Weekend Reflections

The city of Alwar in Rajasthan has many lakes around it. This is one such lake, Lake Siliset, on which the former Maharajah had built a palace. The palace is now a popular hotel.
The Aravali hill range surrounds the lake, which is the habitat of many birds , fishes and crocodiles.

A part of the famous 1967 Hindi movie 'The Guide' was shot around here, and astonishingly, the place still looks the same.
My thanks to James for hosting Weekend Reflections.You can see more pictures at http://newtowndailyphoto.blogspot.com

  2. The towers on the tiny island and their reflection in the lake waters are beautifully captured. I couldn't locate the palace, though. Is it seen in any of the pics?
