One of the most spectacular lakes in Rajasthan is Lake Pichola, which dates back to the 14th century. It boasts four picturesque islands, but the presence of ancient temples and royal palaces are what give it that awe-inspiring dash of architectural magnificence and splendour. The lake’s most notable attractions include Lake Palace, Jag Mandir, Mohan Mandir and the City Palace. At sunset, a boat ride on the lake is a must as that is when the lake is at its prettiest. The pristine waters and glistening golden hues of the setting sun create a whimsical palette of colours while the lush green hills in the backdrop add to the charm.
