The palace which is located in the middle of the lake....🕌⛲🕍⛪... ... ..... Nice place for sunset point with loved one... You can buy local items near this palace. This place is more attractive if it allowed boating around the palace. ...

Looks like it would be an impressive location to visit if it was possible . Visit in the afternoon when the smog of india dissipates if you want a nice photo.

Stopped off for some photos of Jal Mahal and the wildlife, great architecture. Make sure you keep away from the part where the water/drains flow into the lake. Great views of the Pelicans. Well worth a stop.

The Jal Mahal was made by one of the kings as a recreational place. Many other kings would be invited for a stay. Artisans have soulfully worked around every aspect of this masterpiece. A must visit for those who love history.

Nice place in Jaipur to spend a quiet evening if you are fond of water bodies. It is enroute to the Amber Fort. This place sees maximum visitors in the evening. There are number of street vendors selling ice cream etc.

This is just a quick stop on the way to or from the Amber Fort. The palace is in the middle of the lake and looks like it is flooded. The palace is not open to the public and the view is free. The view...More

The Palace itself is inaccessible, but the street itself has great view. Specially when lights in evening are turned on. The small chowpati sort of feeling, with good bargain stalls to buy traditional stuff.

Jal Mahal is not accessible at all now. The only glimpse you can get is from the road.

Sorry I got totally confused. As far as I am aware you cannot go inside Jal Mahal, you can only view from the roadway across the lake. Great views in the evening when it is lit up.
