Being in India one is spoiled for choice of palaces and although this one was nice, it certainly isn't as impressive as some of the others in Rajasthan. That said, if you have a couple of days in Jaipur it's worth a stop. They have a good weapons collection and some nice artwork.

After seeing many palaces throughout India, this palace was nice to visit but has nothing overly special to say it was amazing. It was pleasant to walk through. I really liked seeing the clothing warn by several maharajas. Their is a large stately reception hall which had beautiful chandeliers. The draw card for photo opportunities would be the ornate doors... More

A busy palace now holding a range of exhibitions showcasing fabrics and weaponry amongst other things. Comparatively expensive but a enjoyable visit, and the audio guide is useful for explanations of the artefacts.

The Palace is truly worth a visit, but don't expect your socks to be knocked off. Mine weren't. There are some very good photo opportunities for sure ( I loved the peacock door and the other doors in the Pitam Niwas Chowk), but most of the palace remains inaccessible as it still residence to the royal family and feels therefore...

I liked seeing the City Palace and walking through the Moon Palace ...however...it was TOTALLY packed and crowded. Definitely worth a quick stop but I wouldn't want to hang around here forever.

It's a nice place to visit but not sensational and is quite expensive if you compare to other attractions. Go if you have time to spare.

It was the seat of the Maharaja of Jaipur. The Chandra Mahal palace now houses a museum but the greatest part of it is still a royal residence. The architects achieved a fusion of Rajput, Mughal and European styles of architecture

The City Palace is the Heart of the heritage pink City as Jaipur is called. It is great seeing how royalty lived in days gone by. The Palace has a few museums. One of weapons & armor was really interesting. The largest silver vessels in the world are also on display. One of the Maharajas carried water from the holy... More
