    Historical Temple
    Jagdish Temple is situated just outside the city palace, a short walk from the city palace is needed for visit. However, the walk to the temple is through marketplace, hence one may encounter salesmen in-between, individual discretion is recommended in dealing with them. This is an old temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The temple has an attractive architecture with curved pillars, elegant ceilings and painted walls. As the temple is made on elevated platform, one has to climb over 30 odd stiff marble stairs for visit and offering prayer and puja. Puja offerings (like flowers, prasad) are available at the footstep of the temple. A visit to this ancient temple along with City Palace is recommended.

    Impressive architecture with faithful following
    It was quite a steep climb up the steps from street level but it was worth it. The sheer number of intricate carvings was impressive. Equally impressive was the growing number of devoted followers in the early evening

    A Kaleidoscope of Colors and Carvings!
    Jagdish Temple is more like a mini palace for Lord Vishnu! This 3-story wonder glitters with intricate carvings, from dancing elephants to colourful deities. Inside, the main shrine holds a stunning black stone Lord Vishnu statue, radiating peace. But don't miss the smaller shrines dedicated to other gods – each a unique gem. Bonus points for the rooftop views & friendly atmosphere! A must-see in Udaipur, whether you're spiritual or just love stunning architecture. #UdaipurMustSee #JagdishTemple #DivineVibes #ArchitecturalGems #IndiaTravels

    Beautifully carved temple
    Free to enter this temple. Beautifully carved marble exterior. People were performing ceremonies inside while we were visiting. Beware of a guy trying to take you into a side door off the temple to sell you paintings. He is a scam artist widely spoken about on this site. We went in and I saw the paintings at the end of the room and as he started to explain about some paintings on the wall we turned around and left.

Jagdish temple, which is situated just outside of the City Palace complex. It is another architectural marvel built by the Mewar dynasty. The temple is built with Indo-Aryan style of construction, and it gives the temple a rather distinct nature that can’t be overlooked. Lush halls, a carved ceiling and pillars, along with gorgeously painted halls are some of the highlights of Jagdish temple. Before you plan a visit, here are some interesting things about the temple.

You have to step up so many stairs.

Jagdish temple was built in 1651 just outside the City Palace. It's on 2 mins walking distance from the City Palace and situated in middle of the famous Jagdish chownk market having various quirky handicraft shops, cool cafes, amazing ghats and havelis. One should visit this place for it's majestic architecture.

Beautiful temple, with gorgeously sarved statues. When I reached there, a puja was taking place. Foreigners, beware of a nice man who will speak to you in French and be very friendly, will explain the story of the temple etc. In the end he will propose that you see a shop inside the temple where they sell miniature paintings. To be honest, the work was very beautiful and I did end up purchasing something there (at way to high a price, but I was not in the mindset to bargain). But notheless, be careful if you do not want to feel pressured into buying anything.

This temple is at a walking distance from the City Palace Museum. If you exit the City Palace from the Badi Pol, walk through the Hathi Pol Bazar, you'll reach the temple. It's at a busy intersection (means no parking).

A steep flight of stairs from the road takes you to the main temple. There's space outside the temple to remove & keep your shoes. The stone carvings are outstanding. It reminded us of the Ranakpur temples.

The spire is quite high; it dominates the skyline. It's gratifying to get a glimpse of Lord Vishnu in the temple.

A major highlight of this city is the 7 pm arti where the chants take you into a trance! seeing the devotion of the local people and participating in their ritualistic songs and celebrations is unique.
Go a little early to marvel at the unique architectural design and highly detailed reliefs.... if you love art and sculptures, then this is the place to be.
Sadly this is not handicapped friendly though it has railing for its roughly 100 step climb. It is located near the City Palace and a 5 mins walk from Lal and Gangor Ghat.

Jagdish temple is located in the old city of Udaipur, near the city palace. It is a large temple complex dedicated to Lord Vishnu. One has to climb up 32 stairs , as the temple is raised on a tall terrace. The architecture of the temple is beautiful.

We visited the temple during our visit to Udaipur. We reached the temple around 10 am and the aarti and bhajan was being conducted. We attended the same and really enjoyed the darshan. Felt peace at an inner level alongwith a feeling of joy. I was so happy that returned back to the temple next day before leaving.

Must visit if you are planning to go to Udaipur.

Jagdish is the oldest temple in Udaipur, some 400 years old. It’s also located close to the City Palace and in the old city, so easy to find. No entrance fees but being a temple, remove you socks and shoes and once inside, no photography.

We had a brief, quiet wander into the temple itself, always fascinating to see others at worship and the importance of the temple.

The outside building remains in excellent condition and the carvings are beautiful.

Unfortunately we were approached by a gentleman who insisted he was a government employee and just wanted to show us around. Uncertain as to the validity of this statement we politely explained we just wanted to wander around. He left but then returned 10 minutes later, encouraged us into a side building and then tried to sell us paintings, which though beautiful were of no interest. At that point we just left when we really should have taken some more time to enjoy the architecture.

Go early to avoid the crowds and heat. Avoid the salesman and allow 30 minutes.
