Tourist Destinations of Rajasthan
Jagniwas, the Lake Place island, is about 1.5 hectares in size. The Palace was built by Maharana Jagat Singh II in 1754 and covers the whole island. Formerly the royal summer palace, today it is the ultimate in luxury hotels, with shady courtyards, lotus ponds and even a small mango tree shaded swimming pool. Yes this is the perfect place to fall in love, but casual visitors are not really encouraged. Nonguests can only come over for lunch or dinner - and then only if the hotel is not full, which it is often is. The Lake Palace, along with the Shiv Niwas Palace and Monsoon Palace in Udaipur, were used as sets in the James Bond Movie, Octopussy.
Behind Jagniwas is a much smaller island called Arsi Vilas, which has been used in recent times as a helipad.
