Lake Pichola looks good from a distance, but up close in areas is quite dirty, having soap suds and algae growing around the edges. However, the marble palace, which was inaugurated in 1746, has been turned into a hotel and restaurant. We viewed the palace from a distance at the City Palace, and immediately decided that we had to eat dinner there. That evening, we took the launch that leaves from below the City Palace. In the darkness we arrived at the quay servicing the lake palace, and after a stroll around the grounds, were seated in at a corner table with windows of the lake on two sides. The meal was extraordinary, but so was the price. We also saw antique sailing vessel depart from the palace into the night. Aboard was a full restaurant and bar for a special party.
