Welcome to the land of royal palaces and grandeur- Udaipur, where the history echoes through the walls of the Jag Mandir Palace.
As you enter the palace, eight majestic elephants carved out of pure white marble will stand tall, guarding the palace. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a different world altogether. The three-storied palace is made out of marble and yellow sandstone, which gives it an ethereal look.
But wait, there’s more! Did you know that Shah Jahan also lived in the palace? Yes, the same Shah Jahan who built the Taj Mahal. You can visit Gul Mahal, where he lived with his family. The palace is designed in the Islamic architecture style, and a mosque was also created here to serve his religious needs.
Don’t miss out on visiting Bara Patharon ka Mahal, Kunwar Pada ka Mahal, and the Zenana Mahal, which are other must-visit pavilions. And, if you’re a foodie, then you’re in for a real treat. Darikhana, the restaurant inside the palace, serves lip-smacking Rajasthani food that will make you want to come back for more.
And the best part? You can stroll through the palace gardens embellished with roses, jasmine flowers, palm trees, frangipani trees, and bougainvillea. It’s like walking through a paradise on earth.
So, what are you waiting for? Take a trip to Jag Mandir Palace and experience the best of Rajasthani architecture and benevolence. Oh, and don’t forget to say hi to the white marble elephant when you get there!
