It is a very beautiful place with so attractive scenery. But the architecture is not well maintained by the authority. The best time to visit this place is early morning or late evening in the yellowish sun rays. Nice place to visit

As others have said this is worth a quick stop but not much more. The area along the road near where you stop is crowded with vendors so you need to be cautious and aware. We stopped right after sunset and the view was good...More

The view from the maximum closest distance is good - nearly a KM. But what about interiors & architectures - very disappointed. We are losing a historic site as the authorities not allowing general public here.

Nice place. Good landscape for photography. Not clean at all. Not using properly as iconic place. Better to visit either morning or late evening.

Looks quite soothing amidst the hustle bustle of the city. Quiet place to spend an hour. Entry is not permitted so you can view from far.

Although not as impressive as the lake palace in Udaipur, the Jal Mahal is well worth a look. There are a lot of pickpockets and hawkers though so watch out. If you're heading to Amer, you can stop off on the way back and take...More

Sorry I got totally confused. As far as I am aware you cannot go inside Jal Mahal, you can only view from the roadway across the lake. Great views in the evening when it is lit up.

Presently no shoot is permissible inside the Jal Mahal Palace as the Restoration and development of Mansagar lake as Tourism Project under PPP is under litigation.
