Balsamand Lake and Palace

Balsamand Lake and Palace


Sprawled over 300 acres of luxuriant greens in a valley ensconced with sandstone hills, the Balsamand Lake Palace is located on the Mandore road that lies at a few kilometers from the main Jodhpur city.

Overlooking the serene Balsamand Lake, the Balsamand Palace is a 16th century heritage mansion that was constructed to serve as a summer palace for the Marwar royalty.

The Balsamand Palace served as a tranquil summer getaway for the kings and queens of Marwar in the medieval era and today it offers a quiet retreat for those interested in spending a heritage holiday far from the noise and bustle of the bright city lights.

The Balsamand Lake Palace was converted into a heritage hotel in 1996 by Maharaja Gaj Singh II.

The Balsamand Lake in Jodhpur is a man made reservoir that was dug in the 12th century and served as an important source of water to the Jodhpur city for a long time. Feel royal as you picnic near the Balsamand Lake cosseted by mango trees, guava and papaya groves on all sides with scenic vistas of the red sandstone Balsamand Lake Palace and the dust-brown hills beyond.

So come and tour the Balsamand Lake and Palace with Indian Horizons and explore a fantastic illustration of Rajputana architecture at its intricate best.
