about city palace

The City Palace has been completely taken over by state government offices, the Collectorate and more. Apart from admiring the architecture and ornamentation of this palace built in 1793 by Raja Bakhtawar Singh, visitors can climb up to the museum at the top. The museum has three sections: the first hall has royal robes and clay toys; the second is a storehouse of paintings; the third, a display of weapons (look out for the swords of Akbar and Jehangir).

Just behind the palace lies the large tank called Sagar, which has beautiful domed pavilions set around it. Across the water is a string of temples, and on the right, the beautiful marble and Karauli sandstone cenotaph of Raja Bakhtawar Singh (named after his mistress, Rani Moosi, who performed sati on his funeral pyre).

This is the place where you can take a leisurely walk. It gives you a glimpse of the ornate life style of the Maharajas. It looks amazing at the time of Alwar festival with lots of lighting and decoration.
