Are 2 days enough for Udaipur?

The answer is Yes. With two days in Udaipur, India's Lake City, you'll have enough time to see the romantic city's majestic palaces and temples while also having enough time to embark on a day excursion into the Rajasthani desert for more spectacular architecture.Here’s one way to do it.

Day 1:

  • Morning: Spend the morning visiting the stunning City Palace complex, which consists of 11 interconnected royal palaces on the shores of Lake Pichola. The City Palace Museum, a remarkable display of historic cannon, regalia, and other items from the previous five centuries, should not be missed.
  • Afternoon: After lunch, visit the city's famed Jagdish Temple, which is just a short walk from the City Palace. Then head to the outskirts of town to see the views from the spectacular Monsoon Palace, a 9-story edifice that was originally utilized by royals to watch the monsoon clouds flow past.
  • Night: Finish your evening with a romantic meal at Jag Mandir, a magnificent palace complex in the heart of Lake Pichola. Most nights, opulent buffet meals are provided here, and a boat journey out to the island to eat is an amazing way to finish your first day in Udaipur.

Day 2:

  • Morning: Get up early and make your way to Kumbhalgarh, which is home to the world's second-largest wall (behind the Great Wall of China). This massive fort was built in the 15th century and reaches 1,200 feet (365 meters) above sea level. The journey there is half the enjoyment, and it includes a trip through the Aravalli mountains that surround the town.
  • Afternoon: It takes around an hour and a half by automobile from Kumbhalgarh to Ranakpur, which is noted for its spectacular 15th-century Jain Temple. This massive complex has a number of smaller temples, most of which are composed of finely carved marble and pillars. If you're pressed for time and want to return to Udaipur by nightfall, skip Ranakpur and instead stop on the way back from Kumbhalgarh in Eklingji, a temple town with 108 temples of varied sizes, the most of which are dedicated to Lord Shiva.
  • Night: If you choose to visit Ranakpur, you will most likely not return to Udaipur until late in the evening. If you do make it back in time, a magnificent sound-and-light display at the City Palace is a wonderful way to spend your final evening in Udaipur.
