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.

Take the one hour tour around sunset to explore the magic of this place.The quality of light in the evening is stunning and the lake relatively clean compared with some others.The restaurants by the Royal Palace will also take reservations for this time of night.

Lake Pichola was one of the biggest highlights of my two weeks trip to India. I've enjoyed Udaipur more then any other place visited - Agra, Jaipur, Mumbai, Delhi or GOA.

Pichola lake was really a superb place to visit in udaipur. One can breath fresh air standing in front of the lake. Boating facility was nice. Water of the lake was blue colored. Superb view of surroundings. Nearby street food thelas are good for anyone's hunger.
