Owner description: 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.

“Dinner only”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We ate here 2 nights and it was very good. The roof terrace had wonderful views across the Lake to the Palace and other hotels and buildings. Very atmospheric as it was dark. The staff were very attentive and the price was very good. Worth a visit.

“Beautiful lake, boat ride a must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

The lake is beautiful especially post monsoons and just before the winter season. The boat experience is good wherein you will be taken in a big boat along with other tourists and dropped at the Lake Palace at the center of the lake. There they have a lot of programs lined up during the evening. You can return the same evening. Prices of all food and beverage items are really very very steep. So be prepared and go there.

“Awesome View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Lake Pichola is the most picturesque lake of Udaipur. The lake is about 2.5 miles long and 1.5 mile broad, which gets its water from a big stream from the western mountains. I was so pleased to see a such a beautiful lake.. This lake is encircled by huge white palaces, dark and bare hills, rows of bathing ghats crowded by people and marble temples with their flags high in the air. In the middle of the lake are the two island palaces -Jag Niwas and Jag Mandir that display a breathtaking magnificence.
