There are two main areas here. The one where you walk in will have all the tour guides offering you paid tours and a museum which you should get free entry to when you buy your ticket (you get two attached to a postcard). I thought the end of the museum was really interesting because it talks about sports and games that India invented, while the start is just about clothes.

The second area is a man open building with some rooms off to the right and left, and when I was there the day before Holi there was a performance, which was really fun to watch. I hope it is there all the time and was not just for Holi.

Part of palace which is open to public. Not everything is as interesting. My recommendation in order of prefernce: 1) Textile (bad choice of name, actually there are beautiful clothes of generations of ruling family) 2) Weapons exhibition 3) Regalia - if you never saw highest british ordens decorations from distance of some inches. Gallery of portraits and silver chairs there are also nice.
The main attractions - huge silver urns used for transportation of holy Ganges water to king Edwards' coronation (enough for maharaja's bathing, eating and drinking for whole journey) - you will see anyway

Every city has their Palace, this is Jaipur's, no more/no less. I particularly liked and remember the Four Doors representing the Four Seasons (mind you my memory could be a bit hazy on the exact details). It's not a fort, but a smaller compacted Palace. Enjoyable trip. Avoid midday for the heat. Morning or afternoon is lovely for a stroll through and the info (audio tour, guide or written plagues) allow you to understand the traditional use of this structure.

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.
