The Palace on the Lake
In the middle of Man Sagar Lake lies mostly submerged the Jal Mahal, the water palace. While the Jal Mahal is not open for visitors, it still is an impressive sight. Apparently, the palace is a five story building, four of them submerged in water when the lake is full.
The pedestrian road that accompanies the lake was not quite either. Merchants selling charms and trinkets were everywhere on the floor, tourists were snapping pictures of the themselves with the distant Jal Mahal, and Indian ladies dressed in traditional Indian dresses were posing with passerbys.
I still had some time to spare so I figured I’ll visit the park up north before I caught a train to Agra. It was quite a relaxing trip. I walked around, took some pictures and just lay down on the soft grass while I wrote on my journal.
Looking back, I had no idea what I was going to encounter and I remember feeling excited as well as nervous. What I did know though was that I was extremely looking forward to it and couldn’t wait to get on that train.
