Fodor's Expert Review Sajjan Garh

Udaipur Castle/Palace

High in the Aravali Hills just outside Udaipur, this fort–palace glows golden orange in the night sky, thanks to the lights that illuminate it. Once the maharana's Monsoon Palace, it's now rather dilapidated, and serves as a radio station for the Indian Army. The panoramic view is spectacular from the fort's lofty tower, and locals claim you can see distant Chittaurgarh on a clear day. The winding road to the top of Sajjan Garh, surrounded by green forests, is best covered by car (you can take an auto-rickshaw, but the ride will be long and bumpy). On foot, it's a 45 minute uphill walk. A fee is required for vehicles at the gate leading up the hill.
