about vijay mandir mahal

Made at the whims of the notorious Maharaja Jai Singh Prabhakar in 1918, next to a lake, Vijay Sagar, that too was the Maharaja's creation, the palace with its 105 opulent rooms is the only saving grace of Jai Singh’s legacy.The palace is located at a distance of 10 km from the main city. Beautiful and majestic, the massive castle reveals itself angle by angle. 


Skirted by a lush garden that does its best to surround this mammoth architectural splendour, if your visit coincides with monsoons or right after a spell of rain, do catch the reflection of this royal, Rajput splendour in the lake's cool, placid waters. It is said that Jai Singh built the palace and its surroundings on the lines of a ship set to sail. You can get this incredible sight mostly during or after monsoons when the lake is full. Being dependent on rains, the lake is frequently below its full brimming capacity. 


Wander through the palace’s rooms and take a break in its serene gardens. Within the palace complex is a beautiful Sita Ram temple, generally crowded with devotees and visitors alike that reaches mob size during the Ramnavmi celebrations, festival to celebrate the birth of Lord Ram.


There is a catch to visiting the palace. You will need a special permission from the Alwar House in Delhi.

It used to be one of the main attractions a decade back but now it has been closed for visitors. You need permission from district magistrate to visit the place. Many bollywood movies have been shot here !
