Jal Mahal Jaipur, known for its sophisticated design and grand
architecture, presents one more unique palace, the Jal Mahal
perched amidst the Mansagar lake. Once a home to one of the prime ministers
of Jaipur estate, this palace was developed as a pleasure spot and was used
for the royal duck shooting parties. Surrounded by Nahargarh Hills, the Jal
Mahal is extremely romantic, with its red sandstone intricate architecture
casting beautiful reflections in the calm waters of the Man Sagar Lake, full
of hyacinths. It is now abandoned, but very well-preserved and provides a
picturesque view from Nahargarh Fort.
The beautiful Jal Mahal is known for its majestic architecture and
sophisticated design. Built opposite the cenotaphs of the royal family, the
four floors of Jal Mahal are under water and only the top floor remains
outside. The lake eco system is a favorite home of a number of migratory and
resident birds. The Mansagar Dam is situated on the eastern side of the lake
and provides a good vantage point for viewing the lake and the valley.
