Well worth visiting. The street life that goes on in the evening is also entertaining. There are many food vendors & people selling an array of products at great value if you enjoy a haggle!

Nice Mahal but sad part is you can view it only from distance. It is in centre of lake, however public is not allowed to go to mahal by boat. Lighting of Mahal in the evening was very nice. Walk along the lake in evening is pleasant.

This is a palace located in the centre of water which has covered the first floor entirely and is now unable to be reached unless by boat. The only down fall to this visit is that you could only view it from a distance as there is no boat service to get close to the mahal for a closer look.... More

Built in the middle of the lake in Jaipur, one of the most famous historic city in India. The lake palace, reminded of the royalty the kings and queens of ancient India enjoyed.

Its an interesting palace situated in lake called Mansagar but unfortunately entry is restricted in this palace. Due to safety reason, government has closed it for visitors. One can take a good view and pictures from shore of the lake. So many visitors tries to go close to the lake to feed fish by trespassing the barriers and they unclean... More
