Frozen in time

This picture was taken in one of the rooms in the main palace of the Bal Samand Lake Palace. Its now a heritage hotel run by the welcome group. Built in red sandstone the hotel was initially built as the summer residence of the Jodhpur Maharajas. The palace overlooks the Bal samand lake that was artificially created in the late 13th century as a water reservoir to supply drinking water to the city.

This was my second visit to the palace, and I would say its one of the best places to stay in Jodhpur. I would visit to Jodhpur yet again only to stay in Bal samand Lake Palace.
