Panna Boat Museum

The Panna Boat Museum showcases the sacrifice of Panna Dhai for Mewar, here you can learn a lot about Panna Dhai as well as hangout on the well-constructed ship structured museum and enjoy the weather near the scenic lake.
Neemach Mata Temple
Fateh Sagar is surely established a permanent place in each and every individual’s heart, therefore the Fateh Sagar road and Walkway is usually quite crowded during the monsoon season and especially weekends. But if you want to adore the alluring lake without any hustling and bustling you must climb up to the Neemach Mata Temple near the Fateh Sagar Lake and enjoy the detailed view in absolute calmness.
What better that cherishing the rains along with taking a ropeway ride to the top of a hill with Goddess Karni Mata showering her blessings. A ropeway ride can be availed from the Deendayal Upadhayay Park near Dudh Talai Lake. If you’re a fitness freak or wish to explore the valley on foot, you can take the stairs up to the hill from Manikyalal Verma Park near Dudh Talai Lake.
It is basically an Island Garden located amidst the mesmerizing Fateh Sagar Lake; this ovular shaped garden is spread across 4.5 acres of land which is equipped with several pyramid shaped fountains complimented with colorful lights. To access the island garden, one has to take a boat ride from the Fateh Sagar road opposite Moti Magri main gate. The boat rides are scheduled in short intervals of time from morning till the evening time.
Places to Visit During Monsoon Around Udaipur
A huge 67ft. high Dam located at a distance of 34kms from the main city is an enchanting location to be visited during monsoon season. In 1976 it was constructed by Hindustan Zinc Ltd. which now acts as the main water supply source for Zawar Mines.
My Udaipur City requests you to be cautious around the water and carry your own refreshments along with you to the place as there is no nearby eatery available there. Also we plead you not to litter and destroy the heavenly site.
Ubeshwarji and Nandeshwarji are two most hotspot picnic destinations for the locals of Udaipur, one can take blessings of Lord Ubeshwarji and Nandeshwarji and take a dip in the nearby calm water stream. For Ubeshwarji one has to take a right from the Rampura Circle, whereas to access Nandeshwar ji take the straight road from Rampura Circle. Both the locations are covered amidst the natural beauty with the divine presence of the serenity by the temples.
It is a well-known monsoon picnic spot, which is located around 23kms from the main city center of Udaipur. Do you remember the static scenery we were taught to draw in our primary schools? The scenery with several mountains on the top and a water stream gushing through the hilly region, with the village premise, this is an exact copy of the imaginary scenery we’ve been drawing since childhood.
Located at a distance of 64kms northwest from the Udaipur main city, the Kumbhalgarh fort is a world heritage site which contains the second longest wall of the world after ‘The Great Wall of China’. The huge fort is surrounded by 13 mountains and stands high at 1,914 meters from the sea level.
