Home to several palaces and islands, Udaipur’s Lake Pichola offers visitors an enticing blend of history, architecture and natural beauty. The freshwater lake may be artificial (created in the 14th century to meet the city’s drinking water and irrigation needs) but don’t let that fool you into thinking that this watery wonder is any less beautiful. Its eastern bank is home to the exquisite Udaipur City Palace, a must-see example of Rajasthani architecture, and its waters house Jag Niwas Island (home to the incredible 18th-century palace-turned-hotel). Spend your time here swimming, enjoying leisurely boat rides,
or simply strolling around the edge of the lake and soaking in the views. Whether you’re a history buff, an aesthete, or just someone in search of serenity, Lake Pichola offers everything you could wish for. A true gem in the heart of Udaipur, this is a destination that promises a stunning escape from the hustle and bustle of Indian city life.
