Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Ship Palace (Jahaz Mahal), Mandu India
On the eastern side of the reservoir lies a spectacular palace, whose reflection in the surrounding reservoir resembles a ship that led to it being named as the 'Ship Palace' or Jahaz Mahal. The palace is the venue of a three-day festival - the Phoolon Walon ki Sair (the procession of florists) that takes place to date.
