Beautiful building, the water urns used to take river water to London in the 19th Century are incredible.

Of course you can take photos outside and in public areas but there were so many signs prohibiting photography in its various rooms that I did start to wonder why I had my camera with me. I appreciate that the idea is to sell postcards and, in some cases, they will be better than your own snaps but, with respect,... More

We visited the city palace at the end of a day of sight-seeing at the Amber fort.

I enjoyed this very much. Great information on the past rulers of Jaipur and the development of the cities status in the state of Rajasthan.
