Photograph from the Curzon Collection: 'Vist of His Excellency the Viceroy. Kotah, November, 1902' of the Jag Mandir on the Kishor Sagar at Kota, Rajasthan, taken by P.A. Herzog and P. Higgins in 1902. The Kishor Sagar is an artificial lake constructed in 1346. The palace dates from 1740 and contains pavilions and gardens within its walls. Palaces and pleasure pavilions built on artificial lakes are a notable feature of royal architecture in Rajasthan and were designed to give the appearance of floating like islands on the lake. The lakes provide a protected and picturesque setting and the palaces are cooled by the winds passing over the water.
