Wake up as early as you can. Take some feed for fishes and go to jal mahal. There is a long track on main road, but there is another track going inside towards the hills. Go interior and sit on the bank of pond there are stairs to sit, feed fishes, it is very calm and peaceful

The Jal Mahal or water palace can only be viewed from the banks of the lake in which it is situated- it is spectacular and no visit to Jaipur would be complete without visiting this attraction. It helps that the water palace is on the road to the Amber fort-the other must see attraction of Jaipur. Every morning multitudes of... More

Its only that you see some old structure in a middle of the lake. The best enjoyment part for kids was that on the corner of the lake their are lot many fishes and people serve them with bread.

You cannot swim and reach the fort, no boats, no tickets. The guide cum driver had no clue why such a place was built. It is easier to stop by after visiting amber fort on return route. Stop and take pictures. That is it.

Jal Mahal stands in the centre of Man Sagar Lake which is on route from Jaipur city to Amer Fort- beautiful 5 storey palace of which only 1 floor is visible above the water. Definitely has a beautiful charm especially in evening lights & reflections on water- but we are only allowed to observe from a distance as the place... More

It was observed on the way and we stopped for better view ... Nothing much to do other then to shoot a few pics ... better place to visit is when we pass it while heading to amber fort and turn right , ample space and parking makes it more peaceful visit away from hawkers But this visit inspired us...

A breathtaking site you can see from the main road out of Jaipur,I stopped here on the way to City Palace from Amber Palace,Surrounded by water, the Jal Mahal looks like its floating, reflecting gently off the water,Nice spot for clicking pics. Palace is beautiful though not acessible to public,At last nice spot and worth a quick photo....

Yes. I am writing this review in very strong words.I remember 15 years before when I visited Jal Mahal - It was an amazing ancient piece of architecture standing effortlessly on calm blue bed of water. The scenic beauty was up above the levels of charm and the pure breeze was quite captivating. This time when I visited --- It... More
