Jal Mahal

Recently renovated, the 18th Century, Jal Mahal (“Water Palace”) is located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur city, Rajasthan, India.
It long remained an abandoned dilapidated palace in the midst of the sewage laden lake. With the urbanisation of Jaipur city and areas surrounding the lake, the ecological system of the lake and its vicinity deteriorated drastically.
A major clean up of the lake lasted 6 years and included re-alignment of city drains, de-silting and planting schemes.

  2. A Índia deve ser um país fascinante, mas a merecer uma visita longa e muito bem preparada.

    1. Deve ser um país de grandes contrastes e como tal não deve ser fácil de visitar.
