Udaipur Small Group Art Walk with Clay Pot Making
Your Udaipur walking tour begins at Gadiya Devra temple and takes you to the majestic steps of Gangaur Ghat on the banks of Lake Pichola, the heart of the city. Check out the beautifully restored royal architecture, then have a snack stop at a 150-year-old heritage art house for tea and samosas. The house is intricately decorated with fresco paintings and traditional artwork - a mini private gallery for you to explore! Refreshed, you'll visit the Sai Mandir and Jagdish temples, where countless pilgrims visit every day. We'll then proceed to the Chowk area, and en route see Maje-ki-Baoli, a century-old unique step well. Then, we head to the utensil-making colony of Kasara Ki Oi, and further on to Bada Bazaar. From here, you'll weave along a trail of local trades and crafts. We'll walk through the Sunarwada jewelry market and Mochiwada shoe market, where you can indulge your inner shopaholic with pairs of traditionally embroidered Rajasthani jutti (decorated shoes). As you walk through the markets, you'll have time to chat with locals and learn more about their ancient trades. We'll then proceed to a local potter's house, where you'll witness the traditional techniques for making clay pots and water pitchers. Want to get your hands dirty? Climb behind the potter's wheel and put your skills to the test by making one or two pots. Your Udaipur tour will then lead you to Delhi Gate, where you'll bid farewell and have the rest of the afternoon free to explore the city on your own.
