Jagmandir

ranthamboreThe other island palace, Jagmandir, was commenced by Maharana Karan Singh, but takes its name from Maharana Jagat Singh (1628-52) who made a number of additions to it. 
It is said that the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, derived some of his inspiration for the Taj Mahal from this palace after staying here in 1623-24 while leading a revolt against his father, Jehangir. 
Flanked by a row of enormous stone elephant, the island has an impresive chhatri carved from grey-blue stone. The view across the lake, to the city and its glorious golden palace, is a scene of rare beauty.

City Palace Museum

Actually a conglomeration of buildings added by various Maharanas, it still manages to retain a surprising uniformity of design. The building was started by Maharana Udai Singh II, the city's founder. The palace is surmounted by balconies, tower and cupolas and there are fine view over the lake and the city from the upper terraces.
