Since visitors are no more allowed into this lovely palace ,we had a photo stop on way back from Amer! There are lots of.birds in the morning. The serene lake with the majestic palace look magical in the morning light.

We were on a personal trip to Jaipur and heard that this is one of the must visit destination. It's a good view but the surrounding is really unclean and quite unhygienic. There is no maintenance of the place. Everyone has the access to this place which is fine but it also brings a lot of localites which leads to... More

Situated on the road to Amer fort the Jal Mahal is a nice photo opportunity. It is not possible to visit the palace at this time, although our guide suggested there are plans to turn it into an hotel. Our guide also stated that the water level around the palace changes depending on how much rain there has been and... More

Beautiful palace on a man made lake. We literally stopped to take photos and left, You will be asked by a lot if locals to purchase a photo session or gifts. If you don't want these please say no and most of them will walk away.

It is place on the way to Amer Fort. While coming back from Amer Fort , one can relax here for a while and see the scenic beauty of Jalmahal . Entry in Jalmahal not allowed. You have to see it from a distance.

The Water Palace is a gorgeous architectural wonder on the water, which is unfortunately abandoned due to an ongoing legal battle between the Rajasthani royal family, who want to retain it as their summer home, and the Indian state, who wish to sell it to a hotel developer. Regardless, the palace is an incredible sight in and of itself.

It's beautiful to look at from the waters edge, and will be even more exciting some day when they allow access to it. The area on the waterfront was interesting as well as it seemed to be a little carnival-iike in the evenings around sunset. There are even camel rides available during the day.

Great view of the faded opulence of a palace (actually a shooting lodge) in the middle of Lake Mansagar. You can't get to it so this is only really a photo and quick sightseeing opportunity. Try and get photos of the rats in the garbage with the lodge in the background!
