There's lot to see & know in the City Palace Museum, so it is recommended to hire a guide. It will take around a little more than an hour to see the museum.

Though Rajasthan is known for palaces but the City Palace of Udaipur is best among all. The palace is grandeur and splendid in look. The narrow passages heading to large halls are strategically designed. Can visit any time in the year.

What a lovely way to spend an evening. By day it operates as a museum and at night they put on a show of Folk dance and puppetry. Great way to spend an evening.

Great place, lot of history collected, but guides will always rush you and won't allow you to see it in peace, my suggestion don't do guides here as everything is well documented.
