Bada Mahal, Udaipur Overview

Dating back to 17th century, Bada Mahal is an incredible structural marvel. Constructed in Rajput-Mughal architectural style, the Mahal is considered as the Men''s section of the City Palace. Every city of Rajasthan is well known for the grandeur of its monuments. Nowhere else in India will you get forts, palaces and castles so lavish and exquisite, so much so that it is a wonder for people around the world. A culmination and celebration of structural grandness and architectural marvel, Bada Mahal is yet another historical site that graces the City of Lakes in Rajasthan.

If you translate the name to English, it stands for ‘Big Palace’. Because of the well-curated, well-manicured garden that surrounds the building, it is also called the Garden Palace. Dating back to the 17th century, Bada Mahal was supposedly the men’s section of the city palace, where they engaged in casual conversations and revels. The Mahal stands atop a 90-feet high natural hillock, looking over the city of Udaipur. The towering pillars, extensive courtyards and regal balconies all reflect the prevalent architectural style contemporary to that era - a combination of Rajput and Mughal influences. Painted mirrors and intricate carvings on the walls grace the insides of Bada Mahal, while the outdoors boast lush green lawns, beautiful fountains and a lovely garden.

Bada Mahal would be an interesting addition to your list of sightseeing locations in Udaipur, and also serve as a great location for your social media snaps.
