It's just a piece Of building symbolizing love of a king for her queen. No access due to a family feud as the last king did not mention who will own it after hid death. Good to take pictures only.

Amazing Mahal in between the lake. We could'nt watch it from inside as its under court dispute. But still its a great attraction to watch.

You can only view it from the road...not allowed to go by boat to the jal mahal. Tourists should be allowed to go inside Jal Mahal

I wish I could stay here. We are not allowed inside. It was being reconstructed. We just saw it from the main road while sitting inside the car

It's nice to see the palace in the lake, however that's all you can do. The area around it was dirty and smelly and there was no way to get closer, so after taking a picture it was time to move on. it is on the way when you go back to town after visitting the amber fortress.

I had great expectations for the Jal Mahal. Now there is no access to the palace and looks in pathetic condition. Water level have increased substantially and few floors are submerged inside water.

One should go to Jalmahal in the evening, it is good. Blue water of the lake and the lighting makes it like an illusion. It looks like a palace in the evening. The light breeze from the lake makes the place so amazing that you can just sit there for an hour or two doing nothing.
