Shri Jagdish Temple, located near the City Palace of Udaipur, Rajasthan, is a striking example of Hindu religious architecture comprised of beautifully carved pillars, decorated ceilings, painted walls and lush halls. With a massive gateway, three stories of hand carved stone, and a steeple nearly 79 feet high, Jagdish Temple is the largest temple in Udaipur, India. It was built in 1651 by
Maharana Jagat Singh just two years before the end of his reign and dedicated to the Hindu god Lord Vishnu. An estimated RS 1.5 million ($33, 400) was spent to construct the building.
Visitors to the temple are greeted at the roadside by an imposing bank of steps. Above and slightly out of sight is the main hall, which stands on 50 pillars beautifully decorated with carved figures in stone
