About Sheesh Mahal in Jaipur
Sheesh Mahal in Jaipur is as beautiful as other mirror halls built in different royal residences of its time in India. Famous for intricate mirror work, this pavilion was built in the Amber Fort by the imperial family. The construction began under the orders of Man Singh in the 16th century and it was finished in 1727. It is located inside the third courtyard of Amber Fort which used to be the private quarters of Jaipur’s royal family. A tapestry of mirror panels and multi-coloured ceilings, Jai Mandir structure houses Sheesh Mahal in Amber Fort.
Made with opulent décor and extraordinary detail, Sheesh Mahal provides a glimpse of the royal artistry. It is a wonderful specimen of ultimate craftsmanship as well as a blend of Islamic and Rajasthani architectural styles. Visitors can see that it is where royalty meets with celestial beauty. It is artistically built by the decoration of ceilings and walls and is one of the main attractions of the fort complex. A hall with small windows allows a panoramic view of Maota Lake below and surrounding hills in the vicinity.
Sheesh Mahal was constructed to please wishes of the queen who wanted to sleep under the stars. So reflections of a candle or two would light up entire halls due to mirror walls and give it a feeling of the night sky. These mirror walls also used to keep halls warmer in the winter season.
