Compared to the other sites in the Golden Triangle this place was kind of disappointing. Some ornate feature with two cool Silver Urns, kind of touristy but not in a good way. The place is broad and spread out, some decent photo opportunities but not enough for me to recommend it for anything but a very quick spin through. I... More

It is a good tourist place. Come prepared for a lot of walking & dirty lanes. Wish they were cleaner. Anyways, the moment u enter, its a different game. It is beautiful, clean and beautiful. History reflects in each corner. I am sure it will excite you to know more about the emperors and their lives. SO many dresses, weapons... More

Really beautiful with tons of stories and history. The palace is huge with many areas to visit. Having a guide explain the details and history was great but if you read up on the details you will be able to manage it yourself. Skip the elephant ride up to the top. I am sure the elephants are some what taken... More

A modern palace containing royal family history, the painting on doors are the main highlight of this palace. Others are very basic. You can see world's largest silver pot there. Quite relaxing place to visit.

You don't really get to see the actual palace. The weapons gallery and textiles gallery are cool and there's lots of artisans selling products but a bit over priced at 500rs / head

Its one of the main attractions of Jaipur. A must visit for all tourists. Neat & clean and the tourists are allowed to take photographs. Even professional photographers are there to click pics while entering & while exit you can pay & collect the pics. Optional not mandatory.
