Jal Mahal
 

The picturesque Jal Mahal alias Water Palace, situated 6.5 kms from the city on the road to Amber is noted for its intricate amalgamation of Rajput and Mugal stlyle of architectural design. This red sandstone palace set amidst the Man Sagar lake and the Nahargarh hills was built by Sawai Pratap Singh in 1799 A.D for royal duck shooting parties. The first four floors of the palace is under the water of the lake and only the top floor remains above the water level. Jal Mahal has richly molded and gracefully carved balconies and arched roofs. The main attraction is its terrace garden enclosed by arched passages and at each corner, there is a semi-octagonal tower capped by an elegant cupola. A causeway from the main land, leads to this extremely romantic palace. Jal Mahal offers a picturesque view of the surrounding Man Sagar lake and the Nahargarh Fort. The lake is an ornithologist's paradise and a favourite haunt of migratory birds.
