Udaipur- the abode treasuring the magnificence and grandeur of Rajasthan’s regality, is known all the world over for its spectacular and mind boggling palaces. But that is not the only attraction that you should look out for when you visit this land of royalty. Situated at the heart of this magnificent city is the Jagdish temple. A popular tourist destination, the temple was once known as Jagannath Rai, but later named Jagdish Ji. It finds its place in the list of the most vivacious and ancient monuments of Udaipur as well as Rajasthan.
The use of a double storied hall along with a double storied Sandhara sanctum adds unique features to its architecture. Lanes from the city wall converge radially into the temple. The temple presents a paradigm of Maru-Gurjara Architecture.
The essence that the temple treasures is too ethereal to be enjoyed vicariously. Only a visit to this sanctum of solace can unveil the true essence encapsulated within.
