1. Begin your day by visiting Jagdish temple-

Nothing better than starting your day by visiting Jagdish Temple and paying respect to God.

3. Visit lake Pichola and Ambrai Ghat-

Undoubtedly, the most visited place in Udaipur by the tourists, Lake Pichola is surrounded by hills, magnificent temples and hotels. Tourists can enjoy the beautiful sunset and alluring city lights.

Situated on the banks of Lake Pichola, Ambrai Ghat is a paradise for photographers. The best thing about Ambrai Ghat is that it gives the best view of the city from every direction. The place is often crowded on weekends. Best time to visit Ambrai Ghat is during sunset.

4. Evening walk at Gulab Bagh Garden-

Spread over 100 acres of land, Gulab Bagh garden is the largest garden of Udaipur and it is heaven for all flora lovers. Approximately 3000 people visit the garden every day. There are dozens of activities one can do in the Garden. The best time to visit Gulab Bagh is during early morning or evening as the temperatures are comparatively cooler.

For all the avid readers, you can visit the historic Saraswati Bhawan library.

5. Chilling at Fateh Sagar Lake-

What better way to end the day than spending an evening at Fateh Sagar lake. The lake looks stunning during the night and it attracts thousands of visitors during the day.

5 things I hate about The Celebration Mall, Udaipur

The Celebration Mall Logo
This Logo is a Property of The Celebration Mall and is taken from their website


The Celebration Mall, Bhuwana : A joint development of CapitaMalls Asia & AIPL (Advance India Project Limited) is the first and only Heritage Mall of Udaipur offering wide ranging services of a Mall. But there are certain things we hate about it and it will be really appreciable if they can work on this.. !! And make this Mall – A happening place to Be πŸ™‚

Proper Drinking Facility:

While checking out the complaint/suggestion book of the celebration mall I found that the most hated problem is of “Drinking Water Facility”. This problem is prolonging and no one is taking care of it. Can’t the mall Authorities add Proper Drinking facilities in the Mall to facilitate people???

No Personal Celebration in Celebration Mall:

For this point I would refer to one of the incidents me and my friends faced.. ! It was one of my friends birthday and we all planned to have birthday celebration in our ‘Celebration’ Mall. We were ready with the birthday cake but there was no place to cut the cake; Finally we found our space on the 3rd Floor in front of the local shoppee zone. We found a table to place the birthday cake and when we were about to cut the cake the security guards caught us all and stopped us to ‘Celebrate’.Β  So My question is why can’t a Mall named ‘THE CELEBRATION MALL’ have some space(apt suggestion for this will be to get a FOOD COURT soon!) to really ‘celebrate’ Waiting to hear the answer from them.. πŸ˜‰

Not enough place to sit:

How do you feel when after buying a McDonald’s Meal on Sunday you don’t find enough space to sit comfortably and have your meal. I hope that sentence was enough to describe my feelings. This BIG Mall with 90,000 sq. ft Area don’t even have enough space to make proper seating for people who come there. πŸ™‚ Anyways.. I hope they improve this too πŸ˜€

No Locker Rooms:

Again would add my personal incident in this heading.. πŸ˜› Being a responsible citizen I always care to wear Helmet as my Local Traffic Police suggests. One fine day me along with my friends planned to go for movie; Maybe it was my first time to enter into celebration mall with a Helmet. πŸ˜› When we went to PVR we found that no valuables were allowed inside. There was no place to keep our helmet or bags in the complete mall. As my tickets were already booked so I had to keep my Helmet outside in open space(maybe some construction site inside!!). After enjoying the movie with fear of losing my Helmet when we came out I found that I have really lost my HELMET worth : 1200Rs.Β  I don’t know whom should I blame is it the Mall Authority or PVR. I had my point so stated it here πŸ˜›

Official Website ain’t updated about Events:

Every now and than there are various events that keep happening in The Celebration Mall (Maybe In order to prove itself that it really celebrates :/ ) but their Official Website: is never updated about these events and schedules or even photos of these events.. πŸ™ Its our generous suggestion to keep us all updated about your mall happenings through your site because we have more reasons to love it than to rather have 5 things to hate about it πŸ™‚

There are still many points people hate such like not being allowed to clicks pictures inside, can’t run or have fun inside etc. Do Share your comments what are your views about the celebration mall. We will definitely inform the Mall Authorities and wait for their answers about this.. πŸ˜‰
