Well with over 2000 reviews I again wonder what I can say further. Frankly the city palace is a legacy that shows the style in which the Jaipur royal family stayed and still do. With all the vintage carts and cars on display along with armoury, it is an opulent visual treat. A guide is a must to understand the... More

Although not a big museum but quite interesting to see the clothing and textiles worn by the royal families and household items, nice rooms where the families used.

The city palace of Jaipur has a good textile museum which is a collection of royal clothes, fabrics and children wear. The diwan-e-khas has been well maintained and also the 4 ornate doors in the palace should not be missed. A real good part of the museum can be seen by paying additional amount, approx additional INR 2000. Not really... More

The city Palace is still occupied by the royal family of Jaipur. It was interesting to see and see the history of the family.

Overreacted place. Only highlight was Armory room and Deewane e Khas. highly commercialized place. Textile museum should not spend time.

The City Palace in Jaipur is just a stone's throw from Jaipur's other attraction, Jantar Mantar. It is a privately owned palace, owned by the current Maharaja of Jaipur. The approach is fairly cluttered, and when you enter the main portico, what assails you immediately is the sense that something is wrong. The palace grounds are given over to private... More

This palace was built by the amazing Maharaja Sawaii Jai Singh II the forward thinking Mughal King of the early 1700's. There are still family members of his succession living there. Jaipur is the capital of Rajastan. Later kings added to the palace.

City palace Jaipur is worth time spending place. Make sure to book a guide. Maximum price: 300. It will give the detail picture of Jaipur Royalties and associated Kings. We started with costumes and apparel section of Sawai Raja Man Singh I and II etc. They are all Royal Luxury dress. Do not miss the craft shop and meseum. It... More
