City Palace Jaipur

In the heart of the old city, the City Palace occupies a large area divided into a series of courtyards, gardens and buildings. The outer wall was built by Sawai Jai Singh, but other additions are more recent, some dating to the start of the 20th century. The palace is a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. The son of the last Maharaja and his family still live in part of the palace.

Before the palace proper lies the Mubarak Mahal (Welcome Palace), built in late 19th century by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II as a reception center for visiting dignitaries. It now forms part of the Maharaja Sawai Mansingh II Museum and contains a collection of royal costumes and superb shawls including sanganeri block prints, royal shawls. Kashmiri Pashmina (goat's wool) shawls, folk embroideries and Banaras saris.

In the outer courtyard or Sarvatobhadra, there are two giant silver urns. Craftsmen in Jaipur built these for Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II. When he went to England he carried these urns with him filled with water from the holy Ganges River. These giant silver urns are listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the largest silver objects in the world. A tour of the City Palace Jaipur is like a history lesson come alive in vibrant colors.


The palace showcases an impressive blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. Built in the capital city of Rajasthan, city palace is segregated into series of courtyard, gardens and buildings. It houses several palatial structures like the Chandra Mahal, Mubarak Mahal, Badal Mahal, Sri Govind Dev Temple and the City palace museum.
