The palace itself looks quite lovely, but from what I understand its divided into three parts. First is where the current prince stays and off limits. The middle section is a hotel run by Taj, also kind of off limits unless you're staying there or have a reservation of some sort. And the final section of the palace is the... More

The architecture is simply awesome and the ambience of the entire area is too good. Don't forget to visit the unique collection of clocks. At the time of watching the antique cars try to capture the entire building.

The vintage cars were perhaps the best part of the visit. Perhaps my expectations were too high though. The museum is only a small part of the actual palace, the rest being part Taj Hotel and part royal residence. What was on show was beautiful however, so I'd allow about 90 mins for the visit.

What is open to public... More

This European palace could be moved to Vienna and fit right in. Grand and beautiful, it left me somewhat indifferent, mostly because it is nearly empty, and only a small part of it is open to the public. The rest is a hotel for very rich people.

Went in December and it was crowded. Nice gardens, semi-interesting museum. See the outside...the rest is meh. The hotel next door looks impressive.

This fort was got constructed by King Umaid Singh in the era of Indian Independence and at that time it costed around Rs 9.4 million. There is very small portion of huge palace which is opened for tourists, rest is opened as high end luxurious restaurant and hotel. This place requires around 1-2 hour for exploration.
