Sunset over lake Pichola

A major highlight of a visit to Udaipur is the boat ride around the lake visiting Jag Niwas and Jag Mandir. Unfortunately we were not able to stop and visit the Lake Palace Hotel (Jag Niwas) but we were able to visit Jag Mandir and see the sunset over this magical building built in 1615 by Karan Singh. It is reported that Shah Jahan based the Taj Mahal on parts of this building.. My fears about the boats were unfounded it was most peaceful and extremely calm. Tonight we have a farewell dinner in the Shiv Niwas Palace, before heading off tomorrow afternoon for the airport and a flight to Delhi. June is  going shopping in the morning....... why am I not surprised? My handmade jacket should be ready by 9 PM tonight. Hope it fits!!!
