Jal mahal is on the way to Amber Fort. This place is in the lake and makes up for a good point for photography. You cannot go to the jal mahal as there are no means to reach it like boats or etc so you can view it only from the outside. There are sign boards which urges everyone not... More

They do not allow tourists to enter the mahal, one has to sit and watch it from the lake side. This place is nice to be visited in the evening, though not much to see.

You cant visit the fort as it is in the middle of the lake. As there are small parks around, you can visit this place during the evening. Worth and watch and take a photo with.

The idea of seeing a mostly submerged lake palace seemed intriguing at first, but when we got there, my feelings quickly turned to disappointment. The lake itself is filled with rubbish, and the surrounding areas are actually repulsive (even for India). The palace itself looks amazing, but the government should put some effort into restoring it to at least some... More

The place looks good as it is situated in the middle of a water body, but you cant go there. You just look at it from the roadside but the place is definitely picturesque. The surrounding area is more or less like a place where you would love to spend an evening enjoying some street food . Do plan a... More

An impressive building but unable to approach as in a lake. It was obvious some of the lower floors are now under water. Lot of hawkers in the area although early in the morning was quieter.
