Create an itinerary including Jal Mahal
Admire Jaipur’s majestic “floating palace,” Jal Mahal, situated in the middle of Man Sagar Lake. The red sandstone palace supposedly dates back to the 18th century, but has been renovated and restored numerous times. On a lakeside stroll, you’ll find that the palace appears to be floating on the water's surface, but in reality only the top floor of the imposing building is visible, while the rest are submerged underwater. While entry into the palace is prohibited, you can take a boat ride on the lake to inspect it closely, or enjoy the view from the land. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Jal Mahal and many more Jaipur attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Jaipur trip planner.

  • A wonderful place for sight seeing where you will not find much crowd and hawkers around it are very decent and reasonable. 10-15 minutes are enough to visit this place

  • Beautiful palace in the water. You're not allowed to go but the view is amazing. Very picturesque and good breeze. Lots of street food also available. But the place is crowded. Good to spend 1 hour

  • Beautiful, peaceful and scenic. The beauty of the place comes out best in evenings though and early morning visit would be delightful for sure. You can feed the fish but I felt that the fish were pretty overfed. You can feed the ducks but they hardly come to the shore. You can see interesting birds like Flamingo and Crane sitting on one leg in the water.
  • This was such a beautiful place visited around 5 years ago. Clean and safe with so many things around. It was on the side of the road with less crowded, beautiful place and river flowing around made it soothing to visit this place Visited with the parents and also Many things from there which were sold by people out there
