Water Palace.

On the way back from the forts, this lake palace is worth a stop by, the walk by the road is usually crowded by street vendors.

The property I guess is not accessible for common people, you can only click pictures from the sides of the Lake

A nice looking palace on the lake. Not much you can say about but that. You can't get to it but nice to look at as you wander the lakefront stalls

You can't actually go in to the water palace but it looks pretty from the shoreline. The lake is beautiful with walkways around it and people selling their wares. It's a nice area to spend half an hour away from the busy streets in the city centre ... more like being in a park

You can view this place from afar , it is not accessible. The whole area is strewn with garbage. You'll get hassled by groups of kids and hawkers.

Jal Mahal is beautiful by anyway. But no one can enter that. We can only taste the beauty from a long view (ie. from the banks of the lake).Spend some time on the banks with your loved ones. Nice view, you can see lot of pigeons there, feed them, have some chats there.

Honestly, I expected a lot from this place but it literally turned down my high expectations as the water (jal) for which it is known was literally stinking and not clean at all. I really feel this place has a beautiful view and Jaipur tourism should take the authority to clean it so that people who would visit would like... More

Although I never went inside but this place is awesome and outstanding. It is in the middle of the lake. The architecture stunned me. I loved this mahal.
