Welcome Heritage Bal Samand Lake Palace

Balsamand Lake was built in 1159 AD by Balak Rao Parihar. This artificial lake is situated 5 km from Jodhpur on Jodhpur-Mandore Road. If you are in love with nature and want to enjoy it in a palace, then this is the place to be. This property is set over 300 acres of perfectly manicured gardens(which are housed groves of trees like mango, papaya, pomegranate, guava and plum), a beautiful lake and a golf course and still has only 35 rooms,  so it’s peaceful and one of the best places to unwind and relax. You can even enjoy a horse carriage ride(buggy) in a perfect royal style. There are around 35 best breeds of horses in the palace and full equipped stables for them, you can go have a look at them and even enjoy a ride.

You can live here like Maharaja’s and that too on  a pauper’s budget.
