Samand Palace is a fine specimen of the Rajput architecture.
Built in red sand stone and surrounded by wide expanses
of lush green gardens, it offers a quiet retreat from the
hustle and bustle of the lively town of Jodhpur. Situated
on the banks of the Bal Samand Lake - a 13th century water
reservoir that supplied drinking water to the city, it has
been an exquisite setting for royal leisure and recreation
for centuries. The palace has recently been converted into
a hotel with all modern amenities.
