One of the most ethereal sights in Jaipur is the architectural marvel of Jal Mahal, which is standing right at the centre of the Man Sagar Lake. Conceptualised as a hunting lodge by Maharaja Madho Singh I and restored by Jai Singh II in 1734, it is built according to a blend of Rajput and Mughal aesthetics, with pink sandstone. The sandstone paints a vivid image against the blue backdrop of the water and the distant rolling hills. The palace is a five-storeyed building and about four storeys stay immersed when the lake is full. At night, bathed in dreamy lights, the palace seems as if it’s floating in the lake's water. In the vicinity of the palace is the gorgeous Chameli Bagh, which is a paradise for birdwatchers. Some of the avifauna one can spot here includes pochard, coot, flamingo and kestrel.
