Since this beautiful palace is in Alwar, the temperature usually stays high here. And since there is a lake just in front of the Ram Bihari Palace, it would be a good idea to visit when this lake is filled with water and not dried up.

This is why monsoon and winter season is the best time to come here and stay at this palace. The climate is slightly cooler during this period and the lake has more water for you to enjoy.

You will also be able to go for a boating and enjoy being surrounded by the small hills nearby.

Personally, I love spending time in the water and can easily stay hours relaxing in it. So, when given a chance to do the same at the Ram Bihari Palace, I definitely made the most of it.

The pool is located at the terrace and gives and amazing view of the entire property. But the best part is how beautifully it is lit up at night, allowing you to enjoy a quiet and relaxing night sky.

Enjoy Boating in the Siligerh Lake

Another amazing thing that you can do while staying at Ram Bihari Palace is to go for boating in the opposite lake, Siliserh. In fact, there is also a palace with the same name located next to the place which can offer a great view of the entire lake.

You can enjoy a few hours beside the lake, enjoying a delicious lunch and then sail around in the lake during the sunset time for a completely satisfying day.

Check Out the Alwar Fort

If you love forts then make sure that you set aside half a day for the famous Alwar fort. This fort was built in the 1550 and still stands tall on one of the hills of the Aravalli ranges and offers a panoramic view of the entire Alwar city.

So, you can spend some time exploring this fort and learning about its history while enjoying a scenic view in front of you.
