If you visit the Amber Fort you will likely pass the floating palace. We stopped and enjoyed the view from a distance as you can not access the palace located in the middle of the lake. The lake shore has numerous fish which can be fed using stale bread purchased for a few rupees at lakeside. What we enjoyed most... More

Jaipur,otherwise is not a cold place and sight seeing is done in the day, could be tiring,particularly forts and outside spots. Jal Mahal( water palace) in the middle of water has many restrictions and as a tourist one really doesn't see the best of this beautiful palace standing in water but evenings are worth and least crowded. The management ensures... More

the reflection of the fading sun and the exotic look of the mahal in the middle, makes it one of the best options in jaipur for low light landscape and portraits..the open space just in the front is good enough for a nice evening walk.... here , you can sit and relax unlike other attractions of jaipur (forts,mueseum etc) where...

as you can't actually access the fort, it's good place to have a chaj in the afternoon or evening. see the scenery and carry on with the sightseeing.

There must be reasons why people aren't allowed to go in the palace as such, but that kills all the fun. Its an amazing structure and very beautiful too. But watching it from the sides of a road is not really as much fun.

It is almost impossible not to drive past it when visiting Jaipur. Unfortunately you can not enter the Jal mahal at the moment.

A beautiful sight , On the way to Amber Fort, one should persist in any case, even if you can not visit Jal Mahal. It's worth it!

The concept of a palace half submerged in water is awesome and the views definitely do not disappoint. The water was a beautiful blue and it was great for photo-taking. But they should have hired boats to take people closer to the palace -- I feel like that is a missed opportunity that could really make the place worth a... More

This is located in a lake by the main road. Sadly at the edge of the lake there is barbed wire and a lot of rubbish. Put your camera over the top of the barbed wire and you will get a great photo. You can't get any closer than this.
