#2 of 35 in Museums in Jaipur
Smack dab in the middle of the old town core, City Palace of Jaipur plays home to a royal residence and blends a fusion of architectural styles. Explore the expansive palace complex, built with distinctive pink sandstone and white accents, to see its intricate network of verandas, courtyards, meeting halls, and other rooms. You'll see elements of classic Indian, Mughal, European, and local Rajput construction techniques throughout, a result of the many additions to the palace since its origins in the late 1720s. Don't miss popping into the art gallery inside the public audience hall, as it features an array of centuries-old scriptures and other works of art from the region. Alternatively, visit the armory for a look at one of the nation's finest collections of historic weaponry.

  • Wonderful 😍😍 Yes it is the palace where you can actually see how royal kings live their gorgeous life. The cost of the visit is little high but it's totally worthy because it includes so many things and if you want visit city palace properly you will need a whole day. here you will get all the royalty and it feels like you are the king or queen of this beautiful kingdom.
  • Beautifully built and maintained palace in the heart of pink city! I was amazed to how big it was and right in middle of markets and how nicely maintained ! Crowded all times of the day at its in center of city , but it has some beautiful doors to click your pictures with! Kids will love having the chance to take a chariot ride inside the palace ! It has many kind of entertainment inside for tourist! I loved my time here !
  • Very nice private palace belonging to the former ruling family of Rajasthan. There are some nice/well decorated rooms and hall and very nice painting. The guided tour is good but I find the price exaggerated knowing that you get one guide for the whole group but you pay for each. 1 star less because you cannot take a picture of the nice hall giving on the main garden
  • A state of art palace, every inch is a piece of art. The architecture, the paintings, the design all are fabulous. The well preserved artifacts of the Maharajas so beautiful. Not to miss the art gallery where people still do the same old designs and hand paintings. I love it. It is a wonderful place for photo sessions.
  • Amazing visit to the Palace!! One of the most well kept palaces in our country. We had taken the Royal Grandeur Tour which costs rs. 3000 per person ticket which let's you see the inner palace where the royal family still resides with a guide to explain you all the rooms and the importance of them all. You are obviously not allowed in the parts where the family is currently residing but can see the other parts of the palace which the kings before the current prince used to live in. When in Jaipur this is a must visit! And if possible do take the complete tour to see the whole palace.
