Lake Pichola Udaipur
A few days ago I visited this lake which is no doubt a really beautiful and awesome place. The wind was blowing and giving me pleasure. I think not everyone can feel it, but every time I go to such places, I definitely feel it. After a few footsteps, I saw a binocular to see the palace in the lake, which is popular as Jagmandir and Jagniwas Mahal Palace.

The reflections of the palace in the lake is pleasant. This palace is now a royal hotel which is so expensive for budget travelers. The ups and downs of landscapes make it a magnificent view. Aravali mountain range is so bright in this city. Some patterns look like an illusion, but its real by the way.
The crowd all around the lake is enchanting and makes the surroundings inspiring. It’s a perfect place to relax with friends or family. No doubt it is also a good place for solo travelers like me who loves to travel alone.
Boating is also available which can be an amazing experience. For having such an experience you have to take tickets and make sure about safety. As I was alone, I first saw a lake which was a small one, known as “Dudhtalai”(In English- A lake of Milk). This is also a nice lake. I also tried “pani-puri” at a chaupati near this lake, then moved to see Lake Pichola.
I spent some time sitting and relaxing on the bays of this lake. The wind was blowing and the sound of the crowd all around was encouraging me. I saw a palace between the lake, which is no doubt amazing. Then, after all, I bought an ice cream and came back to the station to pick my train.
History of Lake Pichola
This lake was built in the 13th century by a banjara (Man belongs to a tribe), during the reign of Maharana Lakha. Later on, Maharana Udai Singh expanded this lake and built a dam on this lake. Palace and temples were built at this lake which is Jagmandir palace and jagniwas mahal. A Mughal emperor, Shah jahan visited this lake and was impressed by this lake and he got an inspiration to make “Taj Mahal” by views of reflection of the palace in this lake.
