About City Palace in Jaipur

An arresting complex of royal courtyards, sprawling gardens, and marble-floored chambers, the City Palace in Jaipur is a crown jewel in the old pink-walled quarters of Jaipur. Hundreds of history buffs, occasional travellers, and families visit this royal residence today to catch a glimpse of Jaipur’s Kachwaha dynasty.

History of City Palace

The of Amber grew in population under the rule of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II in the early eighteenth century. The Maharaja founded the city of Jaipur in 1726 as the capital of his princely state. Using red and pink sandstone, the new palace was built in Rajasthani and Mughal architectural styles within the next six years. Its outer wall was finished later by Maharaja Jai Singh II. A remarkable example of human ingenuity, the City Palace in Jaipur is one of the most popular destinations in Rajasthan.

Attractions of City Palace

Let’s take a look at some of the most prominent structures of the City Palace in Jaipur.

Entry Gates: The palace has three richly decked entry gates, which are the most striking features people come across while visiting here. Two entry gates – Virendra Pol and the Udai Pol – are open for visitors while the Tripolia Gate is reserved for the royal family.

Mubarak Mahal: Built with a purpose of reception centre, Mubarak Mahal has now been converted into a museum displaying a wide variety of Rajasthani textiles worn by kings and queens of the state.

Chandra Mahal: The seven-storeyed Chandra Mahal houses Ranga Mandir, Mukut Mahal, Shri Niwas, Sukh Niwas, and a museum. Decked with works of mirror, floral adornments, and exclusive paintings, here visitors can take delight in its grandeur.

Maharani Palace: Adorned with gems and semi-precious stones, this palace used to be occupied by a royal queen. The armoury in Maharani’s Palace displays weapon collections and engraved ceremonial items.

Besides the aforementioned attractions, a visit to Baggi Khana, Diwan-i-Khas (Hall of Private Audience) and Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience) are also included in the public tour of City Palace. The Pritam Niwas Chowk is an inner courtyard bounded by four gates, each adorned with beautiful motifs.

Facts about City Palace

The enticing City Palace was built by the founder of the city of Jaipur, Sawai Jai Singh.

The palace has four small gates in its third courtyard, which represent the four seasons.

Only the half portion of the palace is open to the public, while the other half is inhabited by the royal family.

To see a collection of attire that Rajasthani kings and queens used to wear, one can explore the Mubarak Mahal, which is now a museum of royal textiles.

While, for chariots and coaches, one can visit another museum, called Baggi Khana.

    • Trip to Delhi

      Manali, Delhi, Mathura, Agra & Jaipur. At Manali, 3N stay was totally disappointed due to waiting for driver (Om Prakash) for pickup from hotel for local sightseeing 3 to 4 hrs delay every day which impacted on our happiness, like that so many other nonsense experienced with driver due to non cooperation, etc...... In fact it was total loss for us & while return from Manali to Chandigarh on last day driver again started playing with us without proper cooperation. When we contact Mr. Naman from Travelloa holidays for the same. After so many discussions with driver, his mood changed. Finally we reached to Chandigarh. Hotel Monarch Residency at Manali was not wrathful, no proper maintenance. We felt happy by visiting Rohtangpass with our own. Except this everything in Manali trip was irritated us. Travelloa holidays excused for the same & trying to resolve by arranging compensation for the loss? Delhi, Mathura, Agra & Jaipur trip was awesome. We spent quality time & enjoyed trip due to proper guidance of driver ( Thankful to Mr. Pawan) & hotel stays. My understanding on travelloa holidays is they are good towards Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, may be other places....but definitely they don`t have right agents at Manali. Thanks to Travel triangle & travelloa holidays for memorable trip.

    • Trip to Uttarakhand

      The trip was spoiled by the poor network connectivity at Nainital and Ranikhet.Cab driver was from Jaipur and he didn't know about the routes of the travel destinations.Many a time we travelled on the same routes and asked to local people for the hotels.The audio system in the cab was malfunctioning.The driver was also complaining about the tour co-ordinators and shouting his frustrations in the cab which was not cool.The only good part of the tour was hotel locations.

      Enjoyed the trip to Agra, Jaipur & Delhi. Covered all the places in the Itinerary. The driver & driving part of the service is excellent. The selection of hotels should have been nearer to the market and city for the convenience of us as tourist. There was no on-trip coordination. In overall, Tour was satisfactory and expected DeeJohn to come up by rectifying the shortfalls.
