Jal Mahal

Jal Mahal of Jaipur is a pleasure palace built in the 18th century. Situated amidst the picturesque Mansagar Lake, the palace has the Nahargarh hills forming its backdrop. Jaipur Jal Mahal Palace is an architectural beauty and was meant to be used for the royal duck shooting parties. Developed as an enjoyment spot, it is entered through a causeway situated in the middle of Mansagar Lake.

The Nahargarh Fort situated nearby offers a splendid view of the lake as well as the palace.

Way to Akeropom (Ghana)

On the way to Akeropom. It is situated at higher altitude about 60 minutes of drive from Accra (Ghana). This area is called as Mountains and I had entirely different thought about it when I planned to go there instead of Lake Victoria (Biggest Lake in the world). It was not that bad though but the Lake would have been a lot better.
