Ghats (steps) that lead down to the river, are a common sight in many Indian towns; Udaipur is known for its bathing ghats. Join a local storyteller as he leads you on a winding maze through the bazaars and bathing ghats of Udaipur.
You’ll begin at the Jagdish Temple, built in 1651 – one of the city’s prime tourist spots. You will follow a path that takes you through Gangaur Ghat in the heart of the city, to the Ghantaghar (Clock Tower). You will be led through an array of local markets, including stops at several shops so you can pick up the ubiquitous fabrics and silver jewellery. We will then move on to the Mochiwada or Shoe Market, Utensils Market, Sabzi Mandi (vegetable market), Kumbharwada (Potters’ Colony), Wariyon ki Ghati (Leaf workers’ Ghat), Kasara ki Ol (Metalworkers’ bazaar) and circle back to Jagdish Temple to end the walk.
