Ayad river crossing under the several bridges. The vicinity of the city is so tranquil that one might get totally mesmerized by it. So, coming back to the question; let’s find out how many lakes are in Udaipur.
The famous ones:
These lakes are the ones which are the biggest and lie in close proximity from the city center. Not only this, these ones are the most visited by tourists and locals.
Fateh Sagar Lake
Fateh Sagar Lake is the second artificial lake of Udaipur after Jaisamand lake. It was built in 1678 by Maharana Jai Singh. Then in 1889, Maharana Fateh Singh built the “Connaught Dam,” near ‘Dewali’ and subsequently the dam enlarged the lake, and hence was renamed after the King Maharana Fateh Singh.
Attractions at the Lake Fateh Sagar:
Camel and Horse Rides
Several parks for recreational activities.
Pichola Lake is the oldest and one of the largest lakes in Udaipur. Most of the luxurious hotels are in this area and has the massive City Palace standing on the banks. The Taj Lake Palace resting in the middle of the waters of the Lake Pichola is an eye-pleasing sight. The name ‘Pichola’ has two legends behind it, that you can read here.
Attractions at the Pichola Lake:
Visit Jag Mandir
Visit Taj Lake Palace
Innumerable eateries surrounding the lake
Situated near the Village Badi, the lake is also called by the name Jiyan Sagar named after Jana Devi, the mother of Maharana Raj Singh who built the lake. It sprawls in an area of 155 sq. km. and the embankment of the lake extends wide in area. It also boasts three beautiful ‘chattris’.
Attractions at the Badi Lake:
Udaisagar Lake is located at a distance of about 13 km in the east of Udaipur. The construction of this lake was started in 1559 by Maharana Udai Singh. Completed in 1565, the Maharana constructed a dam on Berach River to guarantee ample supply of water in his kingdom and Udai Sagar was the result of this Dam.
The lake gets its name from the Maharana who built it.
These lakes the branches or links to the larger ones in the city. While these are smaller than the above-mentioned ones they have their equal charm.
This small artificial lake created by Maharana Swaroop Singh gets its name from him. It is also known as Kumharia Talab. Swaroop Sagar is located near Chand Pol adjoining Rangsagar (which is a branch of Pichola Lake). Kumharia Talab or Swaroop Sagar is connected with Lake Pichola and Lake Fateh Sagar.
Doodh Talai is a small lake near Pichola Lake. Doodh Talai (meaning milk pond) fulfilled the basic needs of cows that were present in government cow shelters (Raajakeey Goshalas) that met the requirement of milk in the royal kitchen. The freshwater reservoir was primarily meant for the Royal concern.
Purohito ka Talab
‘Purohito ka Talab’ is being developed as a new destination for tourists. It is located at a distance of about 12 kilometers from Udaipur, in Amberi Panchayat which is also known as Mini Jaisalmer. The Reddish-Orange Chattris are a major attraction there.
Located on the outskirts of Udaipur this place is less visited by the tourists or locals due to its distance from the city center. However, the local government bodies have worked a lot towards making it a hot-spot. A ship (structure) was also installed in the water to attract people. The people residing in the nearby colonies do come and enjoy evenings at the Goverdhan Sagar.
The Main source of water in Fatehsagar is the Madaar Lake (Chhota). These two water bodies (and must be counted as two different lakes) are known under a single name ‘Madaar’ and colloquially people refer to them as ‘Chota Madaar’ and ‘Badaa Madaar’ meaning small and large Madaar. Water comes from Madar Lake and Swaroop Sagar Link Channel to fill up the lake Fatehsagar.
The nearby ones:
Jaisamand Lake is the second largest artificial lake in Asia. It is situated at a distance of approximately 51 km from the city of Udaipur. The lake is also known as Dhebar Lake. It was built by Maharana Jai Singh while making a dam on the Gomti River in the year 1685. He kept the name of the lake Jaisamand after his known name; Jaisamand means ‘Ocean of Victory’.
Located 66 km north of Udaipur, Rajsamand Lake lies between Rajnagar and Kankroli districts. It is also known as Rajsamudra Lake. The lake was a result of a dam constructed across the river Gomati, Kelwa, and Tali; built by Maharana Raj Singh I in the years 1662-1676. One of the major attractions at the Rajsamand Lake is the array of nine pavilions or ‘nauchowki’ (nine ghats) that are beautifully adorned with pictures of the sun, chariots, gods, birds and detailed carvings.
Aren’t you amazed by knowing about the number of lakes in the whole of Udaipur!!!
