about city palace

Located inside the old city, City Palace in Jaipur is a blend of traditional Rajput and Mughal architecture bound to leave you awestruck. A vast palace complex that occupies nearly a seventh of the Pink City, this palace was originally built by Maharaja Jai Singh II in 1932. Today, City Palace is known for housing the Chandra Mahal and the Mubarak Mahal, apart from the series of courtyards, sprawling gardens and buildings that populate the complex.

One step into the City Palace and the magnificent architecture and huge gardens take you to the eras of Rajas and Maharajas. From the richly decorated gateways to the fascination that awaits you at each of the museums, the place makes for an exciting time.  At the Mubarak Mahal, you can see the variety of textiles and the lush garments the Maharajas of Jaipur used to wear. From Sanganeri Block Prints to exquisite Kashmiri Pashminas, you can see it all here. The most fascinating amongst these costumes are perhaps the ones of Sawai Madhosingh I, who weighed about 250 kg and still managed to have 108 wives!

The next stop on your adventure in the City Palace will probably be the Chandra Mahal, which can be called the most magnificent structure in the whole building, without a doubt! With seven floors that have their own unique names, the building houses some of the finest paintings, floral decorations and mirror work art that you would have set your eyes on.

Only the ground floor of the Chandra Mahal is accessible as the descendants of the royal family still reside in the rest of the building.  Other notable places inside the complex include the two sterling silver vessels in the Diwan-I-Khas, which are the largest vessels in the world, weaponry display at the Maharani Palace and the Baggi Khana, a museum of the Maharaja's rides.
