The Jal Mahal is situated 8 miles north of Jaipur, the pink city of Rajasthan. This palace can be listed under one of the advantages of visiting India during the monsoon season. Why? Because only when it rains abundantly does the Man Sagar lake fill up and the Jal Mahal seems to float on the water. This beautiful palace was built in the 18th century under the orders of Madho Singh I. The architects and builders of the monument took as reference the spectacular Lake Palace of Udaipur. The result was more than satisfactory.
