This palace isn't open to the public but is a must see when visiting Jaipur. The palace sits in a lake and is one of the regular stopping off points for visitors to photograph. Apparently there are plans to turn it into a hotel.

You cant able to go to the jal mahal since there is no boat service to the place. The Jal Mahal is too old and not safe to visit inside as it may colapse at any point of time.

Do not look at the dirty water but marvel at the history of Jaipur and its kings and queens that built so many wonderful forts and monuments full of romance and valour. Stroll along the side walks and behold the scene of mountains and water fronted by Jal Mahal. Get photos taken and enjoy the morning and evening walks.

Jal mahal is famous attraction in Jaipur. It looks beautiful in the evening. We enjoyed a lot with our guest. The park around jal mahal was very neat and clean and there you can also take camel ride.

It looks like a beautiful palace because I watched it from riverside. I wish I could go inside. This palace can be used as a hotel or a restaurant like the Maiden's Tower in Istanbul. The riverside is very lively, there are many souvenir vendors and can find many things to buy but do not forget to bargain!!! It is... More

We only spent a few minutes here more for the photographic opportunity than anything else. It's a lovely view if you can get there at the right time of day for the sunlight but other than for the photograph not sure why else you would visit.

Although you can only watch it from the lake's bank it is fascinating. The palace and its reflection in the lake with the background of the mountains form a great spectacle.
