The Gangaur Experience : Taj Lake Palace (Udaipur) is privileged to offer to you an experience on the historic Gangaur – the 150-year old boat used by the Maharanas for floating processions, celebrating festivals and royal ceremonies. A group of maximum 14 guests can enjoy dinner on the boat, while up to 30 guests can be served cocktails on board.
The heritage ceremonial imperial barge of the house of Mewar glides across the mystical Lake Pichola illuminated with candlelight and steered by oarsmen dressed in resplendent costumes. Sip your favorite cocktail & enjoy sumptuous delicacies from a live grill under a canopy of stars. The boat glides you gently along the lake as the lights of the palace cast shimmering reflections on the water and lend an aura of wondrous magic. Live instrumental music provides a fitting accompaniment to this unique and unparalleled experience. Dressed for the occasion, the barge awaits your engaging presence. If the boat looks familiar, perhaps you’ve seen it in the James Bond classic "Octopussy," which was filmed on location at the hotel in 1983.
