Lake Pichola, situated in Udaipur city in the Indian state of Rajasthan, is an artificial fresh water lake, created in the year 1362 AD, named after the nearby Picholi village. It is one of the several contiguous lakes, and developed over the last few centuries in and around the famous Udaipur city. The lakes around Udaipur were primarily created by building dams to meet the drinking water and irrigation needs of the city and its neighborhood. Two islands, Jag Niwas and Jag Mandir are located within Pichola Lake, and have been developed with several palaces to provide views of the lake.
There are four islands on the lake:
Went during the sunset and it looked beautiful. There are a few benches to sit and enjoy the scenic view.
Took a ferry on this lake from the Trident to the Leela. The Lake was full so it added to the beauty. There is a ferry ride for around 45 – 60 minutes that takes you around the key sights on the lake. I missed it, but believe it’s worth to soak in the sights.
We ended up taking a sunset boat ride on the lake and had a great time. It was wonderful watching the locals swimming in the clean water, a rarity in India. A highlight of the trip was watching a swarm of bats fishing in the lake.
Lake Pichola is one of the lakes in Udaipur- ‘The city of lakes’. On the banks of Pichola famous Jagdish Temple and City Palace are there. In middle of the lake, famous, prestigious, and Luxurious Hotel Taj Lake Palace is situated, where you have to take a boat to go. Boating is permitted in this lake but the cost is a bit high.
