It has served as a refuge for Moghul Emperor Shahjahan when he was a prince against the wrath of his father in a family dispute in the seventeenth century. The legend says that Jagmandir was the inspiration behind the world-famous Taj Mahal, which Shah Jahan built in the memory of his deceased wife, Mumtaj.

There is a canal linking the two lakes via Swaroop Sagar and Rang Sagar Lakes. Nehru Island on the lake is just as beautiful as well as an islet bearing a solar observatory that seems to rise from the lake.
