Udaipur Lover’s Amazing Guide to City

Udaipur Tourism

If you are a solo traveler or you want to spend your vacations with your family, the one place every kind of traveler dreams to visit is a small city in Rajasthan, known as Udaipur. Often called as the city of lakes, this city is blessed by nature as it is surrounded by lakes and other natural wonders like the Aravali Hills and has become the number one tourist spot for people all around the world. Be it a newly married couple or those who want their special day to be celebrated as a destination wedding, Udaipur will be their first choice.

View of City Palace from Lake Palace

Udaipur was established by Maharana Udai Singh of Mewar in 1559 AD and has served as the capital of his kingdom till 1818 AD when it became a British princely state. So, for almost two and a half centuries, Udaipur has experienced the Rajput royalty which also had an impact on the heritage and culture of this city. The glorious past of Udaipur fascinates many historians and travelers who love epic sagas of the Rajput kingdom. The antique architecture of Old palaces and streets shows us a glimpse of the ancient Udaipur even to this date.  All these historic elements are well preserved by the people of Udaipur even after their democratic independence several years ago.

Travel in Udaipur

Popular for its people, culture, folk dances and scenic beauty, Udaipur has been a wanderer’s lust. The land of *banna’s* and *baisa’s*, the city has grown from an ancient marvel to  a modern wonder. Old city will still give you a feeling of the historic era with its buildings and architecture but the development around the city will give you an idea of its modernization while keeping the heritage safe. Just to give you an idea of Udaipur’s development progress, it has been included in Indian Prime Minister’s 100 Smart Cities Development Program. It is famous for its culture and local art too. Folk dances performed by local artists are worth a watch. Miniature paintings, leather bags and hand-loom items are world famous because they are still manufactured by artists using ancient techniques and thus have very high demand outside. The royal Rajasthani Culture is settled deep down into the heart of local people and can be espied even in this modern era. Local festivals like Jagnnath Rath Yaatra and Gangaur Pooja are celebrated just like other mainstream festivals of India. Men and women dress up in traditional Rajasthani clothes for these festivals. Such festive rallies will give you a very beautiful insight of local traditions and culture of the city.

Even the cuisine of Udaipur is mouth watering. Dal-Bati-Choorma is one of the most consumed local cuisine in all over Rajasthan. Other than Dal-Bati, many other dishes like Ker-Sangri and gatte ki sabzi also add up into a must have local cuisine chart. Street food is amazing in Udaipur with various joints available in almost every busy street, especially the food joint at Sukhadia Circle.

Udaipur is known as the Venice of East as it is surrounded by lakes which are also considered as the lifeline of the city. It was originally established on the banks of Lake Pichola and later the city expanded to the outer skirts. Fabulous lakes like Fatehsagar attracts tourists from all over the world and is a must see spot. Udaipurites call it the heart of their city. The adjoining food market, called the Mumbai Bazaar, will definitely put some twists in your taste buds. And the best part is – sipping the famous hot coffee of FS (that’s what Udaipur call it). One thing we can bet on places like Fatehsagar, your mind will get the peace it wants.

Moving towards the old city, you will experience a very different Udaipur. Local shops and buildings with palatial designs will leave you mesmerized. And then the architectural wonder that stands tall, right into the heart of Udaipur, is the City Palace – a historical beauty with majestic glory. The *ghats* beside the Lake Pichola  are best spots to get your thoughts together and relax peacefully.

उदयपुर और सर्दी का मौसम

समूचा उत्तर भारत कड़ाके की सर्दी और शीतलहर की चपेट में है। श्रीनगर से लेकर अमृतसर, दिल्ली, हिसार, जयपुर, लखनऊ और ग्वालियर सभी जगह सर्दी का प्रकोप नाक में दम किये हुए है। वैसे उदयपुर में भी सर्दी बेहद कहर ढा रही है। अल सुबह या शाम को सूरज ढलने के बाद तो घर से निकलना गुनाह के समान हो गया है। सर्दी की इस चपेट से मैं स्वयं भी नहीं बच पाया हूँ। सर्दी खाँसी ज़ुकाम से बेहाल होने के बाद घर बैठ कर मफलर लपेट कर और रजाई में दुबक कर रिपोर्टिंग करने का सौभाग्य विरले लोगों को ही नसीब होता है।

सर्दी ने लोगो की दिनचर्या के साथ साथ उनकी बोली भी बदल दी है। प्राय शांत रहने वाले भी किट किट करते नज़र आ रहे हैं। भगवान् को सुबह शाम याद करने वाले अब तो सारा दिन ॐ नमः शिवाय का जाप करते दिखते हैं, सर्दी के मारे। कुछ तो रशियन और स्पेनिश भी बोलते दिख रहे हैं। देखते जाइये ये सर्दी अभी और क्या क्या गुल खिलाती है। माफ़ कीजियेगा कमबख्त तबियत ख़राब होने की  वजह से रुमाल की ज़रूरत आन पड़ी है। यही तो रखा था, किधर गया?

इस सर्दी ने हमारी क्रिकेट टीम को भी नहीं बक्शा, उन्होंने भी आज (06 जनवरी 2013) के मैच में  जल्दी जल्दी आउट हो कर फटाफट पवेलियन में जा कर बैठने में ही अपनी भलाई समझी। वैसे हमारे खिलाड़ियों  ने सीरीज का अंतिम मैच जीत कर भारतीय टीम के खेमे में जीत की गर्मी ला दी है। आज सर्दी से बचने का इंतज़ाम कर लिया है हमारे कप्तान धोनी ने। आपकी तैयारी भी शायद कुछ ऐसी ही होगी।

लेकिन मैं बच्चों की हरकते देख कर हैरान हूँ, चाहे सर्दी कितनी ही क्यों न पड़ रही हो उनकी खेलने कूदने की क्षमता ज्यूँ की त्यूँ बरकरार बनी हुई है। बच्चों में बड़ो के मुकाबले बहुत ऊर्जा भरी होती है, अपनी इस ऊर्जा का उपयोग उन्हें कहीं न कहीं तो करना ही होता है। उदयपुर प्रशासन ने फिलहाल आठवी कक्षा तक के बच्चों के लिए अवकाश घोषित कर दिया है और उनको इस कडकडाती ठण्ड से निजात दिलाने की चेष्टा की है। चलिए आप और मैं प्रार्थना करते हैं की सर्दी पड़े मगर इसका प्रकोप इतना न हो की बच्चों को स्कूल भेजने के लिए सोचना पड़े।

यदि उदयपुर की बात करें तो बेशक मौसम विभाग का तापमापी बिंदु 4 डिग्री सेल्सियस पर अटका हो मगर यहाँ की कई जगहों पर तापमान बर्फ जमाने की कगार तक गिर गया है। आज ही के समाचार पत्र में फतेहपुरा के निकट बाहर खड़ी  कार की तस्वीर देखी जिस पर बर्फ जमी थी। इसी तरह यूनिवर्सिटी कैंपस और गुलाब बाग़ भी बेहद ठन्डे हैं। कहिये इतने ठन्डे मौसम में ऐसी जगह घूमने का खयाल भी आपके शरीर में सिरहन पैदा करने के लिए काफी है। फिर भी आप अगर माद्दा रखते हैं, तो बेशक घूमें आखिर शहर है आपका। और अगर आपकी इस बात पर कोई टोके तो आप बेहिचक कह सकते हैं “हाँ मैं क्रेजी हूँ”

तो उदयपुर वासियों लग रहा है ग्लोबल वार्मिंग जैसे ग्लोबल कूलिंग में तब्दील हो गयी है। खैर ये जो भी हो हम पर्यावरण के प्रति सचेत हो रहे हैं और उसका असर भी हमें समय रहते आज या कल कभी न कभी दिखेगा ज़रूर। फिलहाल इतनी सर्दी के मौसम में आप अपना खयाल रखें, सावधानी बरतें और खासकर बच्चों का विशेष ध्यान रखें। वैसे सरकार सर्दी से बचाने के लिए ग़रीब लोगों के लिए रैन बसेरे बनवाती है। आप भी अपने पुराने ऊनी कपड़े इत्यादि ज़रुरात्मंदो को देकर कुछ पुण्य का कार्य कर सकते हैं। आज की सर्दी के लिए फिलहाल इतना ही। आगे की सर्दी के लिए विशेष समाचार के लेकर हम आपकी सेवा में हाज़िर रहेंगे।

Welcoming The Season Of Hibernation – The Season Of Silent Love.

Hands in hands, a long walk along the pal of fatehsagar, shivering by the frosty breeze, holding a kulhad of hot sipping coffee and relishing soft romantic music in my ears.

It is a way to rejoice yourself in this chilling season.

For now, it was a day dream, I am sitting in the balcony of my room, fully loaded with sweater, scarf and socks, holding a large mug of coffee in my hands and earpieces plugged in my ears, eyes closed and dreaming of that fatehsagar scene.

Here I am. I am welcoming winters in my balcony, in my own way.


Usually not so wintry Udaipur, this time observing a much drop of temperature, a sudden thrush of cold breeze.

Winters….the cold season of the year, with icy shivering breeze and early morning dews. This is the most beautiful time, from November to February, when one can observe and silently feel the charming beauty which nature has given to us; it’s beautiful from one morning till next morning. For early morning we are provided by fog and mist, then mild warm rising sun which gives golden shade to the fallen drops of dew on the green flora.

It is the mausam to enjoy Gajar ka Halwa, Bajre ki Raab, Garma Garam Pakode, and various types of soups from our mother’s kitchen, the time to wander out on the streets to add the taste of Rewadi n Gud (Jaggery) Mungfali Chakki to our tongue, studying hard for our exams in the blankets, and to rejoice the perfect silent mode of nature. To add up, nature has given us a different swing of taste, grapes and oranges are the winter fruits.

But unfortunately, on the other hand of this seasonal celebration, there are many people for whom this biting cold brings  suffering; they are not the part of our enjoyment, they don’t have proper clothes to wear, no food and no shelter. This is an unfair part of our society that they are suffering and we are celebrating.

So udaipurities, prove your humanity, donate your old wears and some food to the needy people, so as to compensate their suffering to a little extent.

And in this way, with the new resolution in our life, we will be cherishing this cold season in a much better way.



Wishing you all a very happy and healthy winters.
