Nice place

If you stay in Jaipur you have to go here and see the history of the city palace. It is in the pink city and a nice place to be for one hour.

India has no shortage of monuments and palaces. Rajasthan especially does not have a shortage of beautiful palaces to visit. I think that the City palace is a poorly executed tourist destination. For the entrance fee you pay, you are not even allowed to see a good chunk of the palace where the best architecture is, and history lurks inside.... More

This a palace of one of the ex rulers of Jaipur. There is a museum in the palace where you can find old attire of the Royal family which is worth seeing

It is a great place but not as amazing as the amber fort and really expensive. The museums are interesting and you should go in them.

Rajasthan is known for its architectural beauty and with all these places to visit, you will never go bored of visiting each of these palaces. every one of them has its unique offering. Just a note of caution, take the audio guide if you want to scroll around in your own pace and enjoy the minute details.
