We wanted to get onto a boat and go near the place.. but our driver said, govt has restricted tourist due to some renovation or something ..hence took some distance photos of this place standing on the road. There are many shops close by selling different items. Opposite this place, one can also visit the Rajasthan tourism outlet for all kinds of local favorites like bandhani sarees, kurta, turbans, lucky gem stones, jewellery etc.. It is a big complex by govt and rates are reasonable.

We stopped here on our way back from the forts. Its a very surreal looking structure! We wish there was a little more info on the palace. There are tons of vendors nearby so you’ll get hassled a little.

JAL Mahal looks good at night only ...beware of the cheap guides..they will take you to the places of their commission for eg rajasthali and Habib shoe place ...those place are heavily overpriced..keep these things in mind and enjoy

This is merely a photo opportunity because you cannot go out to the palace or explore it.

However, it is a livery structure and my wife and I were pleased we stopped to see it and have a photo opportunity.

Be aware there are hawkers and begging all alone the shoreline.

Jal Mahal is situated between the river with no access to public to reach there. So it has to be viewed from far, nice view, half of the mahal is immersed in water, the lane of mahal is crowded with many shopkeepers, hawkers. Just a walk around the lane in evening is good.

On the way back from Amer to our hotel, we stopped by at Jal Mahal. Had some papdi chat and ice creams there. Lot of local hawkers were selling their stuff and you could spend some time there. My daughter wore rajasthani dresses and we took 2 pictures (hard copies) for 150. The mahal is inside the lake and not accessible but good view from the far.

It is impossible to get closer but it is located on the way to the Amber Fort anyway so it is okay to have a short visit.

By the way, the items selling around are much cheaper than the shopping archade near Hawa Mahal.
