    Bagore Ki Haveli, an 18th-century mansion on the picturesque Lake Pichola, offers a captivating glimpse into Udaipur's royal past. Built in the 18th century this meticulously restored haveli now serves as a museum.

    Marvel at the architectural grandeur with vast courtyards whisper of royal gatherings, while ornate jharokhas (windows) and elegant archways frame breathtaking views of the lake. Inside, be captivated by breathtaking mirror work, intricate glasswork, and murals that showcase the era's finest craftsmanship.

    Conveniently located within a 1-mile radius of Udaipur's city center, Bagore Ki Haveli is easily accessible by local transport.

    can be better managed with more public facilities of rest room , water and umbrella's

    history is very well preserved here, food is expensive and very basic but overall a great sightseeing option specially if you are the lover of past and history

    I've been stalling to write this review because I havent been able to find the words how to express how much I loved this day, but here goes:

    I stumbled upon Indigo Art School because it was right near my hotel. I knew I wanted to take an art class while traveling in Udaipur, but I didn't have plans set in stone. I walked by here a few times and casually spoke with the owners - after checking out the reviews I decided to take an art lesson.

    First, I got to choose which animal I wanted to paint - I choose the elephant (mostly because its the easiest, but also because I love elephants!) The class is charged by the hour, but estimate that it will take you about 3 hours!

    It was such a calming, relaxing and creative experience. The guys were so kind and offered me tea, water, and snacks while I painted. I'm SHOCKED at how beautiful my painting came out (as I am definitely NOT a painter).

    What was more special to me was how the artists made me feel like family. The class was amazing and felt so special, but over the next few days, they showed their kindness even more. Every time I walked by they said hello, offered me masala chai and wanted to chat. They knew my stomach was bothering me and one day when I was walking stopped me to give me banana and coconut water!

    The people running this place are top-notch. They are talented, kind hearted and AMAZING artists.

    Carve out time on your trip to Udaipur to do this. You will not regret it.

    We visited the Museum, while travelling back from Kumbalgarh Fort (after enjoying Light and Sound Show) the previous night. Since we had seen Chittorgarh Fort earlier, the trip to the Museum was much more enjoyable. Amazing work by Dr Mohan Shrimali, who donated land, funds and time to construct the museum with society assistance. Very close to Nathdwara Temple, it is worth visiting by all proud Indians, who love our glorious past and great sacrifices by our ancestors

    Owned and run by two of the most beautiful people my memories of this place remain firmly embedded. I visited Udaipur and Gothwal a year ago with my daughter. We visited Gothwal Art two or three times, as we were staying nearby. Quality work, lovely lovely people with big hearts. I recall I even enjoyed tea at their shop. In the end I purchased two pieces of work which have taken me a year to get around to framing. We also purchased some small cards, one to give to our driver with our gift for looking after us for a couple of weeks. I could not recommend this establishment high enough and would love to return one day. :). Date of visit January 2023

    No holiday to Udaipur would be complete for me without a trip to Shyam Jethi’s little shop to look for a painting to take home, I have taken quite a few this year.

    Shyam’s forfathers used to entertain at the Mewar court, ask him to tell you about this and he is sure to offer you chai. If he has time he may even take you to the City Palace Museum and show you the wonderful collection of miniatures on display there, Shyam is also a very knowledgeable tour guide as I discovered on my trip in January.

    Throughout Covid lockdowns, when there were no tourists visiting Udaipur, Shyam has done his best to support some of the artists whose work he collects and sells in his shop, so that they could continue to paint and feed their families.

    Be sure to go upstairs to see some of the artists’ best work. Some of the miniatures here are very like those I have seen at London’s famous Victoria and Albert Museum. Over his lifetime Shyam has collected different styles of work and he sells within a wide price range. He has an artist’s eye for a good painting, and will happily share his knowledge with you and tell you about the history of each picture, the artist who painted it and it’s symbolism – if you show that you are interested.

    Udaipur has several other shops within a few hundred meters selling miniatures. Some show you how the colours and gold are ground up and applied. There are artists’ cooperatives selling directly to the public. In other shops you can, at certain times of day, sit and watch artists painting with tiny squirrel-hair brushes and brushes made from camels’ eyelashes. Go see them all, and then return to Ganesham Art & Craft with a better appreciation of the exceptional talents on display.

    Directions:
    Ganesham Art & Craft is near the Chandpole Bridge over lake Pichola.
    Looking across from the Hide-In Udaipur hotel, you will see Shyam’s shop over the road to the right beneath Jethi Home stay. Search Jethi Home stay on Google Maps

    Vintage Car Museum is located near to the City Palace. The museum is having around 20 classic and vintage car collections including Rolls-Royce, Cadillacs, MG, Ford etc. All the antique vehicles are well maintained, certainly a place to visit especially for car lovers. However, high entry fee may deter people to visit the museum.

    Locky is really talented. I got miniature painting done on my nails and I couldn’t have been happier! I got this done for ₹350.

    We also did a miniature painting workshop which was relaxing and fun. This costed me ₹800.

    We had 2 great experiences here!

    this is quite interesting. The price may have felt like a bit much in comparison with the price of the whole palace tour. There were far fewer visitors here then at the palace, we pretty much had the place to ourselves. There were some interesting items to view.

    This store is a hidden gem in Udaipur! It is an antique shop with high quality art pieces, sculptures and paintings. Everything is carefully curated by the owner who has excellent taste and a good eye for collector-level art pieces. I would highly recommend you stop here to see the collection, you will not need to go anywhere else in Udaipur for true quality artwork.
