An interesting and important site to see while in Udaipur is the Jagdish Temple, a large Hindu temple situated near the Royal Palace. It was completed in 1651 by Maharana Jagat Singh and has been in continuous use for worship since.
A staircase with 32 steps leads to the main shrine. Beneath the shrine are three stories of hand-carved stone, rich in baroque Hindu symbols. The steeple is 79 feet tall and rests on 50 pillars, making the building 125 feet high -- the tallest temple in the city.
The temple is guarded by two massive built stone elephant statues and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, the temple housing a four-armed image of him.
The artistry of the carvings on the temple is truly impressive, as you can see from these images....
Several women were selling flowers outside the temple. I thought their saris and blossoms made for an interesting color combination.
