Once you've driven to the top the views over udaipur and the mountains are breath taking. That's the best bit by far. The palace is a ruin but you are still able to walk around it.

I am big fan of monuments and old buildings and MP ranks on the top few for me. The location, the setting, the views and the Palace itself are an essentially Udaipur experience and not to be missed at any cost when in town and if you can make it just before sunset, you are guaranteed amazing panoramic views of...

Considering how difficult it is to get to (a long way outside of Udaipur), there is not much here apart from the view across the city and surrounding hills. You can walk through the 'palace' but it is stripped out and not maintained at all. If you're short on time, this is one you can skip.

Looks better in the Bond film, but for flick loc tickers, on the list. Unkempt up close, but the winding drive up opens the vistas over Udaipur. Should only be rating this 'Average' but got generous daydreaming of Kristina Wayborn Rapunzelling from the balcony.

This is one of the top most place in Udaipur. Palace has nothing extra ordinary to offer on itself, visit it for the views of complete Udaipur city on one side and beautiful hill ranges on the other. Palace needs a proper maintenance to enhance the overall experience.

The views are incredible but the actual palace is pretty bare with not much to see. Not really worth the money.

This palace is located within the Sajjangarh fort which is located at a high elevation. Monsoon palace was built as summer residence of the royal family. It is surrounded by forests on all sides. The palace was built also with the intention of keeping track of the monsoon winds to predict the rains etc. and hence the name Monsoon palace.
