Sprawling on for about 4 km, Pichola Lake is the crowning glory of City of Lakes – Udaipur. This artificial lake was made in the 14th century to cater to the shortage of water in the region. The crystal waters of the lake with the backdrop of the Aravali hills was what impressed the erstwhile Maharanas of Rajasthan and leaves spectators awestruck even today. The most amazing aspects of this lake are the four islands that speck its surface: Jag Mandir Island, Jag Niwas Island, Arsi Vilas Island and Mohan Mandir Island.
James Bond lovers should surely make it a point to visit the lake, as the movie Octopussy (1983) was shot here. When you are enjoying a boat ride in the calm waters of the lake, ask your guide to narrate the tale of Natini’s curse to get a taste of local legends and fables.
