This is plate 13 from James Fergusson's book, 'Ancient Architecture in Hindoostan'. Set in a green valley and surrounded by lakes, Udaipur is regarded by many as the most picturesque city in India. Jaisamand Lake is to the south-east, on the city's outskirts. One of the biggest artificial lakes in the the world, it was built by Jai Singh in the late 17th century. White marble staircases lead down to the water and the lake is surrounded by the summer palaces of the queens of Udaipur, along with a huge bund (or embankment) and a Shiva temple.
