I was expecting much more. The palace is full of artifacts that you cannot take pictures of. The Weapon room was what I found the most interesting. More of a museum than anything. Still a cool stop and worth a look if you have the time.

Constructed during 1729-1732, under the supervision of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the City Palace has minute detailing. Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal comprise major portions of this... More

Good place to visit - we only took the museum ticket but there was plenty to see. Lots of displays of textiles and clothing and sumptuous royal surroundings. Clean toilets.

Though it's my second visit in a span of almost 8-9 years lots has improved. Audio guides were available this time so need not take a guide. Only issue with the audio guide the exhibits are not properly marked so pretty confusing. And the new features include small boutique shops around the palace.

Skip it and save your 2500 rupees. This opulent palace was the only stop on our visit to Rajasthan that felt like a tourist trap and a waste of money. Your money gets you a personal guide and a drink at the end, but still not worth it. Our guide, while friendly, had limited English and therefore wasn't really able... More

Really great place. I paid 500 RP, my girlfriend 300 RP as they accept NUS student cards. We used the audio tour that was to the point and informative. Best part for us was the crafts hall/friends of the museum. We bought a couple of small paintings and other things that we felt were of a high quality, and the... More
