Jal Mahal, Jaipur

3.5
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.

  • This does not qualify a tourist attraction. It does not offer anything to stop by, and spend time. You can only watch it from the shore and cant get close to it. You can very well watch it on a drive....  more »
  • I’ve been going to Jaipur my whole life but only this once did I visit the Jal Mahal! Unfortunately one can’t go too close but it’s still a site to savour !  more »

  • Sadly there is no entry for tourist and I really wanted to go inside. The palace is very beautiful partly submerged under water. It is beautiful at night. Since it is one of the tourist the govt should Maintain the place
  • As name says it is obviously a Palace built in center of water. This is a place which let you falling love with Jaipur in a second. Its beautifully built in center of lake, that makes its stunning. Been there many time but always feels like first time i am vising and love the surrounding view, you will find many pigeons and they enhance the beauty of this place. cant wait to go again
