Jal Mahal


Jal Mahal is located outside the population in the south of the city. It was constructed in 1591 by Shah Kuli Khan. According to history Shah Kuli Khan caught Hemu in the Second Battle of the famous Panipat. In the same feat, Akbar was pleased and handed over the fiefdom of Narnaul to Shah Kuli Khan. Jal Mahal has been constructed on a huge plot of approximately 11 acres. It is situated in the middle of the huge pond, but there is a bridge to reach the monument. Lime and stone have been used in the construction of this beautiful temple in the shape of a small palace in the middle of the huge lake. The pond was filled with soil in about 400 years of intervals. In 1993, the district administration started the removal of soil from the pond of Jalmahal and now its soil has been removed.
