About Jal Mahal, Jaipur
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
"Awsome place i have visited many times it looks very beautiful at night. Good view but there is more dirt here. Plastic bags are thrown in most places. There is a lot of need for cleanliness and people should also cooperate in it the government can not do this work alone. It is possible only with the cooperation of everyone.
A beautiful scenery and peaceful place. The only lack I felt is that you could see this place from a far away distance. You cannot enjoy the closer view. But still it's beautiful, specially during the sunset.

Brilliantly illuminated all night. Appears even clearer during the day. A bay has been constructed where tourists can spend time.. Plenty of space to sit or walk around.
A beautiful palace located in middle of man sagar lake,Jaipur. Its lit-up at night time and its very beautiful. Good place for photography. Entry inside the place is not allowed. There is market on the side of the lake. Camel rides are done. Overall a very beautiful place. Plan this place with Amer fort since its on the same route, stop here for 30min or so not much to do.
