Nehru Garden

Located amidst the tranquil waters of Fateh Sagar Lake, Nehru Garden is an island of serenity. During the monsoon season, Udaipur experiences heavy rainfall, which transforms Nehru Garden into a lush green oasis. The garden boasts an array of plants and flowers, including lotus, water lilies and roses. The monsoon showers intensify the vibrancy of these blooms, rendering Nehru Garden a truly magical destination. Beyond its breathtaking beauty, the garden offers various activities for visitors. You can embark on a boat ride to reach the island garden or hop aboard the charming toy train that meanders through its verdant landscapes. Additionally, the garden provides an ideal setting for a delightful picnic lunch or dinner, or you can simply unwind and relish the serene ambience.

Dharohar at Bagore Ki Haveli

Immerse yourself in Rajasthan's rich culture with a visit to Bagore Ki Haveli. Dharohar is a cultural show that showcases traditional Rajasthani folk dance, music and puppetry. For anyone exploring Udaipur, this show is an absolute must-see. The performance commences with traditional Rajasthani folk dances, including Ghoomer, Kalbelia and Kachchhi Ghodi. Following the dance performances, the spotlight shifts to a puppet show, an age-old Rajasthani art form that narrates tales from Indian mythology and folklore. The grand finale of the Dharohar is the Rajasthani fire dance, an exhilarating display where dancers skillfully manipulate fire torches. The entire experience at Bagore Ki Haveli is nothing short of extraordinary, offering a profound insight into Rajasthani culture.

Lake Pichola

Lake Pichola is a beautiful lake located in the heart of Udaipur. Heavy rainfall during the monsoon season in Udaipur causes the water level to rise, which transforms the lake into a stunning sight. This enhances the beauty of the surrounding islands, palaces, temples and mansions, making it a must-visit during your Udaipur trip. To truly experience Lake Pichola during the monsoon, a boat ride is highly recommended. Besides boat rides, you can unwind on the lake's bank and enjoy the stunning scenery or you can visit one of the many cafes and restaurants that line the lake.

City Palace

Udaipur's City Palace, an architectural marvel fusing Rajasthani and Mughal styles, is a testament to the city's royal heritage. In the monsoon, gentle raindrops grace its marble courtyards and lush gardens, evoking a captivating ambience. The palace offers splendid vistas of Lake Pichola and the nearby hills during this season, often veiled in mist, adding to the enchantment. Besides the scenery, the palace complex houses various museums and galleries, along with a boat ride option to Jag Mandir, a charming island palace within Lake Pichola.
