A four - but only if you're driving past on the way to the Amber fort

Great view of the faded opulence of a palace (actually a shooting lodge) in the middle of Lake Mansagar. You can't get to it so this is only really a photo and quick sightseeing... read more

It's beautiful to look at from the waters edge, and will be even more exciting some day when they allow access to it. The area on the waterfront was interesting as well as it seemed to be a little carnival-iike in the evenings around sunset. There are even camel rides available during the day.

Great view of the faded opulence of a palace (actually a shooting lodge) in the middle of Lake Mansagar. You can't get to it so this is only really a photo and quick sightseeing opportunity. Try and get photos of the rats in the garbage with the lodge in the background!

Dissapointing - dirty, littered and hassled alot by guys wanting to take your photo. One saving grace was amazing street food .

The property I guess is not accessible for common people, you can only click pictures from the sides of the Lake

On the way back from the forts, this lake palace is worth a stop by, the walk by the road is usually crowded by street vendors.

A nice looking palace on the lake. Not much you can say about but that. You can't get to it but nice to look at as you wander the lakefront stalls

You can't actually go in to the water palace but it looks pretty from the shoreline. The lake is beautiful with walkways around it and people selling their wares. It's a nice area to spend half an hour away from the busy streets in the city centre ... more like being in a park

You can view this place from afar , it is not accessible. The whole area is strewn with garbage. You'll get hassled by groups of kids and hawkers.
