The name Jal Mahal refers to a palace created in water and that is what this Mahal is all about as it is located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur city, the capital of the state of Rajasthan, India.
It is an extremely romantic place with its red sandstone intricate architecture casting beautiful reflections in the calm lake water. Surrounded by Nahargarh Hills, Jal Mahal is known for its majestic architecture and sophisticated design.
The most fascinating fact about this palace is that the first four floors of the building are underwater and the top floor of the building is the one that is visible. 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.
I really admire whole concept of this palace. Isn’t it a marvellous historical structure?
