Got here as soon as it opened and had the place virtually to ourselves for 30mins - bliss! As soon as coaches arrived it was very busy. Worth a visit- could do it without guide as there's labels / info written in English on items to see and the audio guide is good. Allow about 60 - 90mins. Observatory is... More

Do visit the palace even if you are "palaced out". Interesting and again an unexpectedly large complex within the city. We did not use a guide as we like to investigate on our own.

I never saw such a fantastic royal living. The City Palace of Jaipur, a residance of former HH Jaipur Late Brig. Bhawani Singh is a dream of all visitors of pink city. Beautiful with royal arcticture palace having a 5star restaurant for visitors.

I didn't realize until I finished the tour that the Chandra Mahal cost a hefty additional fee (Rs 2500!) - so was a bit disappointed by that. Do take the audio tour here -it's only Rs80 and very informative. I'm not big on armor (my husband would have loved that) but otherwise the buildings, clothing, silver jars etc were all... More

I am not a very museum kind of person but must say it is an interesting place to visit. It was part of our package from tour company. Visit is worth and value for money.

This is a lovely palace, but isn't included in the combined ticket that includes Jantar Mantar and some other sights. If you are in a hurry, or don't want to pay another entrace fee, skip the City Palace and concentrate on the combined ticket sights.
