Travellers are not allowed inside the place. Just a view of the palace in the lake. Just a place for a snap on the way back from Amber.

This is in a lake...the area around is a little smelly, but it is worth a photo. You can't get into this at the moment, but they are looking to convert it to a restaurant or hotel in the future....

We had the chance to look at this lake palace due to its location just across from our hotel (Trident Jiapur). Nice to read about it and get a few pictures. Definitely added some enjoyment to our stay in the city.

It can be viewed from front and entrance to the palace is not allowed. It is beautiful with birds flying over water and chat/snack shops for the tourists in the evening. good place to spend an hour while returning from Amer. Very crowded on weekends.

A really incredible view from afar. We had hoped that we could walk all the way around the lake but really you can only view from one side. It would be great if they could find a way to reopen the temple to visitors and...More

I heard that Jal Mahal is open only on weekends, or maybe there is something special on the weekends, is it so?

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.
We are planning to have pre wedding shoot inside jaal mahal .but since boating are not allowed what are the charges and procedure to have a shoot at jal mahal

Response from Gun N | Reviewed this property |
Presently no shoot is permissible inside the Jal Mahal Palace as the Restoration and development of Mansagar lake as Tourism Project under PPP is under litigation.
