“FLOATING PALACE !!!!!!!!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Jal mahal is located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur on the way to Amber Fort. The access to this monument is by boat. One can devour the beauty of this palace from the promenade by the main road. One can feel that the Jal Mahal is floating on the water like a duck. It looks imposing on the water and there is little wonder it is one of the landmark monument of Jaipur. Another important photo stop in the sightseeing itinerary.

“Nice view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Now this is a quick stop over as you see it from the road and can not go to but it looks fantastic to see. You will not want to stay long as there is so many peddlers it will drive you crazy so if you are with a car don't let him park far as you will jump in quick and if you are with a tour bus, you will want to know where your is so you can escape.

“What a beauty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

This palace is on the way to Amber fort and other forts. So beautifully built in the water. Even-though there are no access ways to this, you can always take a walk on the promenade. There are few vendors selling stuff (Suprisingly they dont bother u much with their stuff)
It was so beautiful as we went by the Jal mahal closer to sunset, the colour of the sky glistening of water was so lovely.

“no need to stay longer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

it was palace which build with water arround, or some palace in the middle of lake. Looks like, some princess was being isolated. The water to prevent somebody go to see, inside the palce easily. The view is good to be taken as memory that u ve already go to Jaipur. No need to stay more longer, because there is no direction that we can visit or going to see inside the palace.
