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.

City Palace of Jaipur Reviews
We loved Jaipur but felt very ripped off by this place. We paid 20,000 rupee each and had to have a guide to wonder around a couple of rooms and then visit 3 shops. I would never go again and since..... more »
A huge palace in the Jaipur city. A guide gives you a good amount of detail on the palace. But you can still visit the palace without a guide. A small puppet shop is located near the exit of the... more »
You haven’t arrived in Jaipur until you come to Jaipur City Palace. The place is rich in history, heritage and stories of Jaipur royalty. My favourite bit has to be the famous Blue Room. Make sure you get the tickets that allow you the access to all the beautiful inner chambers. The best time to visit is between 10am - 12pm. Skip the coffee shop in the palace and save your tummy space for delicious food outside.
The palace is well maintained. We opted for a audio guide from the ticket desk which came at a cost of rs. 150 per set. The staff at the counter guided the use of the mobile guide set. The museums inside the palace were very clean. The lighting was also very good. The headset provides information about each place with a specific number on it. We can have our own time and got brief description about each place. The textile museum, paintings, photography museum is also very good. We can see the inner abode of the royals at a slightly higher entry fee. However the basic entry fee covers about anything we would like to see in a palace. There is also a small outlet selling clothes, bangles pauntings etc in the museum. Overall it is worth seeing.best time to go at around 10 o clock in the morning.
