The JalMahal or the Water Palace is situated in the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur. It has been a part of the legacy of the Royals for many years but was restored and then enlarged by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. The whopping five stories of the palace are a beautiful marriage of the Mughal and Rajasthani architectural styles.
But Four stories are underwater and hence the Palace made of red sandstone looks like it is floating above the water. The top floor remains above the water level is topped with several “Chattriis” which are typical of the architecture of that time. Maharaja Jai Singh II had also built Chhatris bearing that are in homage to several rulers from before his time. The ones not be missed are the ones belonging to Maharaja Pratap Singh, Madho Singh II, and Jai Singh II. Built in white marble, they also have incriptions on them.

You can only see the Jal Mahal from far from land as it is not allowed to go to this Mahal...it look good from far a Mahal built in center of a lake. But you can't enjoy the details of construction...and will be always a suspense about it's interior and history.. Also adding to above...you will find plenty of street vendors selling local items but it's better to judge the quality and authenticity of each item at your personal ability.
Beautiful view of the palace can be enjoyed in the night with the reflection of Fort light into the lake. The place is not open for view from incident & can be viewed from a distance only. The place is occupied by various local vendors, selling clothes, eatables etc... View of the lake can be enjoyed from Trident located exactly opposite to the lake. Not much of a sight seeing, though can be seen once as it is also called the "Summer Palace" of the Royal family.
One of the most beautiful place that is unknown to many people till now. Archaeological survey of India should promote these heritages more to aware people of our hidden treasures like this. People are going around the world to see their heritages but visiting once our own heritages.
Had a great expectation to visit the place. But it's just viewpoint which you view it from road. Don't expect any boat pedalling or some kinda ride arrangements to go near the place. The viewpoint is attractive with its lighting,so visit it during evening to catch a nice glimpse of it.
It's very beautiful place, mid side of water. It's more beautiful in tha evening time when due to covered by coloured lights. But there are no way to go inside it. No entry available We can only see from roadside. It's includes in Jaipur's good one.... .
