The Sheesh Mahal (Palace of Mirrors) was once a part of the private apartment of Maharaja Ajit Singh of Marwar (r. 1707-1724). It is located towards the rear end of a hall (now the textiles gallery) which was once used as residential quarters by the Maharajas of Jodhpur.
Under the arches in Sheesh Mahal are painted gesso panels depicting gods and goddesses such as Brahma, Shiv- Parvati, Devi and Ganesh on their thrones. Krishna is pictured playing the flute and lifting Mount Govardhan. Ram and Sita appear with Hanuman.
The wooden ceiling and the European glass chandelier suspended on it are later additions and were added in the 19th century. The original 18th century ceiling is displayed on the floor.
