This is a drive by stop for pretty pictures. This history is fascinating but it is closed to the public and only accessible by boat to officials. Still it is visually mesmerizing given the story of why and how the maharaja built this Palace. So...More

The monument highlights the irony of present day - people are ready to sit on garbage to get a good selfie or a profile picture. Not undermining the beauty of the monument but local authorities are to blame.

This Palace is privately owned and access is not allowed. However it is popular to walk along the lakeside ( on a separate promenade to the road) and take the air. Beautiful

Jal Mahal is not accessible at all now. The only glimpse you can get is from the road.

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.
