    Jaipur City Palace
    This is one of the must visit place for tourist when at jaipur. You can cover this place with jantar mantar & Hawa mahal. Its just 5 min walk away. Also within the vicinity of Shopping market. Overall this is learning of history for all. Its place used from 16th century till date it has prince staying in it with his family. Thus one of the attraction to be covered with all other. Need not specially plan as it will hardly take 30 min - 1 hr. Tickets are 300rs per person which i feel is too high.

    More than just a palace
    The palace of Jaipur is still occupied by the royal family, however it’s a large site so there’s still plenty to see. It’s close to the astronomical observatory so they can be visited on the same trip. Once you pass through the ornate gatehouse you are in a large square with many of the buildings terracotta colour. The pair of huge silver vases which the maharaja took to England holding sacred water from the Ganges are quite a sight. As are the magnificently attired guards who are happy to pose for a price. There are various courtyards to explore and a couple of museums in the palace. The military museum has lots of interesting various arms, and the art gallery is also good. No pictures allowed in either. Well worth a visit.

    Too costly
    Very costly as compared to other Indian palaces. A private enterprise hence not that worthy. However peacock door, weapon gallery and some part of palace is really good. But cost spoils the fun.

    This palace evokes the golden age of the maharajas
    In order to keep the lights on, the prince of Rajasthan has opened up his palace for viewing. You pass through spacious courtyards and fanciful open air structures. The building has few areas to hide from the sun, do plan your visit for earlier in the day.

    A Royal History
    This palace has amazing history. Make sure you take a guide to enjoy this place even more. There's a restaurant and a bar right inside the cafe for you to enjoy right after the tour. It is slightly on the expensive side though

    Highly recommend.
    This is quite pricey to enter compared to the other tourist attractions in Jaipur but I would recommend going. Think courtyards, gardens, buildings, an interesting museum, a bazaar and more. I really enjoyed exploring the impressive City Palace. So much going on. Opposite Jantar Mantar so you can do both together. Suggest doing the City Palace first.

    Excellent tour, unexpected highlight of Jaipur visit.
    Excellent tour and highlight of Jaipur. We thought we’d only be in and out in an hour. We laid our entrance and went in with our mandatory guide. We toured the palace courtyard and saw a few palace rooms. Then we had tea on the courtyard terrace overlooking the palace at sunset. Guide was very knowledgeable and tour was very enjoyable. We also have some amazing photos of the beautiful palace. Well worth a visit if you’re in Jaipur.

    That Instagram photo in the blue room will cost you
    The regular visit does not include the most beautiful rooms (like the blue room you see on Instagram), for that you'll have to get yourself the Royal Tour (4000rps if I'm correct). The tour includes a guide (that you'll still have to tip at the end). They don't rush you through it though and since it's expensive, there are just a few people. The blue room is obviously not as blue as shown on Insta since everyone increased the colour profile of their photos. It's a nice room, and the other 2 are nice too. Up to you to decide whether it's worth the price.

    Vast and ornate - each room more beautiful than the one before it
    We really enjoyed our trip to the City Palace. I had no idea how huge it was until we kept going up floor after floor. Each room is ornately decorated with a different color scheme on each floor. The tile work, carpets, and architectural details were stunning. I especially liked the room with mirrors that looked like thousands of stars when a candle is lit.

The city palace of Jaipur has very limited spaces open to the public, like the textile gallery and the audience hall (where taking pictures is not even allowed), and some courtyards. The palace is located right across Jantar Mantar (an open-air astronomical museum), so one can easily visit both one after the other. The textile gallery has some royal garments and stuff on display, while the audience hall has some royal furniture and paintings. Across the textile gallery is a building where paintings, clothes, and other products are sold. A visit to other rooms in the palace is not included in the general admission fee and, thus, has to be paid separately.

Yesterday, I visited the City Palace of Jaipur and had a fantastic time. The palace is stunning with its beautiful architecture and vibrant colors. I loved exploring the different rooms, museums, and galleries filled with amazing artifacts. The view of the city from the palace was breathtaking. It was a great day, enjoying the rich history and royal charm of Jaipur.

City Palace of Jaipur visit karna ek memorable experience tha. Palace ki grandeur aur history bahut inspiring thi, intricate carvings aur opulent courtyards se bharpur. Mubarak Mahal aur Chandra Mahal ke through walk karte hue mujhe laga jaise main time travel kar raha hoon. Museum mein royal artifacts, weaponry aur garments dekhne laayak the. Mera favorite tha stunning Peacock Gate, jisme vibrant colors aur detailed design thi. Palace se city ka view breathtaking tha. Agar aap Jaipur mein hain, toh City Palace zaroor dekhiye!

There’s not much to see here to be honest, if you buy the 1000 INR ticket (that was listed on the website as 700 INR)

Maybe better if you buy the 4000 INR ticket but that’s extortionate when compared to the Taj

Save your money!

Must visit for any tourist, is of extreme historical importance and still has the former royal family residing in parts of the palace off limits for general public.

Avoid during summer afternoons as can get extremely hot to walk outdoors without any shade in the large open sections of the palace.

The museum shops are well curated and carry some interesting curios to shop for.

I was completely blown away by the beauty and majesty of the City Palace in Central Jaipur. When yiu see films and documentary films about lavish Indian palaces with beautiful colours, intricate decor and exotic artwork, this place was exactly that.
It was the first thing f we visited upon arrival into the city and I don't know why, but my expectations were not overly high. I guess because ai didn't know much about the place.
But my goodness what a surprise. It is magnificent. The guided tiurcwas excellent, really informative, but what ainloved mose was just wandering around inside marvelling at the courtyards, buildings, palaces, halls and statuary.
What an utter, utter gem.

Beware of being hassled for tips from everyone who works here, they clearly see tourists as easy money in this city. Non stop hassle from start to finish and then to be charged £40 to spend less than an hour looking at the repainted blue room was an absolute rip off. My advice would be save your time and money and visit Udaipur

We had a great experience going around the palace with this lady guide Uma Devi. She was like a refreshing breeze of fresh air. With a male dominated society she came across knowledgeable, humble and full of dignity and pride. She ensured the Rajput culture was not compromised and still be that independent woman. Proud of You Uma Devi. You are an example of a true Indian woman who is independent at the same time, not compromising on our Indian culture and traditions.
