With a splendid regal palace, the lake has an inspiring mix of breathtaking beauty and architectural charisma. This pretty lake is festooned with domed cenotaphs, which themselves boast of a grandeur in architecture.
Besides its impressive looks, the lake is a hot spot of challenge loving people since it presents a perfect track for angling. The magnificence of this stunning water body can be awe-inspiring from the balcony of the palace hotel.
