TRAVEL: India Part IV

The Jal Mahal, JAIPUR



A water palace built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II some 300 years ago.  The Mansagar Lake is now clean and fresh, the pavilion beautifully restored, there are many wall paintings by local artists - tinglingly decorative!  
A stunning Moghul Jasmine Garden is built on the roof [note the lotus flowers made of marble in the water]




Samod Fort, Rajastan
