Like most of the Jaipur layout, this Palace is also a result of the fusion of Mughal and Rajput architecture. The building has been designed by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II.
A vast area covering one-seventh of the old town of Jaipur lies in the complex of the City Palace. It has an extensive sequence of gardens, buildings, and courtyards as well as a temple and museum that represents its historical importance and its majestic kingly grace. Raja Jai Singh and his successors build their external boundaries to add beauty. It was designed by other systems. It was also used by the former Maharaja of Jaipur as a residence.
The whole town palace is beautiful. To lovers of art and literature, this is a paradise. There is also a section for Jaipur craftsmen where you can purchase souvenirs. They have traditional organic paintings and wooden memorial replicas. It’s the best way to bring home a memory.
Beginning at 9:30 am the City Palace will be open. It takes about half to two hours for the whole palace to tour. They have a combined ticket to the museum and Fort Jaigarh.
Perhaps a small few will consider the City Palace the most beautiful part. The four-story Chandra Mahal building is a public-friendly building behind the town. The entry fee is INR 2500, but it is certainly worth visiting. It is recommended to take a map or an audio map, as the palace is rich in history. The audio guides can be taken from the main door for INR 200.
