The JalMahal or the Water Palace is situated in the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur. It has been a part of the legacy of the Royals for many years but was restored and then enlarged by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. The whopping five stories of the palace are a beautiful marriage of the Mughal and Rajasthani architectural styles.
But Four stories are underwater and hence the Palace made of red sandstone looks like it is floating above the water. The top floor remains above the water level is topped with several “Chattriis” which are typical of the architecture of that time. Maharaja Jai Singh II had also built Chhatris bearing that are in homage to several rulers from before his time. The ones not be missed are the ones belonging to Maharaja Pratap Singh, Madho Singh II, and Jai Singh II. Built in white marble, they also have incriptions on them.
