Jagdish Temple situated just outside the royal palace. The three-storey temple dates back to 1651 and is an example of architecture inspired by Hindu iconography.  The most unique feature of the City Palace of Udaipur is the fact that it was built over a period of 400 years. The architecture is thus an amalgamation of the contributions made by numerous rulers over the years. Situated on the eastern banks of Lake Pichola, the palace is majestic, the largest of its kind in Rajasthan. From the hilltop palace, one can get a scenic view of the lake along with the rest of the city.
