Jal Mahal

Jal Mahal Palace, Jaipur by dusk

Although it has been more than 6 months since I updated my blog, this post from Jaipur covers our experience from the very same day as my last post: 27th February 2010.

The Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds) which was the star of my last post is definitely the most famous of Jaipur's landsmarks, but another of the elements has its own landmark her: Jal Mahal or Palace of Water.

You cannot actually visit the Jal Mahal - at least not at the time of our visit - but its scenic location in the middle of a lake on the highway to Delhi, makes it an extremely popular photo stop for most visitors. And justifiably so: It i a very attractive sight, particularly as darkness falls and the palace becomes beautifully lit.

A picture taken a few hours earlier than the one above. It is attractive even in daylight.
We were lucky enough to visit the Jal Mahal during a full moon, adding even more to the atmosphere
