This is one of my favorite places in Jaipur. The view of the palace looking like it is floating on the shimmering blue waters is truly magnificent. Walking along the shoreline boulevard and taking in the romantic vistas is a must for any visitor to Jaipur. Even on the hottest days you can get a cooling breeze as the wind... More

The palace sits in the middle of a lake. It looked beautiful. It will be better if visitors are allowed to enter the palace.

We just stopped on the road and took some photos from afar because you actually cannot go to jal mahal. The roadside spot is very dirty, and stagnant water is collected there.

You can drive by this while in Jaipur, besides for some pictures there isn't much more to this sight. Rumor has it that it is going to be turned into a hotel.

You get great views across the lake to Jal Mahal. Unfortunately we could only stop during the day. I believe that it is fantastic lit up at night. Apparently it is being converted into a 6 star hotel so maybe you will be able to get a look inside in the future.

Jal Mahal is a five storeyed palace built within the Mansarovar lake. During rainy season, four of the storey of this palace remains submerged in water. This was built as a place to stay during the hot summer season. The concept of building a palace within a lake was indeed great. There was no ferry service to the palace. We... More

One cannot go inside the jal mahal, but seeing from outside is so impressive that one feels to go there and spend time. Its good place to take photos as well.
