|Start Slide Show|
Jag Mandir is a palace located on the southern island of Lake Pichola. Shah Jahan took refuge here while revolting against his father, Maharana Karan Singh. The three-storied Palace is constructed of yellow sandstone and marble. There are 8 life size marble elephants greeting visitors. The palace was built in early 17th century. It was completed by Maharana Jagat Singh during his reign (1628-1652). The present form of the Palace is the result of additions made by Maharana Jagat Singh. Maharana Swaroop Singh sheltered a number of European families here during the revolt of 1857. Currently there is a restaurant there.
