The Lake Palace is situated on the Jag Niwas Island (in Lake Pichola of Udaipur), which offers an innate ground for the Palace. This isle was originated by Maharana Jagat Singh in the year 1754 and as such it was christened after him.
The palace was also constructed by him and functioned as a seasonal palace for the large regal household. It embraces approximately the whole extent of the huge stony isle and appears to come out from the mid of the lake. The breathtaking loveliness of the palace is unrivaled with its clear mirror image in the completely clean and tidy lake making for a fine popular sight.
