Beautiful palace on the lake it’s a real shame you can’t enter it anymore. Lots of street stalls by the lake selling different items. You wouldn’t need much time to visit the lake to view the palace but definitely worth a stop off.

Visit here only if you have visited other Jaipur attractions before. Cause it is advisable to spend only 30 mins here . No doubt it is beautiful 😍 but nothing much to do here.

I was excited after reading about Jal Mahal on the website. But when I visited, it didn't look like what they showed in the picture. Look like it is not maintained. Boating was not there. You can just take picture from the Lake side.

Must see how Mahal was made in the middle of a lake it's amazing site to look at. Only down side the amount of rubbish that gets thrown in to the lake it will be nice once it's all cleaned up

The Jal Mahal looks magnificient in the middle of the lake, esp. during evening time. There is a place from the road where you can see the mahal. The road has an amazing shopping area (a street long). Enjoy the sight plus shopping ;)

This place looks beautiful, however it is regrettable that it's not open anymore for public visits. From far side, view of this palace located at the heart of 'man sagar lake' is breath taking. The place is under restoration and lake cleaning till further notice....More

The palace is located on the lake and it has 3 storeys beneath the water. The sad part is one cannot take a boat tour and see the palace closely. After sunset the light effects make this palace look more beautiful.

This is a drive by stop for pretty pictures. This history is fascinating but it is closed to the public and only accessible by boat to officials. Still it is visually mesmerizing given the story of why and how the maharaja built this Palace. So...More

It's en-route from Amer fort to Jaipur city. It's in middle of a lake, and access is not open to public. Though there are some places on the lake side from where you can take nice clicks of the place. There are many hawkers sitting...More

Jal Mahal is not accessible at all now. The only glimpse you can get is from the road.

Sorry I got totally confused. As far as I am aware you cannot go inside Jal Mahal, you can only view from the roadway across the lake. Great views in the evening when it is lit up.
