Jagdish Temple

#3 of 12 things to do in Udaipur

Completed in the year 1651, The magnificent Jagdish temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Being just outside the royal palace signifies that its rituals were started by the royals. With time, it turned out to be the most significant temple in the entire city, also known as Laxmi Narayan Temple. It also is an architectural marvel among the other gems of Udaipur. It has carvings on its walls, which depict a lot of stories. This epitome of architecture has the idol of Lord Vishnu carved out of a single black stone, thus providing a striking contrast from the rest of the temple, which is pristine white in colour!

It was built by Maharaja Jagat Singh, whose mentions are on a stone-slab placed next to the entrance gate. A symbol of royalty, power and wealth, two stone elephants are placed at the entrance. The temple attaches a double-storey Mandapa (hall) to a double-storey saandhara (with a covered ambulatory) sanctum.

The place is great for tourists, especially those who are out to seek some enlightenment! The kind of serenity atmosphere holds herein is quite unmatched. 

Timings: 4:15 AM - 1:00 PM, 5:15 PM - 8:00 PM

There is no entry fee.
