The Jal Mahal of Narnaul, Haryana is a place of exquisite delight. I decided to begin my trip with this wonder. It is a beautiful palace built by Shah Kuli Khan, who was an officer and ruler of Narnaul. The term Jal (water) came from the concept of the water, which surrounded the palace from all sides. However, unfortunately there is only a ground without any water in the present age. If seen from far, the palace seemed to be floating on the water like a boat thanks to the blue sky in the background and the colour of the Mahal.
Even now the Mahal seems to be beautifully carved as the architectures purely followed the designs of both Persian and Indian styles. The Persian and Indian architectures make the Mahal a place of wonder. Each and every carving is designed so wonderfully that anyone can be easily amazed. The main Mahal is placed in the middle of a tank or a reservoir, which in the past was filled with water. It had many chambers along with a bridge so that people could walk across the river. Even the water was cleaned regularly in order to maintain the beauty of the structure in the best possible manner.
The mahal has four minar or towers and a stairway to reach the top of the heaven. Imagine yourself a King or Queen, who in the middle of an island is the ruler of the world, the mahal gives you the feeling about that. The Jal Mahal of Narnaul, Haryana has some chambers below the water but they are submerged below these days. No wonder how things are not present like that of the past, but for sure it fills the heart with great joy and wonder when you actually got to the Mahal and feel like a king of such a wonderful palace of yours. The large and big Jal Mahal takes you to the world of peace and tranquillity away from the din and bustle of the congested city life. The Jal Mahal is a remarkable place to visit. Next, I moved to the Star Monument.
