Jal Mahal

We were lucky to stay in the Regenta Central hotel right opposite, so did not have far to walk for great views. This place located in middle of man sager lake in Jaipur city.

Well it seems too good to be true, a rare sight which can only be seen in Udaipur apart from this place. Its like a floating palace. Definitely a must visit if you are in Jaipur, I did fell in love with this place, the very first time I saw it.

The lake is beautiful with Jal Mahal in the background. Not sure if you can actually visit the building. We were on the lakeshore and saw it from afar. However, this is a GREAT area for street level shopping with all kinds of folkloric artwork being sold by the locals. We got some good deals and the local people are... More

After visiting the Amber Fort we stopped to look at this fascinating palace. It has a feeling of haunted peacefulness. The lake that surrounds it was man made many years after the palace was built. Worth a photo stop.

This building appears to float on top of the lake and we found out is often used as a back drop for family occasion photos. What a super background for a wedding photo.

The water and grounds around the palace are disgusting. Trash is all over the place. It's a shame that the Indian government or some other group doesn't tidy up this palace as it has a lot of potential to bring in tourist revenue. We just stopped by the side of the road for a quick photo and then moved on.

This beautiful architectural wonder can be seen in the lake but the view is marred be the trash along the waterfront around the lake...it is unfortunate because the site could offer so much more...
