Neermahal Palace, Tripura, India

Tripura’s most iconic building, the 1930 Neermahal, is a gorgeous red-and-white water palace, empty but shimmering on its own boggy island in the lake of Rudra Sagar. Like its counterpart in Rajasthan’s Udaipur, this was a princely exercise in aesthetics; the finest craftsmen building a summer palace of luxury in a blend of Hindu and Islamic architectural styles.

The delightful waterborne approach by speed boat (passenger/boat ₹20/400) or fancy rowboat (passenger/boat ₹20/100) is the most enjoyable part of visiting. There’s a sound-and-light show in some evenings, but only if the power supply holds up.
