Currently not open for public, however gathered its going to turn into a restaurant. 1. Its a marvel to look day evening and nights with light from afar. 2. Its an architectural beauty, standing on water for years together. I get amazed with the materials used to construct it on water...

This palace is situated amid a lake, and the scene is beautiful in the evening with lights dazzling. No activity over here, you just need to be on the shore and view the palace and munch some snacks.

From afar - jal mahal is majestic and so beautiful. Unfortunately, it is not open for viewing for the public. However, if driving by - it is worth stopping for a photo op with. Just stunning.

It's an impressive structure on the water but is not open for visiting. It's a good 2min stop off on the way to or from the Amber Fort for a photo but no more than that. If it was turned into an attraction though, I reckon this could do some serious business

We understood due to security considerations, we could not visit this place. We had to just view it from the banks of the lake. Indeed beautiful monument and must have been an engineering marvel of those times. Th undulating waters with floating ducks was a pleasant sight.

This must have made for a gloriously private retreat but it now looks rather neglected. It is certainly no rival for Udaipur's Lake Palace, despite what Jaipur might wish. Most views are from the road which puts the sun on its far side, making the view of merely a silhouette.
