Very pretty photo opportunity

Our guide told us the story behind the palace of winds and we stopped to take a photo. It is not possible to go there but the photo came out well.

A palace constructed within a lake is what best describes Jal Mahal. Jal Mahal served as the summer palace for the royal family of Jaipur. It's a five storeyed structure. Some floors of the palace is submerged in water. The number of floor submerged at any given time obviously depends on the water level in the lake. During rainy season... More

The view of Jal Mahal in Man Sagar Lake is beautiful but the place needs maintenance. Firstly the lake needs cleaning coz the view of the dirty water hampers the lovely sight ahead. It would also be nice if hawkers were restrained from the area since they are the ones dirtying the place and the historical structure. Definitely worth a... More

We are not allowed entry to Jal Mahal but only can take pictures from the shore. The entire shore is so dirty, we dont feel it is a tourist spot. Jaipur administration should get this place cleaned up to encourage tourists to visit this place.

A stunning must visit palace set in a lake. Best to visit early evening when cooler and you can find a variety of colourful souvenirs being sold by locals on the streets which you can barter down to great prices. Take a camel ride and enjoy the sights and smells.

Since visitors are no more allowed into this lovely palace ,we had a photo stop on way back from Amer! There are lots of.birds in the morning. The serene lake with the majestic palace look magical in the morning light.

We were on a personal trip to Jaipur and heard that this is one of the must visit destination. It's a good view but the surrounding is really unclean and quite unhygienic. There is no maintenance of the place. Everyone has the access to this place which is fine but it also brings a lot of localites which leads to... More

Situated on the road to Amer fort the Jal Mahal is a nice photo opportunity. It is not possible to visit the palace at this time, although our guide suggested there are plans to turn it into an hotel. Our guide also stated that the water level around the palace changes depending on how much rain there has been and... More

Beautiful palace on a man made lake. We literally stopped to take photos and left, You will be asked by a lot if locals to purchase a photo session or gifts. If you don't want these please say no and most of them will walk away.
