With the background of small hills, Jal Mahal looks just magnificent. We visited in the afternoon when the Sun was setting. Got some reach nice pictures. Nice place to hang around for half an hour. Must visit for Jaipur Trip.

It is a beautiful location with the palace in the middle of a lake surrounded by hills. One can catch a glimpse of the migratory birds and click pics of them. One can also see the fishes floating close to the surface of the lake. Kids will love it. A good place to take your family to.

It sits proudly in the middle of a lake, shame it can't be visited as it is closed to public. So take plenty of pictures from the road side or decent vantage points. It truly is a marvel, I just wish it is opened one day to public viewing.

Till a few years back this place was in total ruins. But thanks to the government , now it's a place worth visit. This place was once the summer palace of the Maharaja of Jaipur and is made in the middle of the lake. With renovation and it's proximity to the Nahargarh and Amber Fort, it had become a tourist...

Jal Mahal is located in the middle of the mansagar lake. The roadside food, scenic view of the Aravali hills and lake with Jal Mahal located in the center will steal your heart. You can visit this place at any time, but in summers, I recommend you to visit this place in the evening or early morning otherwise the scorching... More

When you look at this place it is just so intriguing. It makes you wonder how they managed to have one level of this palace submerged under water for so many years. A beautiful place.

The Jal Mahal was once the summer palace of the Maharaja and is now in ruins. It is not well kept and they don't allow tourists in for a closer look. So what you see in pictures is as good as it is. This place is worth a passing glance provided you get room to stand with the jostling crowd.
