"Jal Mahal" Jai Mahal - lake palace Tip by MalenaN
Jai Mahal - lake palace, Jaipur: 21 reviews and 44 photos
Jal Mahal, the Lake Palace, is standing in the middle of Man Sagar Lake about 6.5 km from Jaipur. It was built in 1799 in red sandstone and it was used by the royals as a pleasure palace. Among other things they had duck shooting parties here. The first floors of the palace is submerged under water and it is now abandoned.
On my way to Amber the bus made a stop by the lake and I saw the palace. It looked very beautiful and I though that I must make a stop here on my way back to Jaipur. I stayed long in Amber so unfortunately didn’t make that stop on my way back. The photo is taken from the battlements opposite Amber Fort.
Directions: About 6.5km from Jaipur, along the way to Amber.
