This was the first island palace of Lake Pichola. Built in 1622 AD by Maharana Karan, it was intended to be a pleasure palace for regal parties and functions. The legend says that JagMandir was the inspiration behind the world famous Taj Mahal. The island has some elegant stone carvings and a big row of elephants, a chhatri made of grey blue stone and ample courtyards, tress and flowes. Now it is used as hotel, and as stop in the Pichola lake boat ride tour. Another option for going to the island is with aoat that starts from Bansi Ghat jetty.

Address: Pichola lake
