Visited this place in 2008, and I still have the memories of it. That tells how good a museum this is. The palace, the collection, one can spend more than 4 hours in this place without getting bored (maybe tired). Hit this place for sure if you are visiting Jaipur.

The City Palace is a large palace complex located in the historical center of Jaipur. The palace was built in 1729 - 1732 during the reign of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II with additions coming from future Majas. Besides the palace, there are also museums, courtyards and an iconic clock tower. Quite interesting and quite impressive.

Must have been amazing in its day but getting a bit tired and worn now. Hope it is preserved before it's too late. Lots of walking and a bit of imagination required to appreciate it but worth a visit.

This is one of the several palaces of the erstwhile rulers of Jaipur which is open to public for visitation. The museum within is worth a see as it houses some rare objects.

I personally enjoyed the Palaces of Jodhpur, Udaipur and Amber more. But this one has a great view and some beautiful interiors. The sheesh mahal is nice :)

It a very good place, sculptures are really awesome.. Everyone should visit it while in Jaipur. Its very near to Jaipur Zoo.. So u can visit zoo also. Parking is a issue there. we have to wait for about half hour for park our vehicle. Even in warm weather the palace is cooler in inside. A must visit palace.
