This is a place full of history, incredibly charming and just too good to be missed. Following the tracks of amazing people like Gayatri Devi is a real privilege ... An absolute must when visiting Jaipur

It is a well maintained museum. Large and grand courtyard with old cannons look great. You can learn about kings of Jaipur.

This did not live up to our expectations. Not a huge amount to see although there was a little puppet show going on the courtyard.

Compared to the beauty of the forts in Jaipur, this Palace is nowhere a 'must-see'! It is a museum with very little displayed for the tourists. The entrance ticket price doesn't justify whatever is inside.

It all starts riding an elephant up, visiting the very interesting palace and departing by jeep. The first place to visit in your tour to Jaipur.

Not better than the City Palace of Udaipur but the beauty of this palace too will captivate you. Big verandahs, royal meeting halls of the rajas and some pretty bagghis at the entrance that will allure you. Must visit if you visit Jaipur.

It is not well maintained. The entrance is not neat, and the paint is peeling off from the palace. I would not count this as a tourist attraction. We need to take a cue from palaces in other countries like Bangkok, spruce up this and maintain it better. This will increase tourist revenue as well.

Though entry tickets for Chandra Mahal are expensive, it is still worth a visit. Normal entry tickets for just the outer courtyard, ofcourse is cheap, but does not allow a person to see the grandeur inside. Undoubtedly the grandest palace in Jaipur, with its famous silver jars, Crafts museum, textile museum and miniature paintings. A must see while in Jaipur
