Built as a hunter’s lodge during the reign of the Maharajas of Jaipur, Jogi Mahal is located at the banks of the picturesque Padam Lake. After the park was declared a wildlife reserve, the building was converted to a rest house to accommodate visitors. Although it is only used by the forest department now, it is essential to give it a visit and experience a great view of the surrounding nature. Right next to the lodge, is located what is known to be the ‘Second Largest Banyan Tree in India’. The banyan tree is said to be more than 600 years old and is a home to large numbers of Langurs and birds found in the national park.
