We had our own guide for this palace as it was done as part of a longer city tour. There's lots to see here and some of the detail in the architecture is amazing. It was extremely busy, but we were still able to see all the points of interest. It's really interesting to see all the paintings of the... More

Jaipur's City Palace is mostly open to the public except for the main building (the tallest in the complex) which is the official home of the royal family. The buildings and exhibitions are all stunning.

i arrived in Literary festival week and they also put on staff guided tours for free. so I avoided the hard sell guides outside, paid my R500 and enjoyed the best 2 hour tour by a wonderfully informed outreach staff member who had studied history and added so much value. Its a must go and see, made brillant by the... More

The palace is a one time visit for Jaipur visitors. I used the audio guide at the palace but it was not very helpful as it has to be manually adjusted. I found it difficult to trace my location and accordingly play the audio guide. Also, the guide had very limited information which was not much useful. It is very... More

While the City palace is beautiful and has a great collection of clothes worn by the maharajas, it is fairly quickly seen. If You are only a short time in jaipur, go see the amer fort outside the City instead. The City palace is pretty small and in large parts closed to the public as the maharaja still lives there....

Don't pay the 2500 inr price to go into the palace, it really isn't worth the ridiculously high price. The views from the top are nice but can be seen from any tall building / hotel and the mirrored rooms are no better than others we have seen in the amber fort and other sites around Rajasthan. Visit the museum,... More

The City Palace is a must visit if in Jaipur. The audio guide is really helpful if you wish to save time. It directs you to the important parts and guides, if you are interested in architecture and culture on your own it could take more than 3 hours to explore the place.

A palace or a fort? It doesn't really matter but it is another large monument made up of many different buildings of varying uses. We enjoyed the costume displays and armory.
