Balsamand Lake Palace

Balsamand Lake Palace is located at a short distance of 7 km from Jodhpur city. Beautifully placed on a hillock facing the scenic Balsamand Lake, the eight pillared palace was built by Maharajah Sur Singh in 1159 AD as a competent summer retreat. The begirding hills and verdant gardens adds to the scenic beauty of the palace. The Intricately carved latticed windows allow the cool breeze to blow into the palace and the lakeside front provides phenomenal views of the lake.
