Jal Mahal is one of the best mahals in Jaipur. You should definitely visit this palace whenever you are visiting Jaipur. We reached the place in the evening. The entry of the mahal is permanently closed. the mahal was situated beside the main road. it was easily visible from the road. we clicked some pictures there. when we went there boating was closed. On the footpath there were peoples ofering
The Jal Mahal is 4km to the north of Jaipur and is located on the main Amer-Jaipur road. Most visitors to do combine a visit with the Amer fort as both attractions are on the same side of Jaipur. A typical visit to the Jal Mahal will be less than 30 minutes, enough time to take some photos. There used to be gondolas which would provide romantic boat rides across the lake but these rides stopped 3 years ago.
Apart from the small market stalls and camel rides, there is not much else to do here. But most important is the beautiful scene of Lake mahal. TheJal Mahal in Jaipur is a nice place for photograpy.
