    Serene place, must visit along with City Palace Udaipur
    An awesome must visit temple in Udaipur. You'll get attracted to the deity here and really enjoy the place. You should cover this while visiting City Palace itself as this is 5min walk from the rear exit of City Palace. However, do remember to retain the City Palace entrance tickets as you'll need to show them while entering back. This will take away any hassles of parking the car for this temple visit.

    Beautiful Temple of Vishnu
    Organized a tour in advance with a guide who was able to provide the historical and religious details to enhance our experience. We exited the rear city side gates of the Palace to walk down the hill to this awesome temple in the centre of Udaipur. It was around Diwali so there were plenty of people, had to remove shows before entering as is the norm.

    Vibrant
    400 Years old, Jagdish Temple is the largest temple in Udaipur, in the center and a short walk from City Palace. It is a wonder of Hindu iconography, where the keen photographer doesn't know what to snap first. Stories of hand carved sculptures depict musicians, dancers, elephants and innumerable deities. It is an active temple, so shoes off, sit back and show respect.

    Beautiful carvings/architecture - shame about the government salesman
    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.

    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

The sheer detail in the carved decoration of this temple is bewildering. Every surface bears a figure or symbol and it's noticable that the attention to detail is the same whether you look at ground level or on the highest reaches.
Take note of the huge marble disc that forms the top of the tower and then try to work out how the builders got it up there in a pre-industrial age.
