Pichola Lake

Pichola Lake

Pichola Lake, Pichola Lake tours, Visit Pichola Lake of Rajasthan, Travel to Pichola Lake, Beaches and Lakes of RajasthanLocation : Udaipur, Rajasthan
Developed By : Maharaja Udai Singh
Attraction : Island Palaces

Maharaja Udai Singh did not underestimate the panoramic beauty of Lake Pichola surrounded by beautiful hills when he chose to widen it. Later Maharaja Jagjit Singh conceptualized the two beautiful island palaces in the middle of the lake, now, known as Jag Niwas (the much-renowned Lake Palace) and Jag Mandir that adds to the shimmering beauty of the lake.

Lake Pichola has a masonry dam known as the Badipol and is 4 km long and 3 km wide. However, it is not very deep and during severe droughts, one can even walk up to the island palaces from the shore.

The City Palace adorns the east bank of the lake while it is surrounded by a plethora of marble temples, mansions and palaces and a number of bathing ghats. The boat ride in the blue waters of the lake, especially, in the backdrop of setting sun is absolutely not worth missing.

The sunset over this lake is absolutely blissful. Pichola is encircled on all sides by numerous palaces, marble temples, family mansions, dark hills and rows of bathing ghats, which is thronged by bathers at dawn.

The lake at places narrows down and both its banks almost touch each other. There are islands at regular intervals on the lake, which have either palaces or pavilions on them. The most beautiful and eye-catching are the Jag Mandir and the Jag Niwas, the exotic islands out in the lake.
