“City Palace”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was the sight I liked visiting best in Jaipur. There was a lot to see and walk around; the architecture and decoration is beautiful and there is a lot of history to learn about. You could see people working on the upkeep of the Palace and some of the displays are really interesting like the largest silverware in the world and the paintings on display in the main hall where important events would take place. When we visited there was a band of traditional musicians playing outside which was really good and added to the whole experience.

“Beautiful palace though entry is a little costly compared to many other sites”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Date of Visit: 25th Mar 2013

Fees: 300 INR (adult entry - foreigner)

+ points:
(1) Very beautiful surroundings and buildings that is a bonus for photo enthusiasts (e.g. Pitam Niwas Chowk with beautiful arches and a grand looking building).

(2) There is a dance performance in the central area (Sarvatobhadra Chowk) which is quite interesting and occurs quite frequently (I think maybe once every 15 minutes?)

- point:
(1) The Bagghi Khana area (collection of cars) wasn't really impressive, especially when I've been to the Sudha Cars Museum in Hyderabad.

(2) By far the most expensive attraction I've visited in India.

“Very interesting palace”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Lovely architecture and painting. Free to roam about half of the palace however the rest is closed off to the public. Worth a visit.

“If you are visiting Jaipur, you must visit.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Wonderful palace. The royal family is now running that. So, the tickets may sound a little costlier than the government maintained monuments but once you visit there, you will feel nice about your investment. It's a miniature Jaipur, apart from the marvelous palace, it showcase different forms of Rajasthani cultures (musicians, puppet shows etc).

“City Palace @ Jaipur”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

It was a great fort, but having seen Amer it dulls in comparison. Although it had a private area - so I guess the Royal family still occupies a part of the palace. The armory was the most impressive with the different types of knives, swords & armors. The swords with bullets or daggers with bullets were the most interesting. City Palace has a cafe - alright food if a little on the higher side.

There is a government shop nearby for Rajasthani handicrafts, textile, jewellery. Jantar Mantar is closeby too.

Entry fee - 75 per person plus 75 for camera.
