If you're in to learning a bit about the history & culture of where you're visiting this is worth a visit. Lots on the Maharaja and his dynasty which sadly has just come to an end although there's drama and intrigue over that even today. Check it out.

Needs lot of walking around but overall even with below 5yr old kids we had a nice time. We moved around randomly as we didn't get a guide but having direction sign boards as to have better sequential coverage of the vast campus will be great help. Nevertheless had a nice time☺️

this place is simply breathtaking. ensure that you have comfortable walking shoes and be willing to pay for a tour guide to understand the history. It is a bit expensive but well worth it.

City Palace in Jaipur is a collection of royal articles belonging to the raja-maharajas of the past era. The City Palace complex, which is located northeast of the centre of the grid patterned Jaipur city, incorporates an impressive and vast array of courtyards, gardens, and buildings.

This was the nicest palace we visited with lots of interesting architectural features and staff uniforms in keeping with the building. The textile and weapons museums are well worth a visit ... the curator at the weapons one showed us round for a few rupees and he really brought the displays to life; even the royal children carried daggers and...
