Great Architecture.....




Siliserh Lake
The scenic beauty of the place is truly awesome. Nestled amidst the forested sloped of Aravallis, it will be a treat to the eye of the tourists. Moreover, the conducive surroundings also attract a large number of migratory birds. These birds act as an added attraction for the tourists and also add to the beauty of the place. Besides its impressive looks, the lake is a hot spot of challenge loving people since it presents a perfect track for angling. The beauty of the pond is so graceful that one would not mind spending hours on its lovely banks. This lake is surrounded by thick wooded hills with beautiful chhatris on the embankment. This lake was once a source of the Alwar's water supply and various fishes and water birds can be seen in this lake. Situated between the Aravalis and overlooking the lake is the magnificent royal hunting lodge or Siliserh lake palace. One could spend hours by simply watching the waterfowl.
A boat trip in the lake, particularly during winter season, is a rewarding experience.
