you can't discredit a monument that the local people feel so fondly about, but apart from hopping out of the yuk yuk or car for 5 mins to take a few photos, there nothing to much else to the Jal Mahal. a little bit of history into it will make you look at it just a bit differently. but not... More

If you plan to visit this place and have photo session in mind then definitely you should visit either early morning or evening. You can also treat the fishes with some food ( buy from local boy and girls). Camel ride is a must try. Beautiful place. Boats takes you inside the jal mahal, though water smells really bad .

We were free in the evening. I called my taxi driver and requested him to take us around the city. He brought us here.I wondered how Jal Mahal stood on water from so many years.It is still in a good condition and standing the same. I wish I could see it closer and go inside it, but it is not...

You can't get any closer, but the view is simply magnificent. The idea for a poet or musician to spend your time there (and not having to live there) is food for your imagination.

Unfortunately the local population lack the respect of the roadside and rubbish is strewn all around and in the lake, ruining the close view. But nothing can touch the beauty of the palace.
