This palace was very nice. The displays of historical items and the glimpse into history was fascinating. I had a guided tour and felt that the attraction was enhanced as I wouldn't have researched prior to my visit here. Worth a visit and I recommend the Palace.

We had a guided walking tour of the Palace, and discovered that the King was actually there when we arrived (his personal flag was flying). The Palace is an well preserved reminder of days gone by and the history of the Kings of Jaipur. The collections and rooms are well worth the visit!

At the ticket desk all of the entry fees say that they include being allowed to take pictures with a non-tripod camera. We were having a nice time and taking photos but when leaving the indoor grand room the security guard demanded to see our phones and cameras and said we had to pay a 500 rupee fine for every...

All the buildings are richly decorated and all deserve your attention. One of the inner courtyards for instance, has four small gates that are lavishly decorated with ideas to represent the four seasons. The Peacock Gate (totally amazing) represents autumn, the Lotus Gate summer, the Green Gate spring and the Rose Gate winter, and each is a minor work of... More

The palace is still lived in, so you can only visit some of it. The museum has interesting items of polo clothing, Maharaja clothing and armoury. There are two enormous silver pots that the Maharaja used to carry water when travelling.

Actually after visiting City Palace, Udaipur the city palace of Jaipur to me is a bit disappointing. Except the two silver jars there is nothing extra-ordinary in the palace.

City Palace is one of the most beautiful palaces in India. The most likable thing about this is it’s awesome architecture & the museum. These intricate works of art in this museum add life and colour to this palaces uniqueness. Diwan-i-Aam, the Hall of Public Audience, is a marble floored chamber located between the armoury and the art gallery are... More
