One of the newly built palaces in India, the structure is grand and elaborate. Sad part is that the major portion has been converted into a hotel so all you get to see is a museum built in about 5-6 rooms. Some of the memorabilia on display is interesting. Outside the museum is a vintage car collection which is worth... More

To begin with, you probably know that most of this Palace is a hotel, so ... don't even think of a comparison with the other attractions like Amer Fort, Hawa Mahal, Mehrangarh! But that said, it's still worth a visit, for the very interesting collections inside the Palace Museum. I walked up to the Palace, and would advise travellers to... More

The museum adjoining the Palace hotel is a place to visit for sure. It has an extremely detailed historical display in pictures and artefacts of the royal family and has a beautiful garden around. Enjoy the history as well as the natural setting of this place. You could even walk into the adjoining Taj hotel for a cup of coffee... More

Words are not enough to describe this palace. It is probably one of the last palace to be made in this world. The sad part is they do not allow visitors in the section run as a hotel. The current maharaja of jodhpur H H Gagsingh still loves in one part of the place. The section open to the public... More

the largest private residence in the world, the finest extant example of art-deco, the only palace to have painting from the Ramayana painted by a Polish artist, the first to use air-conditioning, electricity and elevators, and the most impressive for its size and dimensions. Royal Guards will guide you to the entire palace. This one having a very good collection... More

This is part of the Umaid bahwan palace hotel (palace converted to hotel). It has all the stuff used by the royal family of Jodhpur. The collection is excellent and the history of the family is also interesting . Do try out the kulfi available outside the museum.
