Jal Mahal - Review
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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Jaipur itinerary 1 day.

Jal Mahal, Jaipur Reviews
Jal Mahal is a beauty amidst the lake. You cannot visit the monument and one has to satisfy themselves by standing on the road side and adoring it's beauty. At nights it's well light and looks remarkable. It is said the building is comprised of five storey in which only two are visible since the other three are submerged in water. On the roadside there and many street food stalls one can enjoy street food and adore the beauty of Jal Mahal
It's a good place but because of government apathy it's not getting it's share of popularity. Palace in the center of lake. Persons are not allowed to reach till palace. You can just have a view from distance. If you have nice zoom camera can take close pics else useless to visit. Not disable friendly. Sometimes you may found public toilet something authority move it some where else. Local people come here to feed fishes in lake and sometimes to throw garbage in lake also. A stink laden air may welcome you.

This is very beautyful place..and a must visit place on Jaipur. If you are a peace loving person you should go there. You can sit here for as long as you want. There is no charges or tickets.. You should go there at about 4 pm, to enjoy it's beauty. There you will get street foods, ice creams, and most important is low budget marketing.. And it's a good place for photography too
Beautiful place to visit specially at night. The lightning of the place is eye catching. There is no proper cleaning facilities and you can not watch the Jal Mahal closely. The view is still so attractive and peaceful. There is a lot of space in open for sitting. No entry fee and all. Go and spent time after evening.
