If you like museums and appreciate chraftmanship u will like it here. 50 percent u will need a guide next 50 requires your time and understanding as everthing is displayed like a museum.

Compared to other palaces in Rajasthan this one is pretty average but almost twice as expensive. Very disappointed and wouldn't recommend to anyone who's interested in getting their monies worth.

The City Palace is an interesting place in Jaipur. It'll take you 3 hours to fully appreciate the whole place. Every corner of this palace is worth the visit: I really appreciated the rooms where all the weapons are kept and pay a close look to all the Indian doors which show the Indians' skills in wood work. There is... More

Plan on spending half a day. It might be good to go with a guide for the mandatory hour or two, then leave him and go back to more fully "examine" what you rushed by with him!

Its a very huge palace .There are various tools, clothes and cannon you can see inside this palace. There is a museum inside the palace. Good to view in winter season.

This is a truly lovely Palace - you will not stop clicking photos. So much to see architecture wise. One word of warning - take time over your choice of guide. I wish I had just taken the recorded/headphone guide as the human one we hired was absolutely atrocious - I am not prone to hysterical language in reviews but... More

The maharaja still lives in the palace part of which is now in Government hands as it is now a country without royalty. The palace is worth seeing as it gives you a flavour of how they used to live and still do in their private area. Go and see it just to understand the history.

Not really much to see for that high entry fee. Still cameras are included, that's nice, but than there is only one spot, where you are allowed to use it. In general in the city palace are more offices and shops than things/attractions to see. That's really poor.

The experience in getting inside the palace and watching every small and minute object carefully, has really been a wonderful experience. Guys, please never forget to take a snap of it.

There is so much to see at the City Palace that you really need have time on your hands to see it all. The Armoury exhibition seemed to be the most popular attraction and you could barely move for the crowds. The Art Gallery was a feast for the eyes, and other exhibits could hold your interest for hours.
