Jal mahal is the palace build in the center of the lake as the name signifies. The palace has been closed for public access. However it feel nice to walk along the lake front where you will find many street vendor selling eatables. Some vendors sell breads to feed the fishes in water. Nothing to visit in particular, but it... More

Once you get past the people are try into sell you something including bread to fed the fish you get to see the palace. It's nice but not stunning, the water smells, very polluted with a number of dead fish floating about. India has some beautiful buildings but they are just not looked after, it's such a shame.

It is located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake on the way between Amer fort and Jaipur city. Its Mughal and Rajasthani architecture is amazing and that view of the palace in midst of water is astounding but the only factor of concern is the foul smelled water along with mosquito in large number. If this problem is... More

A 5 minute stop on way to Amber Fort for a photo. This place is nicknamed "mosquito" temple because only they can visit this island landmark! But hey, you'll get a cool photo so stop the car and snap.

This used to be Maharaja's summer palace and it was built in the middle of the lake to for the specific purpose of beating the heat.Make it a point to visit during the evening hours (5-6 pm) when you can get the most beautiful view.The Aravallis in the background add to the beauty and you can click some memorable pics.

The Jal Mahal is absolutely wonderful. While it is very beautiful from the outside, you MUST make an effort to go inside the palace. It has been beautifully restored and is not open to the public, but special permission can be obtained. They have divided it into three sections showcasing the life and times of royalty in the 18th century.... More

This beautiful structure is placed beautifully in Man Sagar lake. It doesn't require a special drive as its on way to Jaigarh and Amer Fort. While going to Jaigarh you can click its beautiful pics from upside road. Across the lake, you can view the Aravalli hills, dotted with temples and ancient forts, and on the other side, bustling Jaipur.... More

Jal mahal is a palace constructed in middle of a lake. However its not open for general public, hence one can only see it from the banks of the lake. There is a promenade created by the side walk of the highway for people to visit this place and view it from a distance. The locals seem to come here... More

Jal Mahal is also known as Jal Tarang. This is a nice structure i situated in middle of Man Sagar Lake and was built before 300 years by Maharaha Savai Jai singh II, founder of Jaipur City. We were just stopped here while our tour for Amber Fort because you cannot go in middle and it is not allowed.
