Again, beautiful but left to rot by the government and the concerned authorities, can be easily converted into a beautiful tourist spot.

This is just a photo stop on the way to the Amber fort. Lots of rubbish around but we were fortunate enough to see a mongoose rooting through it. At the far end of the lake there were white flamingos. Hawkers galore but we did enjoy watching the young magician.

pretty cool sight to behold- but it is on a busy street and surrounded by a market and lots of hawkers, so it is hard to enjoy in peace. the pollution on the riverbank is also sad.

I visited Jaipur recently with friends and wanted to see the Jal Mahal. We were told we are not allowed in the Mahal, but could visit the lake. We saw lots of water birds, including ducks, swans, egrets, etc. There are some beautiful metal sculptures between the road and the lake... with elephants and a procession of humans. Really nice....

Very bad smell coming from the lake and all water is like a drainage water. Picture and reality are very different and you can just spend some 5 minutes at maximum there.

Stopped here on our way back from the Amber Fort for a short break. Lovely position and a picturesque photo opportunity.

Like many places in India, the view is spoiled by the incredible amounts of trash along the lake and the stench from it rotting. Rats and other animals were everywhere.

The main attraction of the lake is Jal Mahal, the lake palace, which is a most beautiful building, which can change colour in different lights. There is also lots of bird life alonf the shores.. However, it is totally spoiled by the amount of rubbish along the shoreline, and can be very off putting.. We stayed in the hotel right... More

Saw it while returning from Amer Fort. Worth stopping for 10-15 minutes. You may site beautiful birds, if lucky.
