City Palace, Jaipur Reviews
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 !!!!!
Fantastic display of the rich culture and history of the Mughal kingdom. It has audio guide facility, which is best for solo travelers or travelers who want to take a slow walk around the palace and museum at their own speed. The display of antiques, weapons, etc. is mind blowing - one of the most fascinating collections in India. You can even get your hands on a dagger in the museum. It has some beautifully carved interiors and designs inside. It takes a good 3 to 4 hours to visit this place and spend some time there. Refreshments are available.
Nothing special about this place except that it is maintained well compared to other palaces in the area. It is surprising that it's a private property and nothing much to offer in terms of uniqueness if you visit it after other places in Jaipur. There are big big quarters and usual alleys and armoury rooms along with the special urns. Overall a good place which is accessible within city and offers some this photo booth where you can have a nice click, and pick up the snap later in a nice album like cover.
Heart of Jaipur. It's beautiful and covers a big area. The facts of this place are really amazing. If you're in a big group,it'll be good if you get a guide.. because it's really fun to know everything about this place. I also saw guides explaining in different languages..which was really cool to see. In short it's beautiful and you shouldn't miss this if you visit Jaipur. Also try visiting this place in the morning or afternoon because at evening there's a real rush and you might miss few things.
Palace right in the middle of Jaipur city where the royal family still resides. Its basically palace with museum. Armoury museum is one worth seeing. So adept in fighting can be made out from their multipurpose weapons and swords. Unique combinations of sword and guns. Sheath containing 2 swords are some other attractions. Overall a good trip to remember. Them there is palace operated textile/perfume shops which are good places to shop.
