This is huge property but has three parts. One is used by king to live. Another part is converted in Hotel and third part is kept as museum for public. People ar not allowed to access other part of palace than museum. Collection of vintage cars is only attraction tourist I guess.

famously known as one of the world's largest private residences, this is a place you ought to visit to come across the magnanimity and grandeur of the royals of those time..and still being habitated by the royals it has been maintained upto its reputation. the historical journey of the dynasties and their lifestyle is an absolute awe..

The sheer vastness of the palace was mind-blowing. It is beautifully built and visually appealing. A must see.

A huge castle built by a wealthy man to glorify his family! Hearst castle is a good comparison. They allow you to see photos and some furniture and a clock collection and to wander around some gardens and see some of their expensive cars!

We enjoyed this fascinating collection of the Jodhpur royal family and the history of the building of the Umaid Bhawan Palace - such a gift to the people of Jodhpur.

The palace museum is not as great as other museums in Rajasthan. It may be because the royal family still lives there on another side. The surroundings are kept neat, the palace is situated on a hilltop. Only one hour is required to cover this place. There is a display of vintage cars just opposite to the palace building.

As shown in the pic you won't be able to visit the whole palace as only museum area has been kept open for tourists. Museum has a wide range of antique cars from British era, and is treat for your eyes. In other part of the palace the property belongs to Taj hotel and only customers are allowed over that... More
