उदयपुर में गुरुवार की सुबह शहरवासियों एवं पर्यटकों के लिए खुशियों की सौगात लेकर आई। शहर की प्रमुख झील फतहसागर के चारों गेट गुरुवार 7 अक्टूबर की सुबह 9.15 बजे जिला कलक्टर चेतन सिंह देवड़ा द्वारा खोल दिए गए।
जल संसाधन विभाग के अनुसार ऐसा पहली बार हो रहा है जब झील के गेट अक्टूबर में खोले जा रहे है। इसकी भराव क्षमता 13 फिट है और बुधवार शाम तक यहां 13 फिट 3 इंच पानी भर चुका था। जल संसाधन विभाग के अधिशाषी अभियंता के.सी.जैन ने बताया की पिछले वर्ष 6 सितंबर को गेट खोले गये थे।
फतेहसागर में पानी आने का अर्थ है साल भर पानी का संपूर्ण प्रबंध अथवा गेट खुलने के बाद अब यह झील पर्यटको के लिए आकर्षण केंद्र रहेगी। अब गेट खुलने के बाद फतेहसागर का पानी शहर के बीच यूआईटी पुलिया से आयड़ होता हुआ उदयसागर पहुंचेगा। सुरक्षा की दृष्टि से पुलिस थाना अंबामाता को भी विभाग की ओर से सूचना दी गई है।
कोरोना का संक्रमण कम होने के कारन प्रशासन ने उदयपुर वासियों का संयम देखते हुए फतेहसागर के गेट गुरुवार को खोलने का फैसला लिया। ऐसे में फतहसागर का गेट खुलने के दौरान भी जिला प्रशासन ने आमजनों से कोविड प्रोटोकॉल की पालना करने की अपील की है। जिला कलक्टर ने कहा है कि इस दौरान मास्क एव सोशल डिस्टेंशिंग का विशेष ध्यान रखे।

The above-listed locations are just a few, we have listed below a few more places that are a must-visit during Monsoons:
Kundeshwar Mahadev Ji
Food to eat:
·Pakode (पकोड़े): Whenever we talk about rains in this city, the first thing that’ll ever cross an Udaipurites mind is ‘Pakode’. We won’t be wrong if we call ‘Pakode’, the staple food for the monsoon season.
Vegetable Maggi: Hot and freshly cooked Maggi fully loaded with veggies is the perfect food for all the foodies who wanna enjoy great taste instantly.
Chai: For all the chai-holics, tea has always been an inseparable part of the daily routine life. Chai becomes of utmost importance while it’s raining out there during.
Bread-Bada: Hot Bread-Bada or Bread-Pakoda are seriously a must-try while you are enjoying the monsoons in Udaipur.
Corncob (भुट्टा): ‘Bhutta’ is the most enjoyed food when it comes to haveing some light snacks in the rainy season when you are at Fatehnagar. Various stalls and vendors can be spotted near the famous tourist destinations selling sweet corn and corn cobs. These are specially prepared on coal which gives the corncobs a natural taste and aroma.
Sandwich: We all are mad about cheesy sandwiches filled with our favorite creamy veggies, topped up with lots of cheese and that too in monsoons, wouldn’t it be the best thing ever?
A guide for safety while you are enjoying Monsoons out there:
Take out your raincoats, umbrellas, waterproof shoes and always keep plastic bags handy to avoid your belongings from getting wet.
A shower after you get wet in the rains is a must.
Avoid wearing wet clothes without proper cleaning.
Before cooking green veggies, firstly wash them thoroughly.
Carry and drink boiled and purified water, juices and soups prepared at home only.

UdaipurBlog wishes everyone a very HAPPY, HEALTHY and UNFORGETTABLE MONSOON.
If you have ever heard about Udaipur, its culture and traditions, there are hardly any chances you haven’t heard about the Mela (fair) of Hariyali Amavasya. Hariyali means greenery while Amavasya refers to the no-moon day as per Hindi terminology. It is a festival to rejoice rains due to which the earth gets covered with a blanket of greenery. Every year this festival is celebrated with high energy and enthusiasm in the Mewar region. There are many rituals associated with this fest, and people in Northern states of India celebrates this with great fervor.
As it is a known fact that rains are considered as blessings of God and to show gratitude towards nature and its blessings, people celebrate Hariyali Amavasya to welcome the onset of monsoon. Like Rajasthan it is also celebrated in other Northern states of India such as Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Maharashtra. In Maharashtra it is celebrated as ‘Gatari Amavasya’, in Andhra Pradesh as ‘Chukkala Amavasya’ and in Orissa it is known as ‘Chitalagi Amavasya’. As with the names, the rituals and traditions vary in different parts of the country, but the spirit of celebrations remains same.
Being an Udaipurite I still remember, how eagerly as kids we used to wait for this day. The chief thing that attracted us the most about this festival was the Mela (fair) and which still is. We eagerly used to wait for this day which was marked by a school holiday and it was customary to visit the fair to enjoy rides and food with family. Everywhere you could see, are the vibrant colors, the bustling crowd and the vendors shouting out loud. While the women folks mainly loved to shop at the fair stalls, however, we as kids would make it sure not to miss out any of the rides and food was ofcourse our motto of life. The interesting part is, still after so many years nothing has really changed except the climatic changes.
Let’s know some interesting facts about this Mela:
It is believed that the first Hariyali Amavasya Mela was set up by Maharana Fateh Singh, to celebrate the completion of a reservoir near Dewali pond, which eventually became a tradition and is still continuing.
Hariyali Amavasya is a two day celebration where the last day is usually reserved for women.
Like any other festival, this festive fair is not confined to a particular religion but gathers people from all the religion, class and castes which is certainly a mark of cultural integration.
The famous dish of Rabdi-Malpua is the showstopper of this mela. Most people just visit to palate the renowned dish which is also considered as a monsoon cuisine by locals.
Public places such as Moti Magri, Saheliyon ki Baari etc which usually have an entrance fee during other days of the year are kept free for these two days.
The Mela is more of interest to the tribals and rural crowd near Udaipur region, who comes up in huge crowd in traditional costumes and jewelry.
Also elderly folks of this region have a strong belief, that it will definitely rain on the day of Hariyali Amavasya.
The wooden sword wrapped with colorful papers, a colorful feathered hat and small trumpets of paper called Poopadi in native language are the souvenirs which validate your presence at Mela.
Women collectively pray for good rainfall and bountiful harvest.
Green is the color of the day and ladies in the Mewar region wear green which represent their love for nature.
Several schools and social groups & organizations celebrate it a day before, organizing cultural programs.
It is considered auspicious to plant a sapling on this day which is also having religious significance as per Hindu community.
This year Hariyali Amavasya will be observed on 1st of August, which will also be a collector declared holiday for schools, colleges and all government organizations. Observing the increasing popularity of this festival among domestic and international tourists,efforts are also made by Municipal Corporation of Udaipur to have this historic fair registered in the Guinness Book of World Records.
While the festival is the time to rejuvenate and rejoice, there is an increasing threat as well from past few year, about depleting rainfall and vanishing forests in the Aravali region. As true Udaipurites lets join hands to protect our environment and trees so that our future generations could also enjoy this historic Mela.

Saheliyon Ki Bari: ‘The Garden of the Maidens’, the literal meaning of the ‘Saheliyon ki Bari’ was constructed by Maharana Bhopal Singh.

A meeting was hosted by District Tourism Development Committee in the collectorate premises on Tuesday. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss various steps that needed to be taken to improve the conditions of various tourist attractions in Udaipur. Tourism Industry is one of the biggest business sectors for the Udaipurites and needs reforms to strengthen its roots.
Steps like regular police patrolling, improving traffic conditions around the tourist spots were discussed at length. Common accident-prone spots at popular tourist attractions like Fatehsagar, Badi, Sajjangarh Fort, Gangaur Ghat, Jagdish Mandir, Fatehsagar, Ambrai, Rani Road will soon be declared as no-selfie zone due to safety concerns. The meeting was led by Additional District Collector Sanjay Kumar and Udaipur’s Mayor Chandra Singh Kothari, District Traffic Administrator Kalpana Sharma along with other officials attended the meeting.
The Heritage Walk which is closed from the past 2 years was also discussed and steps to restart it was one of the major discussion points. The mayor is in discussion with officials from the Udaipur Guide Association to restart the Heritage Walk at the earliest.
Udaipur is well known for its tourism industry and the government is taking various steps from time to time for its betterment.
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.
Isn’t Udaipur all about just lakes and nothing else? Why should one even think of visiting this small city of Rajasthan when you can totally go to some other place. While everyone is busy praising the so-called ‘City of lakes’ Udaipur, we’ve jotted down a list of reasons why you shouldn’t visit Udaipur.
Amazing traditional clothing, jewelry, and handicrafts will burn a hole in your pocket
If you are a shopaholic then visiting Udaipur is a big threat to you. Beautiful traditional clothes with pretty work and decorations, silver, gold and black metal jewelry for both men and women, mind-blowing handicrafts on clothing, décor pieces, and other items will burn a hole in your pockets. So, in Udaipur, you might spend your entire month’s salary and since we don’t want you to regret your shopaholic instinct, it is advisable to not visit Udaipur.
Delicious Dal Bati and regional cuisine will increase your calories
The famous Rajasthani food Dal Bati and all other regional cuisines are so delicious that you cannot stop at just tasting. So you have to prepare your stomach to get entirely filled and then your mind to satisfy itself with just that. Since we don’t want you to spend an extra hour at gym burning the calories gained from the heavenly delicious Dal Bati, you shouldn’t visit Udaipur.
The culture and festivals of Udaipur will leave you spellbound
Udaipur has a brimful of cultures and to celebrate the vastness of these cultures, there are different festivals taking place at every time of the year. From dance, music performance, and regional activities in Shilpgram to festivities and joy on everyone’s faces in Hariyali Amavasya fair, the variety of culture showcase will leave you spellbound. The moment when you are present at such occasions you will feel like you belong here.
Now, who would want to enjoy the colorful and joyful atmosphere of these festivals from their busy and hectic schedule right?
The utterly romantic destinations will make you fall in love
If you are already in love with someone, these utterly romantic destinations in Udaipur will just act as a catalyst to your love. You will feel like celebrating each and every moment of love with your loved ones. From waking up at sunrise in forts and palaces to boating in Lake Pichola at sunset, you will feel nothing less than a king or a queen. It would feel like even nature is a part of this celebration and it would witness every blissful moment you are having.
And if you’re not in love with someone, then better do not enter this magical environment or you’ll fall in love.
Royal palaces and forts will make you look back to history
Most of us literally hated history when they were just some pages in the textbooks of our school but when it comes to the history of Udaipur it will not just teach you some really interesting things but will take you to the time of past. By looking at the walls and structure of these amazing forts and palaces you will actually live the time period that was lived by the kings and queens back then. The royalty of Udaipur is nothing less than the other assets of it, so if you do not want to experience the royalty of the city, you shouldn’t visit Udaipur.
Once you visit Udaipur, it will invite you repeatedly
Udaipur is such a place that you can never get enough of. Apart from the fact that the number of places that Udaipur has, cannot be enjoyed on a single visit, there’s just something in its walls, its sculptures, its people, its street and basically everything that will invite you again and again to the city. So you just can’t quit coming and staying in Udaipur at just once, you will have to keep coming for a number of times to satisfy your soul. And if you are just not ready for that, you better not visit it.
The beauty of lakes and landscapes will hypnotize you
Udaipur which is also known as ‘city of lakes’ is a place full of natural and artificial lakes. Along with the lakes comes its blissful surroundings and eye-pleasing landscapes. Lakes like Badi, Fatehsagar, Pichola will give you a sight that you wouldn’t be able to forget for your entire life. It will make you forget all the worries of your life and you will feel like this is the only place where you truly want to be. When you sit at the edge of a lake, you will be so hypnotized by the beauty around it that you won’t be able to leave the place.
But not everyone wants to get hypnotized by nature, isn’t it?
Fatehsagar – the heart of the city
It is literally the heart of the city. If you look for Fatehsagar in google maps, you’ll see that the lake is heart shaped. It is not just a place, it’s a feeling for every Udaipurite. It’s a feeling of peace and calm. It’s a feeling of relaxation when after a long day you sit on the pal of the lake and the winds just take away all your tiredness. It’s a feeling when school and college kids hang out with their friends every evening giving the place its youthfulness. It a feeling of togetherness when you find people of different color, caste, city, country, and age that no matter what there’s this place that binds everyone together.
So in case you’re not ready to feel all of that, Fatehsagar or even Udaipur is not the place to have a visit to.
Above all these reasons, Udaipur is a city of love and compassion. It’s a city which makes everyone fall in love with itself. You will often hear people saying that ‘there’s no other city such as Udaipur’ and that is quite true, I tell you. Love it or hate it but you just won’t be able to forget the city.
What do you think of Udaipur? Tell us your story in the comment section.
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.
Even after exploring all the places in the world, at the end of the day, every Udaipurite will only say ‘There’s no better place than Udaipur’. No matter how much fun we have otherwise but the feeling of home can only be felt in this city. So, there are few feelings that only an Udaipurite can connect to-
Evenings at Fatehsagar
Back in my school days, I remember, I and my friends used to bunk our coaching and used to go to Fatehsagar. There is something in this place that doesn’t tire your eyes even if you are visiting here for the millionth time. The serene feeling you get while sitting on the pal, looking at the sunset and cool breeze taking all your worries away, for a moment it feels like it’s the only thing you’re living for.
Streets of Old city
Old city doesn’t look old any day. It is one part of the city which always looks decorated with different colors in the shops and all the traditional clothes and jewelry on the display of the shops. While walking in the streets of Old City with all the foreign travelers accompanying you it seems like you are walking in a different part of the city.
Monsoon and Peepliya
Whenever sky pours Udaipur with drops of heaven the first place that comes to mind is Peepliya. While I am writing about it I can literally visualize the entire road and place surrounded by fog. One cannot see more than a meter on the road, the fog is that thick. Tiny droplets of water will neither completely wet you nor will keep you dry. It feels like you are entering a place in the sky via road.
School picnics at Haldighati
When I was 11, the school announced a picnic to Haldighati. The first thought that came to my mind was that does this place has Haldi (turmeric) instead of sand? Well, to my disappointment it wasn’t. But I’m sure every other child would’ve thought the same. I was in awe of Maharana Pratap when I learned the history of him back then. The name of the place still takes me to one of my favorite memories of childhood.
Family outings at Ubeshwarji and Chandni Village
In the season of outings, these are the places that come to the mind of everyone’s family members. I’m sure all of you have visited this place with your entire family at least once. Sometimes we even take all the eatables there and make it a day. Jumping into the water with your siblings and coming back with empty stomachs to hot pakoras is not a distant memory, is it?
Weekends at Sukhadiya Circle
Boating in the pond of Sukhadiya Circle, having ‘chana jor garam’ in the garden and eating at one of the stalls outside was the plan on almost all weekends back then. Every Udaipurite has one favorite stall at Sukhadiya Circle. Although the craze for boating has reduced in Udaipur a bit, the kid in us still enjoys this place.
While every city is beautiful, there’s no place like Udaipur. What connects you to Udaipur? Tell me in the comment section below, I’ll be glad to hear.
