City Palace

City Palace Jaipur

A delightful introduction to Mogul and Rajput architecture and culture, the City Palace, in the center of Jaipur, displays the extravagant handiwork for which the region has long been known. An architectural whimsy of elaborate carvings and columns adorned with floral designs in gold and colored stones, the building houses an excellent museum with extensive collections of historical costumes, armor, carriages, carpets, furniture and paintings. After viewing the gorgeously painted Hall of Private Audience, gaze up at the present maharaja’s palace, known as Chandra Mahal, or Moon Palace. Note: there’s a quiet café tucked away on the palace grounds as well as a nice gift shop. The Jantar Mantar observatory is also worth a visit. Members can contact our Bookings Team for help organizing custom touring.
