This museum can easily be done in an hour or so, as it is not that big. But it has a really neat showroom full of handmade puppets dressed in traditional Indian attire -- super fun! There are also several rooms with beautiful mosaic tiling, so be sure to check that out as well.

The highlight of the museum is their dance show that they put on every night. It is about 2 hours and you get to see traditional dances by amazingly talented women and listen to authentic Indian instruments. Definitely a must-see show!!

During our visit to Udiapur, we visited the 18th century Bagore Ki-Haveli, which once served as the home for Prime Minister of Mewar. The building, which is located directly on the shores of Lake Pichola is now a museum and location for nightly puppet and musical performances, making it a very nice heritage attraction to visit when in the city.

Bagore Ki-Haveli apparently has over 100 rooms inside but most are off limits. Those which are open for visitation have various cultural displays. These included a few small rooms exhibiting local wedding processions, rituals and costume hall, a room with a series of turbans from various areas of Rajasthan, a room with ivory statues as well as upstairs rooms, decorated in historical manner including items that might have been found here in the past.

What we liked best about Bagore Ki-Haveli was accessing the rooftop and seeing the lovely views of the lake and surrounding city. Also, we very much enjoyed seeing the puppet room, which included so many lovely marionettes of various shapes, sizes and characters. It was just great to see, one of the more memorable things for us about Udiapur.

Unfortunately, the museum closed prior to the start of the puppet show so we were unable to attend during our recent trip but this is something that looked quite entertaining that other visitors might like to consider.

In the end, we recommend a visit to the Bagore Ki-Haveli, its worth an hour of your time when in Udiapur. We would definitely visit again the next time we find ourselves in Udiapur.

This place is most famous for evening program from 7 to 8. Usually it happens in open air, but as it was raining when we reached, they organized in a large hall. There are variety of performances, including various forms of rajasthani dances and puppet performances. At ticket price of just Rs 60, worth every Re . Should include in your travel if time permits.

Nice place if you fancy a more laidback evening in Udaipur, with folkdancing in a nic scenery. The haveli itself wa salso worth visiting during the daytime, nicely restored.

Their show surpassed our expectations. Their performers had lots of energy and seemed to be enjoying themselves a lot which is always nice to see. A beautiful setting for a performance too.
