Jag Mandir Palace

Jag Mandir is one of the two natural island palaces found in the Lake Pichola. Constructed by three Maharanas of the Sisodia Rajputs from Mewar kingdom, the “Lake Garden Palace” features the Gul Mahal, an elegant façade which spots four carved elephant, the Garden Courtyard, the Darikhana, the Bara Patharon ka Mahal, the Zenana Mahal and the Kunwar Pada ka Mahal. The Gul Mahal (the towering structure hid behind trees) served as a refuge to young Prince Khurram (Emperor Shahjahan) in 1623. Locals believe the palace inspired him to make the Taj Mahal, at Agra, India.
