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.

  • Historic. Calm and peaceful. One can spend quality time in here without the hustle and bustle of the city, even though it is a tourist attraction. Take care of the heat though. :3
  • Awesome place dont miss this place. A very good hangout place with children to share our rich history. I was taken for surprise when some painting workshop was going on inside check one photos
  • A part of the palace is converted into a museum. The Royal things are displayed very beautifully and they have an area where there the award winning artists sit. One can see their work and also buy it. Lovely place or should I say lovely Palace.
  • This is not at all a bad place to visit but it is quite overrated. It is well maintained. The tickets are available at rupees 135 and 2000. My suggestion would be not to go for 2000 rupees, its not at all worth. It is a good place to spend some time and click few beautiful pics.
  • Can be better if they treated it like a heritage monument which has played witness to do much history of the country. Places like these just seem like opportunities to fleece people rather than serving as an example of the nation's rich legacy. The best attractions are the weapons on display in the armoury. Unfortunately, the regressive thinking is the management prevents people from taking pictures here. In this age they actually need people to showcase the best parts of the monument so that more people are drawn to it.
