It is a beautiful place to visit during day. Very photogenic place. A link of royal lineage, feel the royalty genre. Remember to take a guide as it will be worth to take one otherwise you would come out without knowing the history and importance of this palace. There is a market inside the palace where local handcrafted items are displayed, prices are on higher side but if you want to support local craftsmanship then please buy from them as the money you spend here will directly help these awesome local creative people, most of them has received recognition from PM and government of India.
Beautiful place to visit if you are in or around Jaipur. Brilliant show of ancient and traditional designs and blend of colours. I would recommend to go in without a guide as there is not much history to explain. Even a small intro video would be more than enough for it. Entry fee for Indians is around 200, and use student card if possible for half rates. It's a photogenic place but overcrowded.
It's a must visit if you're in Jaipur. The city palace is so named after the residence of the royal highness. It was built hundreds of years back. There are various types of tickets available to enter it ranging from 300 to 3500 rupees. The 300 rs ticket will give you access to the museum and the outer part of the city palace, the 1500 rs ticket will give you access to the inside of the city palace whereas the 3500 one includes visit to the royal blue coloured palace that you'll find in the pictures. We went with a 300 rupees entry as we were short of time and that only took an easy 3-4 hours with the help of a tour guide. Moreover, if you'll take a guide they'll take you to all the shops and artisans inside so be mindful of what you want to buy and what not to.
A very beautiful and historical palace in jaipur. It has been converted into a museum by a king itself. Currently, princess has opened a shop in the vicinity of a palace where you can buy handmade goods made by poor women, I bought two bookmarks made of cloth material, they are so pretty. Must shop something as a souvenir. Saw amazing clothes worn by kings and queens, guns and pistols, swords and spears, vessels and containers, must take a guide for better knowledge of this palace.
This is one of the MUST visit royal heritages in Jaipur. Entry fees is 200 rupees for resident indians, guide charges are extra. 2-3 hours are more than sufficient to visit this place including group photographs sessions. There are few galleries where taking photographs is not allowed. Places like photography hall, weapons hall are quite good. There are few shops and restaurants situated inside this place.
