City Palace of Jaipur, Jaipur

4.0
#2 of 27 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.

  • One of the best place in Jaipur Well maintained n clean . Every place has demonstration with sign board so that people can get the information about the particular place. City palace is one of the best monument in Jaipur. Average visit time : 3-4 hours Pros: Well maintained Food available inside Best place to capture your memories Water facilities there Clear information about the places Cons: Entry fees bit high Guides are cheaters Overall 9/10
  • A must visit for all visiting Jaipur even though steeply priced. Best to see with a guide. Best time to visit is in the winters. A large part of the palace has been thrown open to the public. Interesting to see how the royals lived during medieval times. Very well maintained, clean and efficiently managed. Keep an entire morning for this. Well connected to the city, by all means of transports.
  • Highly recommend seeing the palace inside. It is expensive but worth seeing all the floors. Beautifully maintained palace where the royal family still resides. We had a tour guide with us who had interesting stories to share on the family and the architecture. They also serve you light refreshments as part of the package.
  • Royal life wants to see, then this is the place where you can see everything. Clothes, guns, food and astrology life of ancient days. Superb place to see. Especially weapons room was excellent. And also their polo games and winning cup. Finally their family photo really superb.
  • This is place is simply great located in the city of Jaipur. This is the home of King/Queen and family after they shifted from the Amer Palace located on the other part of the city on a hill top. A very beautiful Palace with wonderful Architecture. This is quite a famous place in Jaipur and one of the must visit while here. It is quite easy to reach here from any where in the city. The scenic beauty is Superb here.There is a museum as well here with all the previous kings who ruled Jaipur in past. Enjoy !!!!!
