The Jah Mahal is an extremely famous palace located in Jaipur (”The Pink City”), the capital of Rajasthan. Jal Mahal is translated as ”Water Palace” in English. The palace is situated in the heart of Man Sagar Lake. You are not allowed inside the palace to explore. This is to protect and preserve the beauty of this historical monument. However, you are allowed to view by boat and can get extremely close. If you’re looking to explore the history and heritage of Rajasthan, then the Jal Mahal is a must-visit. I strongly recommend taking a guided tour here for an enhanced experience. So you can listen to its rich history whilst taking in the spectacular views. The architecture and design will leave you in amazement! And its surrounded by the beautiful Nahargarh hills. So don’t forget your camera! There will be many scenic views to capture.
When is the best time to visit the Jal Mahal?
You can take a guided tour to the Jal Mahal whenever you wish. However, I’d personally recommend early evening as the sun sets. The view of the palace with a sunset lite lake really is magical! And the background behind the palace is beautifully lit as the sunset disappears into nighttime. You will fall in love with the ambience and views. And the best part? there are other historical sites very close by, such as Amber Fort, HawaMahal and City Palace. So if you can combine visiting the Jal Mahal with visits to all of these places. I would definitely recommend taking a guided tour which will take you to visit all four monuments in one day. The Jal Mahal is somewhere where you could stay all day. Once you’ve moved around the palace on the boat and took in all the views, you’ll be ready to move on.
