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.

  • Oh the view of the palace in evening is so beautiful and can't be resist if you are driving by. great place to take a walk in front of this palace and enjoy coconut water. To my knowledge unfortunately there is no way to get inside the main palace !!

  • Very good place, beautiful place. Just garbage and littering by people has restricted it to 4 four star. There are adequate dustbins and tourists are not sensible enough to take garbage to home and throw it. Well it is a good place to visit, everyone wants to go to main palace building, but due to restoration not one can go there.

  • One of the good place to visit with family and friends in Jaipur. Tasty road side food. Many bird species visits Jal Mahal. Superb place for bird lovers. I used to go to see various migratory birds in school time. I love this place.

  • First and foremost you couldn’t visit this Fort, all you could do is click photos around its banks which is filled with street peddlers. This place looks magnificent though and need proper maintenance from authorities.

  • The place is soothing. You can enjoy if you want. There is a small market in front of the place.
