    Great view of the city from the top
    Great view of the entire city from the top, must visit for the view only. Not much of historical artifacts though. Entry to the fort is through the Sajjangarh Biological park. A male spotted deer accompanied us quite a while on our way to the fort. On the flip side, ticketing is mismanaged. You have to get down from your car to buy tickets while your car waits in the queue. Other option is leave ur car at the ground and take their boleros to top. If you are a group of 3-4, taking your own car makes sense.

    Lovely views
    The fort offers a beautiful view of the sunset but usually is crowded so make sure to reach early to grap a spot. The place right next to the entry offers a lovely view of udaipur. There nothing much to do here other than the view. The way to the palace goes through hilly roads so is fun.If you are on a tight schedule for udaipur this can be skipped. There is an entry fees aproxx 110/ person + Vehicle charges are there too

    Nice view of the complete city from top, Palace is disappointing
    Being at the top of the hill overlooking the city, you get beautifully views of the city and both the lakes. We visited the palace in the morning but have read a lot of reviews about amazing views during sunset. The palace itself doesn’t really have anything left to see. There just a few things made to promote wildlife tourism of Rajasthan. But the views are amazing and if you have time, you must visit. The road leading to the palace has a lot of curves and steep climbs so if you are on rented bikes and not very comfortable driving you can park you bikes at the entrance and take a ride in the cars available at the entrance at a cost.

    Go for the view, and nothing else
    A lovely view, especially at sunset. As the palace is just a run down empty shell don't expect more than just the view. There is a restaurant, but I can't comment as I didn't try it. I also enjoyed the walk down the mountain as, unlike in the old town, you can walk unimpeded by traffic for approx 4km.

    Panoramic View
    The Sajjangarh Monsoon Palace is situated on a hilltop. The palace is made of white marbel, it has a decent architecture. The entry fee is Rs. 110 per pax and vehicle entry is Rs. 305. It was around 5-10 minutes’ drive through well-maintained hill road to reach the palace. We visited the place in the late morning, the palace offers beautiful panoramic view of the city, lakes, palaces and surrounding countryside. However, there is nothing much to explore inside the palace except panoramic views and photo ops. There is a restaurant available on the top, as we didn’t try, hence cannot comment further. Overall a visit may be recommended to witness the beautiful panoramic view.

    Sunset is worth every hype.
    There is nothing to view at the palace except sunset. The sunset view is to die for. Must visit during sunset. Plan accordingly that you get just in time for that. Had to wait 2 hours to watch that since we though that during that time we could explore tha palace.

    Fabulous views over Udaipur and the Aravali range. Take cash for tickets !
    This Monsoon palace offers one of the best sunset views over Udaipur. You need to stop and purchase entry tickets at the bottom of the hill and proceed by vehicle up an incredible zig zagging mountain road ( preferably by two or four wheel vehicle!). TAKE CASH to pay for your entry as payment options do not include international cards. The palace itself is not in tip top condition but the views back over the city and westwards over the Aravali range are breathtaking. Well worth the ticket price and trip and would highly recommend this is part of your itinerary. Watch out for cheeky monkeys grabbing food around the car park area. Toilet facilities are terrible for such a prominent tourist site. There are lots of restaurant options around the entrance to the Monsoon palace and one restaurant at the palace itself which we did not try.

    Ideal for Sunset and Panaromic Views of City
    The fort was built in 1884 AD by Maharana Sajjan Singh to enjoy the Monsoons and hence also known as Monsoon Palace. Now it comes under forest department. Entry Ticket is 155 bucks and extra 106 bucks for the Jeep in case you don’t have personal vehicle. This fort is ideal to witness scenic sunsets and panoramic views of the city.

Tuktuk journey to entrance. Surprised at cost of ticket, 505R per person plus another 106R each for jeep up to the poorly maintained palace. Views were nice although nothing spectacular.

Personally I would not advise anyone to part with their money. They are ripping off foreign tourists. Much better options available such as City Palace which was superb

How do they justify ticket price? The cost of entrance ticket is INR 505 plus cost of ride to the top and when you get there the condition of the Palace is a disgrace compared to similar ticket price for City Palace. Monsoon Palace is abusing the ticket price, taking a lot of money and delivering nothing.

Do not waste your time or money.

I would not recommend this place to anyone who values their time and money. It is a waste of both. There are many other places in Udaipur that offer better views and services. Sajjangarh fort is a disgrace to the city’s heritage and tourism.

We visited Sajjangarh fort in Udaipur with high expectations of witnessing a beautiful sunset from the top of the hill. However, we were very disappointed by the poor management and misguiding staff at the fort.

We reached the ticket counter around 4:30 pm and were told to go to the sanctuary next door and come back before 6 pm for the sunset view. We followed their advice and came back to the ticket counter around 5:30 pm. They made us wait for 30 minutes to take us on the top. After reaching on the top around 6 pm, we were shocked to learn that they would close the fort at 6:30 pm. We felt cheated and angry as we had paid for the tickets and wasted our time. The staff at the top were rude and unhelpful. They did not care about our satisfaction at all.

The view on the top was undoubtedly beautiful, but our experience was completely spoiled by the irresponsible behavior of the staff and management. They made us wait for another 30 minutes on the way back and brought us down at 7 pm. They could have let us enjoy the view until 7 pm if that’s what they wanted to do. Also, they had no way of knowing the number of people they need to bring down in the last ride. The management was extremely hopeless and inefficient.
