Just saw it from outside the lake as it is inaccessible. the Jal mahal is submerged in water as the water level rose upto 3 stories after it was constructed.

The Jal Mahal is 4km to the north of Jaipur and is located on the main Amer-Jaipur road. Possibly the most serene sight amidst the chaos of Jaipur is the beautiful Jal Mahal Jaipur, the Water Palace. This low-rise symmetrical palace, that once was a shooting lodge for the Maharajah, appears to float in the centre of Sagar Lake.A typical... More

It looks half-sunken or floating, depending on how you look at it, but we were told that the part of the palace seen above water is only one level out of... More

Now, you cannot go near the palace as they have stopped the boats, but it looks really beautiful, I wish I could have seen it from near but we saw from the lake side. Still it was very beautiful.

Fortunately this magnificent palace was located opposite to our hotel. This palace is located in the middle of the lake and it looks beautiful at night with lights on. You can see the reflection of the palace in water at night. Entry to this palace was closed during my visit as the renovation process was going on. Unfortunately the surroundings... More

This palace is one of the amazing creation of Mughals. Unfortunately we cant visit inside and can only stare the beautiful architecture from the bank of lake. This place also resembles the strong archaeological understanding and superb capabilities of architects of ancient india. A MUST VISIT TOURIST ATTRACTION IN JAIPUR
