enterprise that brings together the best resources of the Government of Rajasthan and the
private sector to revitalise a heritage site with a grand vision for the future. Restoring the
magic of the 18th Century pleasure pavilion of the Jaipur royal family, the Jal Mahal.
Reviving the waters and rich biodiversity of the Mansagar Lake. Transforming the entire
valley into a vibrant and viable destination for local, domestic and international tourists. And

In a state renowned for its intricate artistry, craftsmanship and cultural legacy, Jal Tarang
gives craft, retail area and the bazaar, pride of place on the waterfront. Boutique stores and
anchor shops will display the works of master craftsmen, traditional weavers, painters and
artists as well as contemporary Indian creations. Here, the bazaar and festival markets will
stand beside high end retail stores, traditional wares will keep step with contemporary
trends, and the young will be as happy to browse and shop as the old, and the locals as
excited as the tourists.
