musical show or not - still stunning
May 2019
there are days when the fountains have a musical show but we were not there for that but still found them beautiful with the intricate design features and the hundreds of sculptures. one of the first things you see when you are leaving the Chateau and are heading to the gardens.

An amazing feature.

The Water Parterres relates directly to the two large pools in front of the Palace, with four bronze statues depicting rivers of France, nymphs and children. There are other parterres which form part of the gardens.

Beautiful Water Fountains
Oct 2019
The exquisitely created fountains provide excellent background for selfies. Each ornately carved piece of the fountain tells its own story. The best part is to see each part of the fountain dancing in-tune with the music. I would suggest people to note the timing of the musical show and then visit the fountain.

Spending time around the Water Parterres
Oct 2019
The best and most relaxing place after the full tour of the outdoors to take selfies. Exquisitely sculpted tortoises sport the fountains all round the beautiful central statue.

Simply Great

There are plenty of beautiful fountains located within the garden that adds great refreshing feeling. Try locating all the fountains using the map provided. If you're lucky you will be able to see them all dancing to the music. Or else you might have to wait a bit and see. It's still worth a waiting for few minutes to see them.

A musical treat
May 2019 • Friends
The fountains throughout the palace are all spectacular in their own right. The music adds to the dramatic splendour.
