City Palace Museum Overview

Ranked 5 of 184 sightseeing in Udaipur

City Palace Museum provides an insight into the culture and history of the Maharanas of Mewar. Opened in 1969, the museum displays royal family photographs. The museum was opened to the public, in order to generate income and maintain the building, after India became a democracy.

Overseen by the Maharana of Mewar Charitable Foundation, the museum also houses personal portraits of Shriji Arvind Singh Mewar. Artworks, which document royal history before Udaipur got its first camera in 1857, adorn the interior of the museum. The collections of the museum are evenly spread out in the edifice that is 33 meters high, 333 meters long and 90 meters wide.

What a beautiful royal monument.

When we visited Udaipur, we reached to city palace museum, one of the best royal fort of Udaipur build by mewar dynasty rular maharaja Udaipur singh second. Any can also visit lake pichola just near by the this palace ... So many other monuments were also there like jag palace, jagdish temple, and lake palace and so on beautiful monuments to visit for tourist located nearly. We spend around 2 hrs to complete explore the fort ... Beautiful architect miture of Maugham and rajputana style made this palace very special and awesome. Whole city veiw could be seen from the top of the palace ... Awesome experience and the beauty of art from royal period gives it a excellent touch ... Must visit.

The Rajput history lives here

City palace has organised preservation of suryavanshi rajput lineage. The artefacts date back to 400 hundred years. It sheds light on the life of Maharana Pratap and his struggles.

Big Palace

It is a good place. It is a big Palace, after you come out you may realize you have lost 3 to 5 kg. Overall good but no cameras allowed. You need to take coupon sort of thing same fee charged for cameras. Nice views and some historical equipments, art and accessories of Rajas and his family.

Too much rush and crowd with poor management

The place is good if you can sit, enjoy and feel the mightiness. But the tour is just rush rush rush, too much pushing lot of people flirting and taking advantage of crowd. There are people to manage but there is no process or system, maybe as it was Diwali time. Overall I didn't find it worth the money and time.
