Jal Mahal, Jaipur

Situated on the way to Amber fort in Jaipur, Jal Mahal stands in the middle of the Mansagar Lake. Built in 1707, this picturesque 18th century palace has lately fallen into disrepair due to lack of maintenance and further due to deterioration of Mansagar lake, which is highly silted due to the wastewater coming from the residential colonies of nearby areas

Jaipur Municipal Corporation decided to develop a project, that includes archaeological conservation of the monument by renovating the structure in its original form and developing sustainable tourism and recreational facilities. The unique location (and proximity to a number of tourist locales) and aesthetic beauty of the monument is being used as an opportunity to develop the whole area as a potential tourist centre

The components proposed to be included in the project after architectural restoration are rooftop cafes, boating, tourist cottages and clubs, heritage resorts, villages, a craft market, a floating restaurant and light and sound shows. There are also plans to promote water sports in the lake

Mansagar lake is being restored to provide the original backdrop to Jal Mahal. The integration of different component development in the project will provide means to improve the water quality of the lake for recreational water sports as well as to maintain the quality and water level for a longer period

PDCOR has advised Government of Rajasthan, right from conceptualisation of the project to the procurement of developer
