Jal Mahal, The Water Palace is the most tranquil place in the middle of the chaotic Rajasthan. This beautiful ambiance, once upon a time, was the point of shooting for Maharajas: they used to come at the center of Sagar Lake. It was built by Maharaja Madho Singh. It was constructed out of pink sandstone and the awe-frigging symmetric geometrical pattern. A few years before, it was almost abandoned with the stinking water of the lake surrounds the palace, but the incredible effort of Rajasthan government had renovated and brought the glory back. The superimposition of light sand color of the walls and the deep blue water is a magnificent contrast; you have ever seen.
