The City Palace, near the Jantar Mantar area, is a very intriguing and fun site from a tourists perspective. The palace has 5-6 blocks that one can visit. The armoury on the first floor is a must visit.

Great for a photo op. We didn't do too much more than that but were impressed with the information given to us by our guide and were happy we went to see it.

After visiting Udaipur's City Palace,we didn't find Jaipur Palace much intriguing,But every palace in Rajasthan is worth visiting,especially for history lovers . It takes you back in time ,you get to see charm of old India.. In this palace, you get to witness old architecture ,weapon collection,and many more things used by royal family.,

The palace is maintained well in some parts, but, some parts deserve better care (posters of Bollywood films mar the ambiance somewhat). Overall, it is not comparable... More
