The palace is not open for the visitors, you have to stand by the side and enjoy the natural beauty. It is surrounded by a lake from all the sides and one has to stand near the lake and then admire its natural beauty. The water in the lake has become polluted over the years and the government has stopped... More

No transports to this place at present. But the view of the lake is good. the water getting contaminated by sewage water. But camel riding activities are available on the shore. the pudina jaljeera soda for Rs.20 is a worth drink to taste there

As beautiful as the water palace is, it is just a 5-minute stop in your way back to Jaipur. Crop-out the banks of the lake, and you've got a fairy tale setting. The downside is that you cannot really access it, and the lakeside is crowded with souvenir salesmen. Still, it is gorgeous to see.

A nice monumental building right in the middle of a lake. Nice location with handicraft, textile and jewellery shops nearby. Lot of craft sales by the pavement also.

The Palace was very beautiful once upon a time, but now due to lack luster approach of local government, water outskirting the palace is very stinky. Though government has made a beautiful pathway outside the palace. You can atleast take beautiful pictures from here.

This palace was built by a king for his brother. Only accessible by boat but government stopped boat trips because the water was getting too polluted. Absolutely full of fish you can see them from the banks and fishing is allowed once a month.

A lovely place to watch out for Sunrise & Sunset and in night it gets more beautiful because of the lighting. Good for taking photos. Always full of crowd, Like a Choupati of Mumbai for locals. It's nice just the management has to work hard on the cleaning part as the water is getting dirty.

The palace is not open for visitors for we are allowed to stand by the side of the lake and admire the architectural wonder. Its a nice spot for a night picture when the place is lit up. The place around the lake is not very clean and has a lot of small hawkers and shops. Spend 10 mins and... More

The palace is located in the middle of the lake and cannot be accessed. It used to be a place of entertainment for royalty but now is closed and abandoned. It can only be seen from far and looks quite nice, but theres not much else to do.
