apparently the family is fighting over the treasures in the palace and many are locked up. so, while this may have been very interesting in the past, it is not so interesting now.

The City Palace is located near the famed Pink City in Jaipur. It is a large palace "complex" that houses several components with grand architecture and elaborate design. Don't miss: The Armory, which is a museum dedicated to the arms and martial tools that Rajasthan's ruling Pachawa family used over three centuries. Then there's the textile/wardrobe section where you can... More

The City Palace is a well maintained palace of the ancient royals. A part of it is still retained for private residence by the erstwhile royal family, the rest of it has been converted into a well maintained museum. There are wonderful courtyards strewn around the palace, besides a textile museum and an armaments museum. Some medieval age buggies are... More

The city palace is partly occupied by the descendants of the erstwhile royal family, but the remaining is open to the public. The part occupied by the family is open to public but at a fairly steep price.

The City Palace is worth a visit - and even though the royal family still lives here, large sections are open to the public. The architecture is lovely, and the artwork, gates, sculptures and carvings are wonderful to see. I enjoyed the armory exhibition too.

The palace has beautiful architecture and a must for history lovers. I believe that the royal families still resides in the private area of the palace. The highlights of the palace includes... More
