This is the part of the royal palace that is open to the public (the royal family still resides in another part of it, although I understand that visits can be arranged to some of the rooms there too for a much steeper fee). Palace is in the heart of Jaipur and is easily combined in one day with the... More

A well cared for and a palace where the Maharaja still lives. It shows the grandeur of an age. It has three museums. The armory museum is extraordinary. Gives a glimpse of bygone days.

Do visit this place in winters. July is terrible when its not raining. Audio guides are a pain when its so hot. Liked the Gangajali pots...a treat to watch them live.

Centrally located and a very well maintained place with sm interesting things to see. Its recommended to take a guide so that you can get a better insight into the various artefacts / paintings, etc there. Shops within the complex sell local handicrafts & have sm interesting collection.

Apart from the architecture, the palace houses a huge collection from the bygone era comprising of royal clothing, armaments, paintings etc. The huge silver urns are an added attraction. The Royal history of Rajasthan continues even now and the City Palace is a nice place to explore that.

We booked the extensive royal tour ( although expensive, but it brought us to rooms we would not have seen otherwise.) The grandeur of this palace is just unbelievable: a Lalique dinning table and silver chairs; rooms with fabulous decorations, fountains, a pair of 2 huge silver jars, inner courtyards,…. Of all the palaces we visited in Rajasthan, we found... More

From the pictures of all the Maharajas to their lifestyles. It has all. A gate within a Gate. That's the beauty. I... More
