Leaving the Amber Fort/Palace complex we travelled along the lakeshore back to Jaipur. We made a stop at a vantage point to take photos of Jal Mahal -- the "Water Palace" a palace located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake. An amazing amount of work had been done on the lake. The lake drains were diverted, two million tonnes of toxic silt were dredged from the bottom, increasing its depth by over a metre, a water treatment system was developed, local vegetation and fish reintroduced, the surrounding wetlands regenerated and five nesting islands created to attract migratory birds.

It was also a good chance to buy refreshments from a roadside cane juice vendor.
