Man Sagar Lake - Review

This artificial lake adds volumes to the beauty of Jaipur city. Recently Man Sagar Lake has undergone an intensive cleaning which has rendered it to me more beautiful and beaming with migratory birds. In the midst of this lake, stands Jal Mahal, an exquisite piece of architecture with structural base in water. People come here and sit here for hours to enjoy it’s refreshing beauty and aura. In the mornings and evenings, this lake renders the surroundings cooler than the rest of the city, welcoming people to spend time here.

  • This is the lake with the Jal Mahal in the middle of it. There are people there selling fish food, and it is a fun activity for some to throw that food to the fish and to see them gather around. Most of the water is dirty now, you will spend a maximum of 15 minutes here anyway

  • Man sagar lake is on the way to amber place and jaigarh fort, jal Mahal also situated in the middle of the lake- build by kings of amer . There are some walking tracks. best time to come at evening to see jal mahal and the lake with the lights, it looks awesome. You can click some snap yourself or there are also some professional photographer with some ethnic dress gate up. Street food also available, you will feel a small fair( mela) . experience is nice after returning from jaigarh and amber place.

  • Nice place. Good for natural lovers. Well planned artificial lake. Must go once.

  • Jal Mahal (meaning "Water Palace") is a palace in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur city, the capital of the state of Rajasthan, India. The palace and the lake around it were renovated and enlarged in the 18th century by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Amber. The Jal Mahal palace is an architectural showcase of the Rajput style of architecture (common in Rajasthan) on a grand scale. The building has a picturesque view of the lake itself but owing to its seclusion from land is equally the focus of a viewpoint from the Man Sagar Dam on the eastern side of the lake in front of the backdrop of the surrounding Nahargarh ("tiger-abode") hills. The palace, built in red sandstone, is a five storied building, of which four floors remain underwater when the lake is full and the top floor is exposed.[1]One rectangular Chhatri on the roof is of the Bengaltype. The chhatris on the four corners are octagonal. The palace had suffered subsidence in the past and also partial seepage (plasterwork and wall damage equivalent to rising damp) due to waterlogging, which have been repaired under a restoration project of the Government of Rajasthan.[2] The hills surrounding the lake area, towards the north east of Jaipur, have quartzite rock formations (with a thin layer of soil cover), which is part of Aravalli hills range. Rock exposures on the surface in some parts of the project area have also been used for constructing buildings. From the north east, the Kanak Vrindavan valley, where a temple complex sits, the hills slope gently towards the lake edge. Within the lake area, the ground area is made up of a thick mantle of soil, blown sand and alluvium. Forest denudation, particularly in the hilly areas, has caused soil erosion, compounded by wind and water action. Due to this, silt built up in the lake incrementally raises the lake bed.[3] On the terrace of the palace, a garden was built with arched passages. At each corner of this palace semi-octagonal towers were built with an elegant cupola.[4] The restoration works of the early 2000s were not satisfactory and an expert in the field of similar architectural restoration works of Rajasthan palaces carefully examined the designs that could decipher the originally existing designs on the walls, after removing the recent plaster work. Based on this finding, restoration works were re-done with traditional materials for plastering – the plaster consists of a partly organic material: a mortar mix of lime, sand and surkhi mixed with jaggery, guggal and methi powder. It was also noticed that there was hardly any water seepage, except for a little dampness, in the floors below the water level. But the original garden, which existed on the terrace had been lost. Now, a new terrace is being created based on a similar roof garden of the Amer palace.[1] The building is located near the shoreline of a lake with a maximum depth of 15 ft. Though 4 stories of the building are under the surface of the water, they would be build into the bed of the lake.
