The sheer vastness of the palace was mind-blowing. It is beautifully built and visually appealing. A must see.

A huge castle built by a wealthy man to glorify his family! Hearst castle is a good comparison. They allow you to see photos and some furniture and a clock collection and to wander around some gardens and see some of their expensive cars!

We enjoyed this fascinating collection of the Jodhpur royal family and the history of the building of the Umaid Bhawan Palace - such a gift to the people of Jodhpur.

The palace museum is not as great as other museums in Rajasthan. It may be because the royal family still lives there on another side. The surroundings are kept neat, the palace is situated on a hilltop. Only one hour is required to cover this place. There is a display of vintage cars just opposite to the palace building.

Something common across museums housed in Palaces in Rajasthan is they all have the articles belonging to/used by the Royal family of that specific palace. Same is the scene here in Umaid Bhawan Palace museum. You get to see the the various items belonging to/used by Jodhpur rulers. Apart from this, you see the model of the Umaid Bhawan palace....

Nothing to see here. A really very small area is accessible to people and you cant even see the entire palace even from outside. Front and back is owned by Taj hotel. You can see front from outside without a ticket and back side, which actually has a huge garden and is worth seeing, is not at all accessible to... More
