4.0
#2 of 14 in Museums in Jaipur
History Museum 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.

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.

  • The home of the Royal family. Must visit attraction if you're in Jaipur. You need at least 2-3 hours to explore everything inside. It's really beautiful and well maintained. There are guides also on offer, but I'd suggest you explore it yourself and buy a guide map or book, as the guides charge exorbitantly high fee. Crowded on weekends.
  • Awesome place. Please make sure that you hire a guide cause he's the only person who knows bout the history of that place. Just seeing what is present there won't be any fun, the details are very interesting. And the guides there r very cheap.
  • A part of the palace is converted into a museum. The Royal things are displayed very beautifully.Lovely place or should I say lovely Palace.it is quite overrated. It is well maintained. The tickets are available at rupees 135 and 2000.
  • Well Maintained. Its converted to a museum. Loved the weapons display. The armaments​ showcased the glorious past. It's close to Hawa mahal making it a must visit. Parking is available . They charge 250 for a small photo and that's a crazy business for them. Bring your own camera and click pics 😀
  • City Palace is a must visit place in Jaipur. The way it has been built is amazing . You will see beautiful art here. Its a place worth spending some time.
