Don't waste your money on the audio guide, one of ours didn't work, and in any case it wasn't at all informative for what we paid. We were bored, as it felt more of a history museum with collection of swords and guns than a grand palace. The best part was the traditional Rajasthani staff who were very nice and... More

Good piece of history. We liked the painting and artifacts being sold in the premises. They should have some rule for maintaining low price as they charge you heavily. The same thing is available outside at half the price.

the king of Jaipur does it in style, and him allowing us into his residence is a welcome addition in Jaipur. it doesnt take to long to walk around and get a feel for it but not attending it will make you feel like you've missed out on a main attraction.

The building itself is beautiful but it is well laid out with museums around every corner. Make sure to get an audio guide it makes the visit much more pleasurable. The museum themes vary from guns and weapons to clothes and textiles. I visited at midday and it was very hot, consider an earlier or later time.

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.

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.
