Description: Pichola Lake is one of the most beautiful and picturesque lakes of...
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 most famous lake of Udaipir. Sit with your loved one, Family and enjoy the sun set at Pichola. I request everyone not to throw plastic bags and other garbage in the lake. It spoils the beauty.

Must take a boat and get good seat to take your photos. Some riders tends to walk up and down and block view while you are taking photos.

Really lovely lake from any angle in the city and the views while on a boat are nice too. We took a boat after visiting the palace and it was quite pretty and relaxing although for us it was over pretty quickly. We stopped at the island for about 20minutes and decided to leave because we weren't interested in lunch... More

We did a boat ride and the view of the palaces, hotels and the magnificent Taj Palace in the centre made interesting view and a lovely sight to behold. Boat ride costs Rs 200 per person. Keep this program towards the evening so that you can relax

Pichola is one of the finest and most well maintained lakes in India. It has its own heritage history. Take a boat ride on the lake and get connected to the history of Udaipur. Ask the locals and they will tell you the history behind the island buildings such as Jag mandir, Arsi Vilas, Mohan Mandir, Natini ka chabutra, Lake... More
