City Palace of Jaipur, Jaipur

4.0
#2 of 14 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.

  • Must watch place if you like visiting heritage places. Have king clothes and arms in museum. Have ample parking for tourists. Requires more than 2 hours to visit it completely. Very popular amongst foreign tourists. Good place for marriage receptions
  • The styles of royals: City palace is just that, a palace. Few generations of the local royal family have lived here so the place is full of stories of their character and quirks. My first palace visit, and I learned I wasn't necessarily into those stories about the amount of gold in a shirt or how much a king weighed. Regardless of whether you are, recommend hiring a guide. Not only is it more entertaining, but more efficient that way. Place is definitely well-kept and clean.
  • City palace ....a true image of heritage and royalty...!!! It truly defines the period and its value...πŸ‘Œ The infrastructure shows how care it was build under the rule of kings and queens..! After making it a tourist spot also the place is and its heritage is well maintained!! I'm rating it a 4 coz some facilities are still not provided with comfort but again the heritage calls for a visit...πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’πŸ’
  • Owned and run by the royal family of Jaipur, who still lives on premises, this is a well maintained palace complex. The private quarters are exceptional examples of bygone eras of splendor, Indian style. The private quarters tour is significantly overpriced, which gives you access to the only attraction in the city that is not crowded, and a great view from the rooftop. The royal family sponsors the arts, and hosts a workshop in the Palace. Do not expect an art exhibition but rather local artists creating and selling their paintings and other crafts. As always here, a guide is a must to navigate the complex, its contents, and significance.
  • At the heart of the pink city, the galleries within are all amazing. I'd recommend going with a guide, else if you going solo, the audio guides are also quite resourceful. Loved the architecture and the detailing on all their buildings. Armoury was the highlight for me :)

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
