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.

  • Situated in the middle of the hustle bustle of the old city, this palace is a must visit in Jaipur. One needs at least 2 hours just to look around. Part of this heritage property still houses the royals and is not opened for public obviously. There are interesting museums in the palace, one displays garments of the royals and the other weapons. There are also two shops inside Entrance is charged at 140₹ as far as I remember. Its a beautiful serene palace and a must visit.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful place. Must visit here. I would love to visit here again. It's a very neat and clean place. Very well maintained. Good work by the team. Best wishes.
  • Right in the heart of the city and so interesting. I loved it as if was so fascinating. My only wish was that if was better looked after a x kept clean. The entire city it strewn with litter but if seems an extra shame when it gets into beautiful building ls too
  • It's a beautiful place to enjoy with family. Beautiful view from top. Also there's a museum there which displays the galleries and courts of all palace including the display of historical arms and weapons. Also the fees amount (entry charge is very nominal and students must not forget to carry the proof to avail discount!!
