Artist's Description

This was taken in Udaipur, India, on Lake Pichola on Jag Mandir Island and is one of eight marble elephants built as lifesize ‘guardians’ of the extrance to the palace.

Jag Mandir Palace was built by Maharana Karan Singh to serve as a hiding place for Prince Khurram (popularly known as Shah Jahan).

Between the years of 1620-28, Maharana Karan Singh ruled the region and during this period Prince Khurram revolted against his father – hence the need for a hiding place!

I can highly recommend the cappucino served at Darikhana Restaurant.. awesome!

If you are here at sunset, you will observe the palace staff covering the eight elephants, just as one would cover any other elephant at night, with blankets!
