Jal Mahal Jaipur : Eye-Popping Remodeling

The next day we got ready for our next destination early in the morning. After settling in the air conditioned cab I was desperately waiting for the time when we would reach the Jal Mahal Jaipur. It is located at a distance of four km on the northern part of Jaipur and on the Amer-Jaipur main road. Jal Mahal is renowned as an exotic location. It is located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in the city of Jaipur

The Palace and the lake around it were modernized and enlarged in the 18th century by the then King Jai Singh II of the state Amber. In recent times this Jal Mahal has been given a make-over to make it a bit modernized. Boat-makers from the tradition loving city of Vrindavan have been called to make boats for this lake area and they have manufactured magnificent wooden boats in traditional Rajput style.

These boats are the medium to travel to the Jal Mahal. This lake used for recreational purposes is full of fresh water and spread at an estimated area of 300 acres. Nestled amidst the Aravalli hills on the three sides and habitable plains in the southern, this is an exotic location. I learnt that the lake used to be a paradise for bird watchers as it was a natural habitat for nearly one hundred and fifty species of birds.

Some of the species have started visiting the lake again and some birds as the Common Moorhen have started breeding in the lake also. I took many photographs of this lake and also of ourselves in many poses to remember this journey. We also ate many delicious delicacies and tasty food items so as to get the exact taste of typical Rajasthani cuisine. Every one became the fan of all this various food items as it was really extraordinary. I also bought many items as gifts for friends and family members.
