Pichola Lake is one of the most beautiful and picturesque lakes of Rajasthan, India. Located in the heart of the city, Pichola Lake is the oldest and one of the largest lakes of Udaipur. Pichola Lake is enveloped by lofty Palaces, temples, bathing ghats and elevated hills on all its sides. In the southern part of this lake, there is a hill that is known as Machhala Magra and one can see glimpse of Eklinggarh Fort from here. The City Palace of Udaipur broadens along the eastern banks of this lake. Built by Jagat Singh, Mohan Mandir is situated in the north-east corner of Lake Pichola. Lake Pichola comprises several islands that accompany the calm waters of the lake. The world-renowned Lake Palace is perfectly located on the Jag Island of this tranquil lake. Even the Jag Mandir, another destination of tourists, is located on an island of this lake. Above all, a trip to Pichola Lake would be incomplete with a boat ride. The pristine blue waters of the lake leave a soothing impact on the spectator. At the time sun-set, a boat ride in this lake is sufficient to enthrall anyone.

The best lake in the city of lakes. So relaxing to be on the banks to see the world famous lake palace in the midst. Then took a thrilling boat ride to Jag Mandir island. Must visit.

One should not miss Pichola Lake when in Udaipur. The best view of the lake can be from any of the roofs of hotels/restaurants. The evening view is breathtaking as almost all the buildings are illuminated and shine brightly.

This is another attraction quite similar to Fatehsagar. You will get boat riding here which is not very costly. It is worth doing. There is dudh talai and musical fountain park just next to it.

It a huge lake situated next the City Palace and gives a panoramic view. A lovely photo shoot spot, adjacent to the Palace. Alongwith the Palace you can easily spend 2-3 hours here.
