A Palace worth a watch , nice display but very little area is open for public . Its very far off from the city and one feels that after coming so far at least there should have been more to see and explore . Museum is very small

This is just a tick box on a list of things to see in Jodhpur and unless you are staying here the museum is the only thing you can visit.

This is yet another spot which is so adorable. Once you are their into the Palace, one can feel the richness & the royal life the King had lived there. It is one of the most heritage sight that I have seen so far!

The Palace is quite far from city centre, the Complete Palace is quite huge, but the disappointing fact was only may be 1/20th of the area only is open for public to visit. However the Heritage cars in the garden is attaracting the visitors attention.

Absolutely stunning and every minute of the visit was awe-inspiring. From the beginging we were escorted by a turbaned person whose was the 3rd Generation working for the Jodhpur Royalty, He took us around meticulously and patiently explaining every single item in the palace. Truly and amazing morning spent.
