Jal Mahal is beautiful by anyway. But no one can enter that. We can only taste the beauty from a long view (ie. from the banks of the lake).Spend some time on the banks with your... read more

You can't actually go in to the water palace but it looks pretty from the shoreline. The lake is beautiful with walkways around it and people selling their wares. It's a nice area to spend half an hour away from the busy streets in the city centre ... more like being in a park

You can view this place from afar , it is not accessible. The whole area is strewn with garbage. You'll get hassled by groups of kids and hawkers.

Jal Mahal is beautiful by anyway. But no one can enter that. We can only taste the beauty from a long view (ie. from the banks of the lake).Spend some time on the banks with your loved ones. Nice view, you can see lot of pigeons there, feed them, have some chats there.

Honestly, I expected a lot from this place but it literally turned down my high expectations as the water (jal) for which it is known was literally stinking and not clean at all. I really feel this place has a beautiful view and Jaipur tourism should take the authority to clean it so that people who would visit would like... More

Although I never went inside but this place is awesome and outstanding. It is in the middle of the lake. The architecture stunned me. I loved this mahal.

This is a palace built on a lake for maharajas to go on swan hunting. The lake is filthy but the view of the palace is nice if you are a photographer. You can spend about 15 minutes here.

From a distance the palace looks nice but the approach area is horribly polluted with plastic and garbage. This is not at all acceptable.

This is a structure in a little lake. You cannot access it, only view it from afar. The surroundings are quite filthy with lots of hawkers.
