The City Palace which was the seat of the Maharaja of Jaipur, is now a museum. The Chandra Mahal palace is a museum where the clothing, armory, paintings and weapons of the kings are displayed. The highlight of Chandra Mahal is the beautiful peacock gate at the entry to the Mahal. But the greatest part of the City Palace is... More

This palace of the Jaipur monarchy is built with so much of vision and precision, we truly must visit and promote this to more and more tourists..

This is a review of the Royal Grandeur Tour which is a City Palace separate entrance fee of 2,500 Rs. The tour takes about 45 mintues. I don't often post reviews, but this was such a disappointment and there are so few first-hand reviews online that I felt it was important to share. I do not recommend this tour. I... More

You have to see it. It is unbelievable! You will feel like you were transported back to the time of Maharaja. The royal family still lives there.

A Palace which is now a museum displaying all the clothing, paintings and weapons of the kings. Artists still display and sell their paintings. The Royals still reside here and some parts are out of bounds and photos not permitted for this reason.

Beautiful architecture and wall painting make every palace of jaipur a must visit but there is a lack of maintainance and overly priced entry tickets for indian visitors.

We have rented a car for the day and took us to the City Palace, the fee was 500 rupees each, you can rent the headphones for the tour guide for only 100 rupees, we didn't do it. Once you enter you have a gift stores with nice selection, however you can find exactly the same and cheaper outside the... More

A must visit. You can miss the others if you visit this place. You could spend two days in this place, as there is so much to see. If you can get a good tourist guide, I would advise this so that they can explain everything. There is a coffee shop, very good rest room facilities that you need to... More

These are places you have to visit while in this area. The workmanship of caving painting and inlay work is beautiful. They are all very similar if you have limited time I would still visit here.

We paid Rs2500 each for the entry to the royal palace section, which covers 7 floors. There are some very nice rooms, including the honeymoon suite where the multitude of tiny mirrors on the ceiling are little by candle light and look like stars twinkling in the night sky. The Divali room is also impressive with coloured stones set in... More
