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.

  • जयपुर की एकमात्र झील है जल महल...जैसा कि इसके नाम से ही महसूस होता है...जल के बीच बनाया गया महल...जो देश विदेश से आने वाले हर सैलानी यदि जयपुर में आते है..तो जल महल उनके लिए सबसे मोस्ट पर्यटन स्थल है....जयपुर आमेर रोड पर बना जलमहल बेहद खूबसूरत है...चारो और अरावली पर्वतमाला से घिरा हुआ बेहद रमणीय पर्यटन स्थल है। जयपुर-आमेर मार्ग पर मानसागर झील के मध्‍य स्थित इस महल का निर्माण सवाई जयसिंह ने अश्वमेध यज्ञ के बाद अपनी रानियों और पंडित के साथ स्‍नान के लिए करवाया था। इस महल के निर्माण से पहले जयसिंह ने जयपुर की जलापूर्ति हेतु गर्भावती नदी पर बांध बनवाकर मानसागर झील का निर्माण करवाया। इसका निर्माण 1799 में करवाया गया था। इसके निर्माण के लिए विशेष रूप से तैयार की गई नौकाओं की मदद ली गई थी। राजा इस महल को अपनी रानी के साथ ख़ास वक्‍त बिताने के लिए इस्‍तेमाल करते थे।

  • Jal Mahal Jaipur also known as Water Palace is considered as one of the most beautiful architectural palace.Visitors are not allowed to enter the Palace. But you can enjoy the view of the palace by boating in the lake. It is very beautiful and elegant place. It was a great experience. This mahal is also called water palace. I really enjoyed a lot here.

  • जलमहल राजस्थान की राजधानी जयपुर के मानसागर झील के मध्‍य स्थित प्रसिद्ध ऐतिहासिक महल है। अरावलीपहाडिय़ों के गर्भ में स्थित यह महल झील के बीचों बीच होने के कारण 'आई बॉल' भी कहा जाता है। इसे 'रोमांटिक महल' के नाम से भी जाना जाता था। जयसिंह द्वारा निर्मित यह महल मध्‍यकालीन महलों की तरह मेहराबों, बुर्जो, छतरियों एवं सीढीदार जीनों से युक्‍त दुमंजिला और वर्गाकार रूप में निर्मित भवन है। जलमहल अब पक्षी अभ्‍यारण के रूप में भी विकसित हो रहा है। यहाँ की नर्सरी में 1 लाख से अधिक वृक्ष लगे हैं जहाँ राजस्थान के सबसे ऊँचे पेड़ पाए जाते हैं।[1] मानसागर झील के मध्य स्थित जल महल स्थानजयपुरनिर्देशांक26°57′13″N 75°50′47″E / 26.9537°N 75.8463°Eझील का प्रकारमीठे पानी की झील- मनोरंजनकारीजलसम्भर क्षेत्र23.5 वर्ग किलोमीटर (9.1 वर्ग मील)अपवहन द्रोणी देशभारत सतह क्षेत्र300 एकड़ (120 हे॰)अधिकतम गहराई4.5 मीटर (15 फीट) तटीय बसेरेजयपुर

  • Jal Mahal is a palace which is a five storey building of which 4 floors are submerged in water and when the water level is low the lower floors are visible. Sadly we can't go there near the fort, we can only watch it from the walkway. The walkway is very good for morning walks. It's just an another Amazing view.

  • Superb place... this palace is in the maiden of lake and surrounded with full of clean water... This is also a great picnic spot and best for outing... Market is also available here for food and drinks... parking facilities is also available here... Easy to reach anywhere from Jaipur...
