You will get a wonderful experience about life style of Royal Family of Jaipur. The part where Royal family lives is not open to public. But other portion gives you a splendid experience of the rich life style. It is an experience of life time.

While visiting the "City Palace of Jaipur" your attention will be immediately caught by this awesome seven-storeyed building: "Chandra Mahal" or "Chandra Niwas", a palace surrounded by beautiful gardens and a lake. Here, on the upper floors and since 1732, the Kachawas Rajput Clan - the "Maharajah of Jaipur" and the Royal Family still live! The walls of "Chandra Mahal" are decorated with fine paintings, mirror works and floral ornaments. Its ceilings are richly adorned. On the ground floor, "The Maharajah Sawai Man Singh II Museum" displays carpets, manuscripts and other precious items from the Royal Family's collection. The private quarters are not opened for the public, but the Royal Family recently decided to offer tourists the possibility of visiting them! If you wish to visit the inner quarters, you may join their "Royal Grandeur Tour", including guided visits to "Chandra Mahal's" "Sukh Niwas" (the "Hall of Pleasures"), "Chhavi Niwas" (the "Hall of Images"), "Shobha Niwas" (the "Hall of Beauty"), "Sri Niwas" (the "Hall of Mirrors") and "Mukut Mahal" (the "Royal Temple" on the top floor). At only an extra fee of Rs. 2,500.00 per foreign national! If you miss it, you may regret forever! Enjoy!

If you are traveling to Jaipur, then you must come to the City Palace, and visit the Chandra Mahal. This Mahal was built by Maharaja Jai Singh II and later, renovations were done by his descendants. At present Chandra Mahal serves as the residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur (the descendants of Royal family of Jaipur). Hope this helps with your first visit.

This one of the must-seen places in Caipur. Especially the inner doors with the season context were very beautiful

Honestly, I thought 3000INR was way too much at the entrance of the City Palace for Chandra Mahal, but once I entered the rooms of this wing, I was stunned. One room is drenched in blue frescos, the other is covered with mirror work, a third comes alive with lamps and their reflections. A must must visit for those who love architecture, Truly worth the price as you have lesser crowds to deal with and have a guide with you through out. The tour is not rushed and you can take you own time.Loved every bit of the tour!

We were presented with options to visit the museum or the private quarters. The price was very steep 5,000 rupees ($100) for a couple - it was about the same price as tickets to Versailles so thought it would be spectacular - we got to visit just a just a few rooms and yes they were great but some restricted photographs - definitely nothing to compare to a visit to Versailles and a total rip off! We were expecting much more for the price and left feeling very disappointed.

$90 for two adults and you get a long walk up an unlit ramp, see three rooms and have a Pepsi. Most of the palace was off limits to tourists, something we found out about half way through the tour. If what you like on your vacation is the feeling of having been ripped off, this is the place for you.

We visited The City Palace Museum paying 700 rupees each . On entering the complex We were surprised to learn that the 700 rupee fee did not get entrance to the Chandra Mahal. This was an additional 3500 for full access or in excess of 50 usd, almost three times the cost of entrance to the stunning Taj Mahal. So for a family of three it would have cost us more to view this one attraction than the cost of our train journey from Delhi to Agra plus a car journey from Agra to Jaipur. Hard to see how the cost is justifiable.
