about jahaz mahal

Jahaz Mahal next to Hauz-i-Shamsi, can be literally translated to the ‘ship palace’, the name is derived from the reflection of the palace on the reservoir, which lends it the appearance of a ship. The encroachment all around the monument has completely destroyed the façade of the main entry on the east, though there is an entry from the West & South as well. The palace overlooks a big park in the south and is often visited by the locals around.

Despite its popularity amongst the locals the monument lies in the poor state and needs major restoration work to preserve the beauty of its architecture and intricate detailing. The palace houses impressive cenotaphs and blue tiled work which adores its dome making it a delightful structure to visit.
