#2 of 25 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.

  • After doing a cruise on the Lake the day before (really to do) we visited the fort as part of an organized tour. As an amateur photographer, find it me easy to judge posteriori interest of a site with photos that I did, and there must mean that apart from the outside which are very beautiful I have not much of the interiors... So to do if you have the time, but this is absolutely not a must. MM

  • There r two options for the palace visit. I took the 130 rs ricket on day 1. For foreigners 500 rs. Since I was a solo traveller and exploring at my own pace I did not hire a guide. The best things i ...  more »
  • If you are in Jaipur this is a must see because it has so many interesting features in the palace. Unfortunately I didn’t take the private tour (additional to the standard ticket) but even with the li...  more »

  • 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 !!!!!

  • The entry fee to this museum is Rs. 130 for Indian Nationals and higher for Foreign Tourists. Although not as big an area to explore as Amer Fort, but still it's worth a visit and you still spend some time here learning about the history of the royal family and taking pictures with the beautiful backdrop. This is actually a portion of the more larger area of the palace where the Royal Family actually resides right now. Entry for that palace is Rs. 2000 for Indian nationals. Getting a guide is highly recommended for Jantar Mantar which also is in the same vicinity.
  • I absolutely love the architecture of most historic structures in India and this was no exception. I would've liked to have had more time to take in some of the details, but overall the experience was very pleasant. Unlike many of the people outside of the palace, I didn't feel rushed or pressured to buy things. Definitely worth a stop if you're in Jaipur
  • Amazing place to visit and it’s good as there’s so much history. We paid the additional 2500 rupees to visit the blue room which we really wanted to but, found this really expensive for India and not sure how they would really justify this price. With this price you get a tour guide which is good as he offers to takes pictures for you) and a sit down inside with drinks/biscuit. As this part of the Palace is so expensive there were hardly anyone there so we pretty much had each room to ourselves.
