Did You Know? Taj Lake Palace
July 29, 2013By: Five Star Alliance

 

Taj Lake Palace

 

Taj Lake Palace wasn't always a luxury hotel. Legend has it that young prince  Maharana Jagat Singh II indulged in moonlight picnics with the ladies of the Zenana on the lake island palace of Jag Mandir. Then his dad found out.  With that option closed to him, the prince built his own pleasure palace on a different island in Lake Pichola. Begun in 1743 and inaugurated in 1746, the new palace was named Jag Niwas after his highness Maharana Jagat Singh II, 62nd successor to the royal dynasty of Mewar. Jag Niwas, now Taj Lake Palace, is one of four islands in Lake Pichola.
