Brief History
Lake Palace was built by Maharana Jagat Singh II, in the year 1754. The Maharana during those days had very cordial relations with the Mughal kings. The Maharana's predecessors, seeking an opportunity, invited the local craftsmen who were responsible for making some great buildings for the Mughals. There was not any other better place other than this small island, on which the palace stands today. The palace, once built, served as the summer resort for Maharana's successors. This marvellous palace in the twentieth century evolved into a luxury resort hotel. Now in contract with Indian hotels, the palace is managed by the Taj Group of Hotels.

Lake Palace - Overview
Udaipur is bounded in the west by Lake Pichola and Fateh Sagar. Lake Pichola is spread more towards the south west of the city. In the middle of this lake is a small island called Jagniwas Island. The Jagniwas Island, as it exists at present, is what people know as the Lake Palace. The palace represents a luxury resort in the middle of the lake at Udaipur, accessible by boat or a chopper. This private residence of the royal family of Mewar is one of the world's widely acclaimed luxury hotels. The floating palace, overlooking the distant city, in the deep blue waters of the lake is one site tourists do not easily forget.

What's So Special
The unique location is the key factor of the beautiful lake palace. Floating in the clear water, cut off from the rest of the city and approached by a boat makes it the most romantic place around. Such is the beauty of the place that it got featured in one of the James Bond movies. With ripples in the water and the magnificent reflection of the palace one has very little chances of resisting the charm.
