A palace in the middle of a lake, Jal Mahal stands or rather floats proudly in the city of palaces, Jaipur. Renovation at regular intervals helped this palace to overcome the ageing process. Jal Mahal was converted to a luxury hotel and hence was not accessible to tourists, but I was told that this palace is now open to public. During my trip (August 2014), I didn’t bother to cross the lake to view the interiors of Jal Mahal.

This palace is en route Amber fort. I insisted the Autowallah to stop at this place once more during the return journey from the fort. A second visit was a good idea as I witnessed the hunting skills of this Cormorant 🙂
