Tagged as one of the finest romantic destinations in India, Udaipur promises a rewarding holiday and nostalgic memories to cherish! Here’s some info on top five lures of the city for those netting deals on tickets aboard flights to the destination.
Affectionately called the ‘City of Lakes’, Udaipur remains one of the preferred choices among most holidaymakers contemplating to reserve tickets on India bound flights. Featuring tranquil lakes, majestic palaces, grand havelis, rugged Aravalli Hills and typical Rajasthani culture – this former British colony entices hordes of travellers to look for cheap deals on holiday packages including travel tickets. Let’s explore some of the many unique attractions of the city.
Lake Pichola is a prominent tourist attraction in Udaipur and visited by locals as well as foreign travellers landing on flights in western India. Named after the nearby Picholi village, this picturesque water body reflects the surrounding mountains on its wavy water. Though the lake is shallow most of the time, travellers visiting during monsoon are often found on a quest for ferry tickets to reach the artificial islands and the City Palace garden.
Reserving tickets on India flights to visit Udaipur and not taking a tour of the City Palace is not something anyone should do! Mounted with beautifully adorned balconies and huge domes, this royal residence is an incredible example of brilliant combination of Rajput and Mughal architecture. Constructed over a period of few centuries, this grand marble structure is situated majestically at the summit of a hillock and offers a panoramic view of the surroundings. Holidaymakers can buy tickets at the Badi Pol (entrance gate) to take a tour of Jagdish Mandir, Mor Chowk, Durbar Hall, Palace Museum and Sheesh Mahal.
For holidaymakers reserving tickets aboard flights arriving in India and seeking isolation from the hustle and bustle of the hectic city life, Sunset Point in Udaipur is perhaps the ideal place to head to. Visitors can purchase tickets for a cable car ride to swing over the Machla Marga hill and give flights to their imagination while witnessing the breathtaking sight of Lake Pichola. Besides, one can stroll along the crisscrossing road to reach the tip of Machla Marga and visit the ruins of Eklingarh Fort and Karni Mata Temple.
Founded by Maharana Jagat Singh, one of the rulers of Udaipur, Jagdish Temple is visited by a good number of tourists, especially spiritual souls, all through the year. The main shrine is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The elaborated wall carvings depict the typical Indo-Aryan architectural brilliance, while the black-stone idol of Lord Vishnu and the brass idol of Lord Garuda (a supernatural eagle-like being that serves as Vishnu’s mount) fascinate the sculptural lustre of Indian artists. Though this holy place of worship receives thousands of visitors round the year, during the Rathayatra festival, many local pilgrims are found struggling for tickets on flights to the township.
Located few kilometres from Fateh Sagar Lake, Shilpagram was inaugurated by Rajiv Gandhi, one of the former Prime Ministers of India, in 1989. This place exhibits the rural lifestyle of the tribal people of the western part of India including Rajasthan, Goa, Gujarat and Maharashtra. Visitors purchasing tickets to enter the premises can witness the shining mirrored interior and works of village folks. Shilpagram is one of the best places for souvenir shopping. Tourists can buy various gift items made of wood, local fabric, terracotta or metal. However, if you are planning a vacation in Udaipur and wishing to experience the rustic flavour of India, December is the best time to board flights to the city.
