The city palace jaipur is one of the main attractions for tourists. The area outside the entry is absolutely dirty with stagnant water and cow dung. The line for buying the entry tickets is long - why can't they have more counters? The palace itself is beautiful but the buildings that you enter are hot and stuffy - no ventilation,... More

To be honest, the palace did not impress me very much. It doesn't have any grandeur which you associate in your mind with a 'royal place' - probably because it is not very well maintained. However it does have a lot of historical items, and makes for a good visit for history enthusiasts. Most of the palace has been turned... More

You have 2 sections open the Clothes & Textiles where you can see the Fashion & Trends of by gone Kings. Not to forget some were badly in need of Bariatric Surgery if the clothes are to be believed. Though I wish they would keep the items in better condition. Its worth a visit - but extremely boring for kids... More

This was my first visit to City Palace, and having read the memoirs of the Maharahi of Jaipur, it was really cool to see where the kings and queens lived (and still reside today). There is an armory and other historical tours in the inner parts of the grounds, as you meander through the outer parts. There was even a... More

I have spent good over an hour walking around different exhibitions. Arriving at 9 am I have avoided any crowds. It was a pleasant visit with interesting infotmation about royal life. It would be great to be able to take photos inside. From there I took a stroll around the markets of Pink City.

Had the opportunity of looking at the flag with the King being in and out of residency which was symbolised by another quarter of a flag. We visited on Janmasthami day which meant the city was very crowded and took us an hour to get out of the city. The palace itself is divided into various parts showing different aspects... More

This place is just behind Hawa Mahal in the market area of the Pink City. This is the official residence of royal family of Jaipur and the palace is maintained by a private trust instead of ASI. The palace is in pristine condition and has a wonderful museum inside. There are Audio guides available but they are not as good... More

The palace in the city is just as pretty as every other building here. We visited it in the afternoon and the pink colour lit by the evening sun made the whole place look glorious. Built in the early 18th century at the orders of the then king Raja Jai Singh, the Palace within the new city reflected both the... More

Nice place, really worth exploring. Audio guide gives too much tedious information and details about the kings, and describes things that you can actually see if you open your eyes
