“Must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

An amazing 16th century palace that is worth at least a one to two hour visit.

“Hang out in the courtyard”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

Skip the audio tour, it went on too long and I bailed. Do this OR Crystal Palace but not both or you will be "historied" out.

“Well kept, interesting history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

Loved how well kept the City Palace is and all the interesting history of the Mewar family. A guide is recommended in the City Palace itself. Tours of the Crystal collection, Vintage cars and Sunset boat ride on Lake Pichola also recommended. The Light and Sound show in the evening at the City Palace was a bit disappointing - the history narrative was interesting but the light show disappointing (we were expecting a bit more than just parts of the castle being lit up during different parts of the narrative).

“Nicer outside than inside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

The inside of the palace is not as refined and as beautiful as some of the other city palaces you can see in Rajasthan. It is still worth visiting it, if only for the nice sights you get over the city and Pichola lake and surroundings, but it can be a bit disappointing when you have seen Jodhpur, Jaipur or other city palaces before.
