Lala Mishthan Bhandar was started by ‘Lala Narayan Ji’ somewhere 150 years ago. Apparently, the shop has been named after him. Located near the Ghanta Ghar police station, this shop is ever crowded by people who come here to relish the authentic taste of seasonal desserts and sweets and undoubtedly the sweets are mouthwatering.

We had a very interesting conversation with Mr. Hemendra Sahu who told us about the shop. He said that Lala Ji was his grandfather. He lived for an astonishing 103 years. It is getting operated from several years ago and quite evidently it has seen the golden era of kings and queens in Udaipur. Today, this sweet shop is witnessing its fourth generation.

This Rot is prepared every Tuesday as an offering to Lord Hanuman. People from all around the city come and buy it to offer at Lord Hanuman’s temple situated at different places in the town.

Sunset Point in Udaipur

The sunset point is the paramount place to see the most beautiful face of Udaipur. This garden is famous for its excellent view to the dusk and the weakly musical fountain show. This show is held every Monday after the twilight. Its located at the southeastern part of Pichola lake by the side of Dudh Talai and ahead of M.L. Verma park. Before the garden there is a ropeway which lands us to Karnimata temple giving an tremendous outlook of the city. This is one of the most frequently visited gardens of Udaipur. It’s a pleasure to our eyes when we perceive the diffused light from the sky during the early evening when the sun is below the horizon and its light is refracted by the earth’s atmosphere. We ublogers advice every visitor to go there and enjoy the intense red and orange hues of the sky at sunset with the fountain dancing on music.
