PRIME ATTRACTIONS
Siliserh Lake:

The Lake is picturesquely set amidst the forested slopes of Aravalli Hills. The lake attracts a lot of migratory birds adding colour and music to the scene. But for the hustle of the whispering woods and chirping birds, the place promises total calm and is ideal for a trek.

PALACES
Siliserh Palace:

Cradled in the hills and overlooking the lake, is a magnificent palace or the royal hunting lodge. This tastefully built old palace provides a breathtaking view of the water spread of the lake and its surrounding environment. The basement of this four storeyed palace leads to the water level of the lake. Now converted into a tourist hotel and managed by the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation, Maharaja Vinay Singh built this palace for his queen, Shila. When paddle boating, tourists enjoy a splendid view of the palace from the lake, while others view an equally spectacular sunrise and sunset from the terrace of the palace.
