At Monsoon Palace, visit the villain's residence from the 1983 James Bond movie, Octopussy. Explore the hilltop palatial residence which overlooks one of four lakes surrounding the city. Built in 1884 on marble pillars at an elevation of 944m (3,100 ft), the palace got its name because of the thick monsoon clouds which cover the hills. Initially, the palace was meant to be an astronomical center and a resort for the royal family, but King Maharana Sajjan Singh died prematurely and never finished the project. It was completed by his successor Maharana Fateh Singh, who loved watching monsoon clouds.

Monsoon Palace Reviews
It's a beautiful palace. Awesome view from its many terraces. Another attraction is its virtual reality recording with u on a screen. Very good photography opportunities. more »
There's nothing much in this palace to see. The ticket is overpriced too. This can be skipped for sure - believe me there's nothing to be missed here.. more »
Best place in udaipur to enjoy the sunset. Car entry fees is ₹200 and per person 30₹. If you love to climb the mountains then it is easy trek. And I will not recommend that if you are driving to this place then make sure you have good control on your vehicle.
Amazing city view and sunset view from this place. Warning: strong wind, girls wear dress which can handle wind properly, else rather than enjoying view you will be busy holding your dress all the time. Taxi drivers of the Fort are rude, if restore properly fort will look more stunning.
