Jagdish temple was built by Maharana Jagat Singh in 1651. This temple is devoted to Lord Vishnu. To reach the temple you have to climb 32 steep marble steps. In front of the temple there is a huge brass statue of Garuda, the vahan of Lord Vishnu.

The architecture of the temple is beautiful. Most engrossing is the carvings on the stone.

The temple is located at a walking distance from the city palace so you can visit the temple on way to the palace.
