Moosi Maharani Chhatri

The impressive cenotaph (Chhatri) on the banks of sagar lake was built in the memory of bakhtawar singh’s mistress, who performed sati over here. It is rated as one of the finest in its class. The upper portion in marble has collonaded pavilions and domed arches with exquisite floral tracery. While the lower storey  has pillars in red sandstone.

Mythological and court scenes in fading gold-leaf painting and sculpture adorn the ceiling. The picturesque ‘sagar’ lake is a concrete catchment, with a pattern of stairs and tiny kiosks in perfect symmetry along the sides.
