Photograph from the 'Curzon Collection: Album of views of Udaipur and Chittaurgarh', of the Jagmandir at Udaipur taken by an unknown photographer at the beginning of the 20th century. Udaipur is situated on the Lake Pichola, artificially created by the building of a dam wall between two hills. There are many island pavilions on the lake, the best preserved is the complex on Jag Mandir, built of sanstone inlaid with marble in 1551. The domed pavilion or Gul Mahal was built in a Mughal style architecture around 1621. Most of the other buildings are from the 18th Century. This is a distant eastern view looking over the lake.
