Impressive place views from the outside. Couldn’t have chance to visit the indoors but only the views are worth it! Stay away from merchants in that area.

Lovely setting. Man made lake, with Palace in the middle. However discarded litter and row and row of " tat" spoils the experience.

You can't go there. You can't reach their.. You can only view it from distance, which is not v enthralling Hopefully they would start boating service to Mahal someday.

Jal Mahal is on the way to Amber Fort. Anyhow you can go inside this place just have to watch and click pictures for a distance. Can wait for couple for minutes while returning from Amber Fort to click few pictures.

A nice place to spend time. Cool breeze alongside the waterfront with beautiful view of Jal Mahal, as if it is floating on water. Can spend some time relaxing. You can also pick up small things, momentoes etc from roadside vendors.

This beautiful palace truely appears to be floating on the lake, While breathtaking its magnificence it is also sadly in a state of dreadful disrepair. Tourists are no longer able to visit. What should be a 1-2 hour tour is now only a pit stop...More

Sorry I got totally confused. As far as I am aware you cannot go inside Jal Mahal, you can only view from the roadway across the lake. Great views in the evening when it is lit up.

Presently no shoot is permissible inside the Jal Mahal Palace as the Restoration and development of Mansagar lake as Tourism Project under PPP is under litigation.
