The Banquet Hall is now
called the Jal Vihar. Carved screens, designed by poetic craftsmen
separate the dining area from the reception hall.
The vaulted ceilings
of both halls are crowned by moulding of the Ashoka Lions of India.
The floors are laid with priceless Persian carpets inlaid with ancient
motifs that evoke the Mughal era.
The Governor hosts
banquets here for dignitaries and visiting Heads of State. Sterling
occasions when the silver salvers reflect the luminescence of the
tiered chandeliers. With each artistic leitmotif echoing another, Jal
Vihar creates for guests an impressive dining experience.
