Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur
A true jewel that floats in Lake Pichola, the magnificent Jag Niwas Palace was originally constructed in the 1740s AD by the Maharaja of Udaipur, Maharana Jagat Singh, as the summer retreat for the royal family.
In 1963, the descendant of the Maharana, Bhagwat Singh transformed it into a heritage hotel. Now known as the TAJ LAKE PALACE, the building shimmers in the middle of the lake like a white pearl due to the white marble of Rajnagar that was used to build it.
This Mewari-styled building which borrows heavily from the Mughal architectural tradition offers 65 rooms and suites. The James Bond movie put the hotel in the global spotlight when it served as the secret lair for the Bond Girl.
