History neglected

Historic place but hugely neglected. The only thing it offers currently is the view of Udaipur City.

Its not famous in Udaipur and not a good deal to visit this place specially. you can club it with city tour if you are a history lover.

Well worth a trip to the top to see the views across Udaipur via the cable cars. Temple at the top and the remains of a palace; you can also walk along the city walls.

This is a small hill with a temple on top. The city view from top of this hill is marvelous. You can go to this place in mornings, you can take gondola or climb.

A temple on the top & Eklingji fort are the places to visit on Machla Magra which means "a hillock like a fish".A privately run ropeway takes one to the top with all sort of wrong info to extract the money fron the gullible tourists. Take the least expensive ride.

While cruising Lake Pichola, look up the hill behind Jagmandir Island (Octopussy's house), and you'll see an old fort in ruins and two white cupolas. The location is called Machla Magri or Fish Hill. I took a tuk-tuk to this place from the Jagdish Temple for 50 rupees. Reaching there under 10 minutes, I realized the fare was a ripoff.... More
