Jal-Mahal, Jaipur (Rajasthan, India) - The lone palace in the lake



Jal Mahal is one of the popular destinations in Jaipur ( Capital city of Rajasthan). Although it's not allowed to go till Jal Mahal, but it's a beautiful place to take a halt when going towards Amer Fort from Jaipur town. Above photograph shows the view of Jal Mahal from distant garden located on one side of the road, which leads to Amer fort. 

There are small gardens around the road where you can spend some time and see this beautiful palace from a distance. Not sure about current state, but have seen this palace under renovation for many years. 

Photographers across the world have clicked some phenominal photographs of Jal Mahal, including some of the award winning night shots. Jal Mahal is basically located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake. The palace and the lake around it were enlarged by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Amber. Hills behind the lake are Aravalli hills, dotted with temples and ancient forts...
