Explore Jal Mahal in Jaipur

Jal Mahal

The Jal Mahal is a splendid palace standing amidst the tranquil Man Sagar Lake, known as the “Water Palace”. Its construction in the 18th century was initially intended as a hunting lodge for the king and his entourage, but the palace has now become a famous tourist attraction in Jaipur. With its symmetrical pink sandstone design, the Jal Mahal exudes classic Rajput architecture.

Many tourists visit the palace from the banks of the lake, but not everyone is aware of the technological innovations and designs that went into building this ancient structure. The palace appears to have only one floor, but beneath the surface, there are four more submerged levels, showcasing the exquisite design and engineering of its time. The stone walls were constructed to hold back millions of litres of water, while the specially designed lime mortar prevents water seepage into the palace, a feat that has lasted for more than 250 years.
