JalMahal, the name is telling you the meaning, if you are not able to understand then i tell you, Jal means water and mahal is palace, so its on the side of the road and people come and stare the beauty of this place, its a cool hangout place in the evening and with friends and family. so come and see this amazingly beautiful place.

If you visit the Amber Fort you will likely pass the floating palace. We stopped and enjoyed the view from a distance as you can not access the palace located in the middle of the lake. The lake shore has numerous fish which can be fed using stale bread purchased for a few rupees at lakeside. What we enjoyed most was walking among the various food and souvenir vendors. Several street urchins approached us and wanted to demonstrate their magic skills. We picked a little girl to show us her magic and she gave a great show. While there we went across the street for our photo op with a camel. Overall a great stop on the tour.

Jaipur,otherwise is not a cold place and sight seeing is done in the day, could be tiring,particularly forts and outside spots. Jal Mahal( water palace) in the middle of water has many restrictions and as a tourist one really doesn't see the best of this beautiful palace standing in water but evenings are worth and least crowded.
The management ensures it is not messed up and controlling is visible.
On the way to Amber its well spread area of lake and recently improved by a pvt company holds a great future. Hotels are galore in the area and picturesque looks make this place a cool tourist spot.

From the terrace of jahaz Mahal , we were treated to a confused but highly interesting sight of structural ruins on the northern end of Munj lake . As we were told that Jal Mahal was one of them which could be identified for sure and others were neither identified nor there was any idea about their original layout , we decided to explore it .

Jal Mahal was used as a monsoon retreat by the Sultan of Malwa . The Mahal was called Jal Mahal as there were many small baodis of various shapes e . g . a lotus bud one , a fully blown lotus one , a long rectangular one , another brad rectangular one in its courtyard . I was amazed to see the techniques used to purify the water , to reach the water level from ground , to harvest the rain water . The rest of the complex and these baodis were interconnected by a pathway . On both sides of the pathway there were three sets of broad and long sloping ten steps to reach the water of the lake on the palanquin and pony . Each set of set had two small arched culverts for not to obstruct the flow of the lake due to these obstructions .

As we were seeing one amazing monument after another within a walking distance from each other , we wondered whether we loved each other more than we loved Mandu .

the reflection of the fading sun and the exotic look of the mahal in the middle, makes it one of the best options in jaipur for low light landscape and portraits..the open space just in the front is good enough for a nice evening walk.... here , you can sit and relax unlike other attractions of jaipur (forts,mueseum etc) where you are always on the move..
