Daylight melts into a palette of dreams,
As twilight weaves its gentle streams!

1. Sunset silhouettes at Karni Mata Temple, where prayers meet the horizon

Sunsets are the most beautiful things that creates value to the places to visit in Udaipur. Udaipur is popular during sunset when you can find an unobstructed view of how different symphony of colors providing a fleeting delight. There are many places in Udaipur where beautiful sunsets are viewed.

The most beautiful sunset is from the sunset point garden from where there is an excellent view of the dusk and weekly held musical fountain show. The show is held every Monday after the twilight. It is located at the southeastern part of Pichola lake by the side of Dudh Talai and ahead of M.L. Verma park. It is one of the most visited gardens in Udaipur. Along with this, there is a ropeway that helps in giving us a tremendous outlook of the city. Not only the temple, the view is itself one of the most spectacular point where the sunrise is also treasured. Udaipurites are blessed to have beautiful sunset and sunrise and between sunset and sunrise the weather and green environment at the top of the hill is such a blessing for all!

2. Monsoon Palace: where clouds embrace heritage

It is situated in the Aravali mountains, 3100m above sea level, the enchanting Monsoon Palace that can be spotted from Udaipur from all sides. To the foot of the mountain, the ride to the monsoon palace is far and by this it is meant that tuk – tuk from the city is to be hired. The walk to the palace is 1 hour uphill and there are other surrounding views that are captured while the travel to the palace. By boosting the panoramic views of the city, the monsoon palace is one of the best places where the enlightened city lights are captured from top of the hill.

It is considered as one of the decent spots in Udaipur and by this the 360 degree view of the city is made possible by the hues of sunset and sunrise. It is one of the most treasured palace since the historic times where the Raja Maharaja’s of Udaipur used to stay. List it in your bucket if planning to stay for nights and days in Udaipur!
