Finding inner peace

In Udaipur, meditation and mindfulness are not just practices, but a way of life. You'll find yourself surrounded by other individuals - all seeking the same peaceful existence. Whether you choose to meditate in a temple, or by the lake, each experience will leave you feeling refreshed and connected to your truest self.

We’ve collated a list of serene places in Udaipur that will help you escape from the fast-paced city life and rediscover spirituality: 

Bask in the serene calmness of the lakes:

If you're looking for a meditative experience, the lakes of Udaipur are the right place for you. As soon as you arrive in the ‘City of Lakes’, and view famous waterbodies like Lake Pichola, you'll feel a sense of calm wash over you. The clear blue waters surrounded by lush green hills create a serene and peaceful atmosphere. It's the perfect setting for a relaxing meditation session.

Lake Pichola 
It is truly a joy to meditate by Lake Pichola, a serene and picturesque lake located in Udaipur, Rajasthan. 

The gentle sound of the water lapping against the shore and the soft chirping of birds create a soothing rhythm for you to calm your mind. The cool breeze from the lake caresses your face, adding to the peaceful ambiance. Soon, you will find yourself drifting away from the noise and stress of daily life and immerse yourself in the current moment, feeling fully at peace with yourself.

Fateh Sagar Lake 
The Fateh Sagar Lake in Udaipur is a magical spot to look within and rediscover tranquillity. With each deep breath, your mind will become lighter and more focused, while your stress will fade away into the calming ethos.

As you sit there, surrounded by the beauty of nature, you will feel a deep sense of gratitude and appreciation for this moment and place. It's a truly humbling experience that will make you feel recharged and rejuvenated.  

Connect with the divine wisdom of ancient temples:

What makes the temples truly perfect for meditation is the energy that flows through them. You can feel a sense of peace and stillness as you sit quietly and meditate – deeply aware of each breath. And if you're lucky, you might even get to experience chanting or devotional singing while you're there. The sound of these bhajans and kirtans can be incredibly uplifting, adding to the overall spiritual experience.

Shri Jagdish Temple 
Shri Jagdish Temple is one of the most serene and beautiful places in all of Udaipur. When you sit down to meditate, you will feel a sense of calm while gazing at the beautiful architecture of the temple. 

The sound of the ringing bells and the aroma of incense sticks fill the air, adding to the peaceful ambiance. The atmosphere is so conducive to meditation that you might find yourself sinking into a deeper state of consciousness effortlessly.

Mahakaleshwar Temple 
As you step inside the Mahakaleshwar Temple, you will feel a sense of calm wash over you. The sound of the bustling city instantly fades away as you make your way into the temple, where the flickering flames of the sacred lamps cast dancing shadows on the walls.

The energy of the temples flows through you, giving you a sense of purpose and contentment. You will feel your mind clearing, your body relaxing, and your soul expanding when you’re here at the temple.
