Surrounded by water, the Jal Mahal looks like its floating, reflecting gently off the water. The water, its name sake, adds to its beauty by its mirroring, and the small palace in the lake makes you want to swim out and touch it. A must see in Jaipur, though you may not be able to go in anymore.

Jal Mahal is a building surrounded by water on 4 sides. Very scenic and beautiful, however, you can't go to the actual mahal. One has to just enjoy the beauty from the banks of the lake.

It's a shame this closed down due to rain and it being flooded. The water palace looks amazing but can only be seen from afar. You used to be able to take a boat out too it, which I can imagine would be nothing short of spectacular. It's worth stopping and taking pics, but even if you walk alongside the... More

We got a good 180 degree scenic view, while other 180 degree is town. You don't get to go to Jal Mahal, you can just view it from lake bank. There are street vendors selling handicrafts and other trinkets. I think authorities have done a good job trying to keep the area clean, but people are throwing plastic wrappers in... More

Its a very good place to see but due to the garbage this place stink a lot . You can carry your safety mask. Also if you are going there in rainy season please be aware of going near water its filled up very quickly and there is no life guard facility available.
