Fairy tales offer that solace for one to break away from the hustle-bustle of daily life, and planning a vacation at the Taj Lake Palace provides that dreamy ambience of yesteryears. The Palace is located at Lake Pichola’s heart. The construction involved in its building is pure white marble. It’s a magnificent piece of artwork that’s glitzy through the vibrant mosaics at night. It truly is one of the most romantic art pieces.
The Palace was built by the 62nd successor of Mewar Dynasty, Maharana Jagat Singh II in 1746. He’s thought to be a direct descendent of Sun God. Myth has a way to play a trick on the mind, and dreamers can be kings under the sun for the memorable time spent here.
The Palace’s background is filled with Aravalli Mountains’ omnipresence. On the other side of the Lake, there’re majestic palaces. The Taj Lake Palace spreads around 4 acres of space.
