Artist's Description

This is a window to one of the rooms of Jag Mandir Palace, in Udaipur, India, on Lake Pichola.

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 cappuccino 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!

More on this fascinating history of the Mughal era and Mewari architecture can be read here
