"This place is magical. It takes me to the past and leaves me wondering what would it be like to live in a ruling house. The museum is decent (tough overpriced as 500 per person for just a museum is something too expensive for Indians). Best for visiting in monsoon."

"What a gr8 place to see in India.I have never seen a palace with such a beauty.Omg the cleaniness is at its height.The road outside the palace will give you the feel that you are in venice or somewhere else in a foreign land.That is why Udaipur is better called as "The Venice of the East"."

"This is the palace where the royal kings used to live. Man Singh was the last king lived here. Half of the palace is open to public and the other half is where the princess and her mother lives now. The palace has museums and showcases for handicrafts. A beautiful palace in true sense which remind of those royal days. "
