Lake Pichola was constructed in 1362 and named after its nearby Picholi village. This lake was created by building dams for meeting the drinking water and irrigation needs of the city. Pichola has four islands in it: Jag Niwas (that houses Lake Palace), Jag Mandir, Mohan Mandir (place from where king would watch Gangaur festival) and Arsi Vilas (small island that was an ammunition depot and also has a small palace).
The oldest lake of Udaipur gives an extremely picturesque view and is a favoured spot for evening boat rides and photography amongst visitors.
