The temple of Juggernauth, Oodeypore
Artist: Simpson, William (1823-1899)
This chromolithograph is taken from plate 28 of William Simpson's 'India: Ancient and Modern'. Jagannatha ('Lord of the World') is one of the titles of the great god Vishnu. Here we see a fine view of the temple dedicated to him in Udaipur. Also called the Jagdish temple, it was built by Maharana Jagat Singh in 1651. Set around Lake Pichola, Udaipur was the picturesque seat of the Sisodia clan of Rajputs, rulers of Mewar.
