History Museum
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. To visit City Palace of Jaipur on your trip to Jaipur, use our Jaipur holiday planner.

  • In the interior courtyard are the doors dedicated to the four seasons. All are different and appointed with semi precious jewels.  more »
  • A Palace full of treasures, every room, every corner is worth a visit. Everything very beautifully and artistically high-quality. There are many professional men who are offered as a guide at the entrance. When you're on the road without a tour guide, is worth a guide rent. Note that there is a little trap: the Touisten is carried to a sales Hall, where KAshmirschals and miniature painting at over-priced prices is sold. But also, there's a textile museum with a shop for exclusive fashion, where the prices are.

  • This is not at all a bad place to visit but it is quite overrated. It is well maintained. The tickets are available at rupees 135 and 2000. My suggestion would be not to go for 2000 rupees, its not at all worth. It is a good place to spend some time and click few beautiful pics.
  • Can be better if they treated it like a heritage monument which has played witness to do much history of the country. Places like these just seem like opportunities to fleece people rather than serving as an example of the nation's rich legacy. The best attractions are the weapons on display in the armoury. Unfortunately, the regressive thinking is the management prevents people from taking pictures here. In this age they actually need people to showcase the best parts of the monument so that more people are drawn to it.
  • This is a beautiful palace in the centre of Jaipur city. The rooms are in traditional Rajasthan palace architecture, which is really beautiful. There are various cultural shows for tourists at various times in this palace, including music and dance. There are also workshops for Rajasthani handmade paintings and handicrafts, visitors can view the workshops and see the craftsmen at their jobs.
  • Disappointing. Not much to see for the basic ticket unless paying 5 tes more to see inside. Guards are pushy asking you to take them a picture and then tip. Last room is the throne. No clear evidence photo is not allowed. You take one. Nobody says anything while you obviously take a photo. Then when leaving, they ask you to show your pictures and give you a 500 INR fine! Easy money...
  • A must visit to the palace, though slightly on the expensive side. Be careful of the ticket you purchase, the palace tickets are for Rs. 2000/- for Indian and the musuem is Rs. 130/- I'd recommend see the museum and go for a meal in the palace restaurant to experience the grandeur and avoid the palace visit completely. Also if you're not Indian, beware of the guards and dressed men. They will haggle and harass you take pictures with them and then charge you or further accuse you of using your camera in no-camera zones. The palace ticket allows you to look through the interiors of 3-4 rooms, along with a guide who recites mostly scenic verses from Bollywood movies in English (which isn't really value for money). The light and sound show in the evening will give you a great summary of the kings and queens and provide you enough context to understand the history of Pink City and their rulers! The ticket for this is Rs. 250/- which gives you views to the palace and museum in the night light.
