The city palace of Jaipur is really a collection of a unique and beautiful pieces of art. It has so many things to see. Huge silver jar, the traditional old dresses, a lot of them.. The entry fee though is on higher end, the place is unique and can not be missed.

Wow.. Thats what will come out of mouth when you enter this place.. You need to read about this place in advance or hire a guide to be able to enjoy this visit.. Visited in September 2013.

Once we'd elbowed our way past the gauntlet of touts, we found ourselves inside this window into royal life during the Moghul period engaging. Built in the 18th Century by Maharaja Sawai Man Singh, an avid astronomer and astrologer, the palace features an elaborate outdoor observatory with a set of curving white marble ramps to fix the precise positions of...

This is made up of several buildings, part of which is still the official residence of the Maharaja. The Chandra Mahal palace now houses a interesting museum which includes weaponry & clothing. Diwan-I-Khas was a private audience hall of the Maharajas, a marble floored chamber - in there are two huge sterling silver Gangajali (silver jars). Apparently these jars, each... More

For entrance we have to pay 400rupees per person which I really don't mind but considering the state of the palace it was quite a let down. It was not properly maintained in my opinion. The walls are cracked here and there. The collections in the museums are okay not that impressive. Overall, it was a nice visit but with... More

Should not skip seeing this one during Jaipur tour. Hiring a guide is essential in order to understand the displays and the anecdotes. We did come across a good one who explained and showed around pretty nicely although we were tight on time because it was time for the palace to close for the evening. Given the steep ticket price...

Located in the centre of Town. This Palace consists of several buildings with great architecture. Part of it is still home to the Royal family. Still plenty to see and admire. A good guide is essential to understand the history and how the complex worked. This is a must see while in Jaipur.

The palace is like all the other palace though little smaller.. However what is nice to see is the museum which carries textiles, weapons etc which gives a good insight into the Rajistan history..

If you are short on time, I would skip this. The Amber Fort is far more impressive and feels more like a palace than City Palace. This one requires a separate ticket of 400Rs and I am not sure if I would do it again. There really isn't that much to see. There were some lovely painted entryways in an... More

It is located in the center of the city of Jaipur, When you enter the palace compound itself, a magnificent example of Hindu palace is obtained.The condition is significant and is largely visitable . There are two large vases of silver, listed by the Guinness Book of Records as the silver object largest in the world.
