It is a summer palace built for duck shooting. It is in the middle of Mansagar Lake in Jaipur. Recently Govt of Rajasthan has renovated the bank of the lake as a recreational spot for Jaipur public to enjoy the evenings. Nice place to visit.

Stopped by on the way back from the Amber Palace. Its beautiful but photographing it in the afternoon didn't do it justice. I need to return just so I can photograph it at sunset!

You can only observe jal Mahal from the street. It is a beautiful building and well worth the stop to see.

Loved the place, it's beautiful and looks amazing specially at sun set. The only problem is the crowd. Don't really know which is the best time to visit. However you should definitely avoid evenings if you hate crowd.

It would have been a one of the biggest attraction of Jaipur. Unfortunately it is closed for restoration for many years. Not sure when it will be open again

However, Jal Mahal is located on the route to Amber Fort, and you can stand there on the pavement around the water-body where the lake is located. You can even take pictures and eat street-food there. How I wish I was able to go there.

You cannot get to Jal Mahal - only watch it from a distance. However, this palace is very beautiful and the location in the lake makes it a very nice photo shoot. You will pass it when you go from city center of Jaipur to Amber Fort.
