The Lake Palace

Location


To get the Lake Palace you could fly directly to Udaipur from Mumbai or New Delhi. Udaipur can also be accessed by train or road from New Delhi. It is 26 kms from Airport, 3 kms from Railway Station and 3 kms from the Bus Stand of Udaipur.

The Lake Palace is one of the most beautiful palaces in the world, arising out of the Turquoise Waters of the Pichola like an elegant fantasy in white marble. The Lake palace was built in the 17th century on a natural foundation of 4 acers of rock. It was initially called Jaginwas after its founder Maharana Jagjit Singh.

The Maharana, ruler of Jaipur from 1628 to 1654, was very friendly with Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and encouraged his craftsmen to copy some of the glories of his incomparable buildings at Agra. The successive rulers used this cool haven as their summer resort, holding their regal durbars in its courtyards.
