The Lake Palace or Jagat Niwas is a white marble summer residence of the princess of Mewar, built in 1746 by Jagat Singh. Set on an island, the whole palace appears to float on the blue waters of Lake Pichola. The airy stucco complex with dainty balconies, terrace gardens, fountains and arched windows, reflects the brightness of the sun, sky and lake. The interiors are lavishly decorated with paintings, stained glass and crystals.
