The palace is simply magnificent! The museum gives a glimpse into the life and times of the erstwhile rulers. Worth a visit for sure.

At an entry fee of INR 25 for locals and INR 60 for foreigners this Palace is worth every entrance rupee.

The palace is really well maintained and very luxurious. Very impressive from inside too. has a lot of history and all valuable info is at available across. you may not want to take a guide. only small issue is its proximity to the city center and lack of public transport. an auto charges minimum of Rs. 400 from old city.

A Palace every tourist to Rajasthan must visit. Part of the palace is a hotel & part has been converted to a museum. It depicts the splendour & glory of the Rajput maharajahs. The museum is well maintained & is worth a visit. The vintage car display outside the palace is also worth seeing

PArt of this palace is converted to hotel, one part is the residence of the king and one part is the museum. Take help of a guide who takes you to the history of the palace. The kings court, souvenir hall etc. are really worth exploring.
