Elevating the charm of Venice of the East, Lake Palace is among the best heritage hotels without doubt. Honeymoon couples shouldn’t miss on this. The Lake Palace dates back to 1743 and now it’s a luxury property with 83 rooms that will make you revisit the olden era with the comfort of modern facilities.
The palace was constructed facing east, allowing its inhabitants to pray to Surya , the Hindu sun god, at the crack of dawn. The successive rulers used this palace as their summer resort, holding their regal durbars, in its courtyards lined with columns, pillared terraces, fountains, and gardens.
During the famous Indian Sepoy Mutiny in 1857, several European families fled from Nimach and used the island as an asylum, offered to them by Maharana Swaroop Singh. To protect his guests, the Rana destroyed all the town’s boats so that the rebels could not reach the island.
