City Palace

  • Jaipur, Rajasthan, India

  • Bucket List Experience

Last updated: 07 April, 2024

When Maharaja Jai Singh II shifted his capital from Amber in around 1727, he laid the foundations for a meticulously planned city – Jaipur. City Palace lies at the heart of the Old City, a stirring complex of palaces, halls, courtyards and pavilions embodying the power and stature of one of Rajasthan’s leading royal families.

The glitz and glamour are tempered by various displays, from a quirky collection of carriages and palanquins to an astonishing armoury.

Getting there & doing it

You can’t miss the palace in the heart of the Old City. Although a guide isn’t essential, you’ll learn more about the palace and its history by using one. Choose between an audio guide (fun even for children) or a personal guide. Both can be arranged at the entrance; rates are fixed and reasonable.

When to do it

It’s open all year round, seven days a week. Try to avoid May and June, when it can be ferociously hot and uncomfortable.
