Pichola Lake

The expansive lake of Pichola stands as one of the most beautiful and picturesque lakes of Rajasthan. The lake is located in the city which is better known as the city of lakes. The lake stands in the heart of the city and is categorized as one of the oldest and largest lakes in Udaipur.


The origin of the lake dates back to 1362 during the reign of Maharana Lakha, a gypsy “Banjara” tribesman who used to transport grain. This expansive lake encircles the isles of the Lake Palace Hotel, more commonly known as the Jag Niwas and also the Jag Mandir. This massive lake is stretched to about 3 miles in length and 2 miles in width. The lake is 30 feet deep.


The enchanting beauty of the lake captivates the charm of the pristine lake with a perfect landscape of lofty lush green hills and after discovering the city of Udaipur, Maharana Udai Singh extended the lake. He also built a dam, which was created out of stones and stands on the shore of the lake, forming a part of the region of Badipol.


Enveloped with the majestic lakes, temples, bathing ghats and magnificent palaces, the lake gives a glimpse of a reel world. Then, the popular hill in the region, which is known as Machhala Magra renders a breath taking view of Eklinggarh Fort along with the quaint city of Udaipur. The other places to see in the area are Mohan Mandir, City Palace, Arsi Vilas, Natni-ka-Chabutra, which attracts lots of tourist.
