The view is amazing. We can only see it from the lake side since tourists are not allowed to go inside. It would have been nice if people were allowed inside ....

Jal Mahal at a sun-setting time was absolutely surreal in a boat, which happens to be the only means to reach the monument! With its beautifully renovated interiors, carefully designed by well-known curators, its as charming as it can get. At twilight, the lights in the mesmerizing garden space on top of the monument enchant the entire space. A must... More

Me, with my family members have visited this place on 10th November'14 evening. Though the Mahal is visible from a lakeside platform beside Jaipur road, we passed our evening there and enjoyed the lovely view of the palace.

A selfie and photo spot. This still raises eyebrows that 3-4 centuries back how could they build such a structure? We can't go inside though. :)

Tourists are not allowed to cross the water to gain the entry into Jal Mahal. So, one can only view it from distance from road-side. It is a wonderful structure from the point of view that it is constructed on the waters, but otherwise this is just like any other building.
