|The temple of Jagannath Rai, now called Jagdishji, is a major monument of and should be seen carefully. Raised on a tall terrace and completed in 1651, it is a tribute alike to the tenacity
of its builders and the resilience of the art tradition in represents. It attaches a double storied Mandapa (hall) to a double storied, Saandhara (that having a covered ambulatory) sanctum.
The Mandapa has another storey tucked within its pyramidal Samavarna (bell roof) while the hollow clustered spire over the sanctum contains two more, non-functional, stories. Lanes taking off from many of the
gates of the Sheharpanah (city wall) converge on the Jagdish Temple and walking leisurely through them brings you face to face with the many layers of the cultural palimpsest that Udaipur is.
