If I have to pick a favourite place in my hometown, Pink City Jaipur, then Jal Mahal will be a straight choice. No other nominations!
I’ve spent countless hours, doing nothing there. The peace at that place is endless. I’ve been there during the night, daytime, and the evenings are countless.
Jal Mahal Jaipur
It’s a historical fort, located between a water lake, named Man Sagar Lake. The water isn’t always fresh, but it’s clean enough to stay odour free. Water isn’t the only thing that fort is surrounded by, as one can also notice the mountain ranges and greenery around (not during the Summer). When looked close, one can also spot the verge of the city.
I’m not even going to attempt to describe how beautiful and peaceful this place is. I’m sorry, it is beyond my writing capabilities!
You can look at the pictures and give it a try.
The place is easily accessible by public transport. There is enough space to park your personal vehicles.
A decent crowd is always there during the evening which gets better on weekends. Local sellers bring their handicraft items to sell and set their remote shops nearby.
Other than just sitting there for hours, and looking at the water, watching birds, walking at the shore flying and grabbing their prey, is my personal favourite.
If you don’t feel like walking, a camel ride is available as an alternative, which is a prime attraction among foreigners.
If you’re a tourist in Jaipur, then visiting Jal Mahal is a must. You can easily get it covered in a package as the fort is near other prime attractions of Pink City, i.e., Amer Fort, Nahargarh Fort, and Jaigarh Fort.
If you’re new to the city, and looking for a place to spend time with your family or partner, then Jal Mahal is super recommended from my side. You can also have street food items from the local shops available around the place.
The best time to visit Jal Mahal is during the evening. If you like running or going for a walk, then you can join hundreds of other enthusiasts in the morning. There is no entry fee for any person (even for tourists) and there is no need of any map.
Earlier, I also did a short trip from Jal Mahal, Jaipur to India Gate, New Delhi.
