We didn't go during the days the fountains were working but it's so stress free to go midweek and arrive early So many water features. Beautiful

The golden coloured water parterres that are an ornate feature of the water fountains in the gardens of Versailles are well worth a photo stop, especially on a sunny day.

This is one piece of the architecture of the garden of Versailles. Visiting the garden is great adventure!

This is the main fountain of the garden, gives wow and royal feeling to the garden. Though fountain was not on, but still it looked very beautiful. One of the highlight of the garden for sure.

This was the main and largest fountain in the gardens. Very elaborate and very interesting to see. Great photo op here. Water was not on when we visited, so disappointed.

These fountains are must see when they light up during night. The sculptures and the carvings, the design are the best part of the water parterres. It is situated inside the gardens of Versailles and is one of the most photogenic or scenic spot.

This was stunning by day listening to the classical music. But even better by night when the fountains were lit. Followed by a spectacular firework display.
