Very average as cant view the whole palace but only a museum. Had a different expectation of visiting the entire palace which is not available for general public. Overall a disappointment as it was not worth expectation, but the palace from outside looks like a gem in its place. A huge palace with beautiful view, looks amazing.

Nice view of the Palace . Vintage cars collection is a good thing to see. The museum is large and well maintained. Worth a visit. It gives you an insight into the lives of Royal People.

A modern palace by historic Indian standards but magnificent. Definitely worth a visit. The collection offers a fascinating glimpse into the lifestyle of a 'technology-minded' Maharaja in the 1940's.

Very well kept. But we were disappointed that the part open to tourists is so small. The rest is the hotel that isn't open to the public. Limited photo opps if you like us like to take crazy pics everywhere. The museum is nice though. Tells you all about the place and the people. Its worth a visit.

The museum will take up 1hr max. of your time. The whole palace is converted to Museum(20%), hotel (50%) and then the rest for the royal family. The museum has largely photos of the royals, mostly new ones. Also some architecture details are present there, if you are interested.

Its a must visit in Jodhpur. The Palace is divided into sections - Taj hotel, museum, and the royal palace where the royalty is still living. The museum has antiques displayed and pictures of the royalty. There is a collection of vintage cars on the display as well across the palace. The view from the palace gate and drive is... More
