Amer Fort Lake With Floating Garden :
While riding the elephant up to the Amer fort we passed the lake with the floating garden called Dil-e-Aaram garden which means “Comfort Of The Heart”. It’s very beautiful, unfortunately the season (March) was a dry season hence the lake water was very-very low.
The Amber Fort stands on a steep hillside and rises above the waters of the Maotha Lake, an artificial lake that also worked as a water reservoir for the dry months. Access to the fort goes through the Dil-e-Aaram Garden, which is – like all the other gardens in the Amber Fort – built in the traditional Mughal style based on the Islamic concept of chahar bagh (originally from Persian and also spelled charbagh), a “four garden” that represents the Islamic paradise garden with its four waterways. These gardens are defined by their central water source and their quadripartite design, in which each section is further divided into a series of geometric beds.
