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
Should have been a better place. Lighting is not up to the expectation. Not at all clean. Looks like used water/waste water is getting mixed up in the lake. Good place to feed parrots and photography in the evening. Snacks available. It Lack dustbins. People started business on the built chairs. So no place to Sit.
Unfortunately the visit to actual palace in middle of the lake is not allowed... But it is a beautiful sight and makes a nice place to walk in the evenings and for bird watching in mornings.... We particularly cherished the view of lake from our room window.... I could sit and look at it and hours would pass by.... Place worth visiting.... If you are a tourist you can also shop for some souvenirs to take back home
Nice tourist attraction. One can take a hotel nearby ,facing the Jal Mahal and experience the mesmerizing view . Sadly one cannot enter the Jal Mahal but can take view from a distance. There is no fees or parking charges at this place hence one can enjoy more without paying any charges. Also one can buy souvenirs here.(But remember to always bargain ).
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
Nicely located,Jal Mahal is situated in the midst of a lake. A spectacular five storied palace,out of which two stories are above water level is really mesmerizing view especially at night. Visitors are not allowed to go inside, just watch the beauty of the palace from the road.
