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.

People used to throw there waste in the lake which is disappointing. Government should work on improving it as it is a tourist attraction

Lots and lots of cafes and restaurants by the lake. The boat rides looked interesting but we gave it a miss. Brilliant sunset point though.

It is a beautiful lake with an island in the middle. On the island there is a restaurant but that is very expensive. On the lake is a beautiful hotel that can only be reached by boat

Surrounded by interesting buildings, some new pretending to be old, some very old and in need of attention and some just plainly stunning, the lake offers the best way to see Udaipur. A boat trip is a must. Sunset is a perfect time. Sit back and enjoy

Lake Pichola is one of the best location to visit in Udaipur. Jagmandir Palace, Summer Palace, Udai vilas palace can be seen. Visitors should do boating.

Nice lake, with jagmandir Island in between and Taj hotel. Its periphery covers city palace and some good restaurants. Boat ride is costly 650 per person. Recommended for visit
