Worth the pricey entry - and if you have a student card USE IT. We hired a guide who was helpful for the beginning of our visit there - explaining the history of the area, background context of the building, who lived in it and where the current owners live now etc. He was also helpful in explaining various aspects of the building and uses of rooms, tools and so on. Later on we felt like he was getting impatient when we wanted to take more pictures which was the down side...unfortunately you can’t come back after the guide finishes his tour as the building has a one way system due to the thight stairways. I suggested to hire an audio guide perhaps instead if you like to take your time taking pictures of the amazing interior decor and the spacious courtyards.

The palace with the view of the lake picola is amazing. The story behind it it’s very interesting. Always go with a local guide. Never alone, it enriches the visit.

Palace is build with lot of marbles so you should not visit the palace in summer.

Great stories behind this palace which you will witness when you will roam around.

Royal family still live in palace (One part of palace) other part is open for public which you can see by

Entry to the city Palace premises is Rs.30. In this you can see the city Palace from outside at the same time you can have a view of Lake Pichola and you can also enjoy the garden in front of the palace. One has to walk on a steep road for around half kilometre to roam around this place. Over all the entry fees seemed to be quite high just to enter and see the palace museum entry is Rs.300 for. For boating in Lake Pichola the entry is Rs.400. And for Crystal Gallery the entry is Rs.600 and light and sound show is Rs 500. There only one restaurant inside and it will make a hole in your pocket if you are not a crorepati. A soup cost around 400 here. So plan your entry in such a way that either you enter after lunch or exit before lunch.
