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.
