“Beautiful scenic Place for Photography”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Travelers are not allowed inside Jal Mahal. Place surrounding the lake is good for photography and hangout. Remember to go in the evening if you want to hang out only. There is hardly any shade to take shelter. You can see Vultures, and many fish birds. The lake is filled with fishes & are visible from top.

“Never gets tiring”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

OK you can't do anything but look at it. But what a sight. It's such a shame they don't get their act together and save this building before they lose it. Fifteen years ago, they were going to turn the mail building into a restaurant and build a causeway out to it. The plan is still the same today
It is an absolute delight at Diwali with al of the floating lights but in all honesty it is wonderful at any time of year, day or night. Make sure you see this at least once

“Jal Mahal”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Nice view from outside. Don't know how it will be from inside. Maybe have to wait for a few more years to find out.

“Nice but it should be open!”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

I went to Jaipur looking forward to see the Jal Mahal. I had read an article about it and I was super excited to go and see it. To my disappointment, it has been closed for years, so all you can do is take a picture from the shore... Definitely think the government of Jaipur should open it for visitors and finance boats to take tourists. I think we would all pay a generous entrance fee to see the inside of it and enjoy the boat trip...

“Crowded”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

I could not believe the crowds here. It is a breathtaking edifice-the whiteness after dusty India is amazing.
