It was well worth the visit for viewing Mughal architecture, miniature paintings, Rajput objects and cultural events. This is also called the City Palace Museum. It has some exquisite architecture and some fascinating exhibits that give a sense of the history of Jaipur and its surroundings. Very nice, nice collection of items  Amazing a visit if only to see the enormous silver water carrying jars. Heavy enough empty but the thought of transporting them to London fill of water is somewhat mind blowing. it’s a direct look into the private lives of the Rajput and their families. The armory, their robes, the pictures that highlight so vividly their world. Obviously, the real hit would be a tour of their private palace, that is still theirs and it’s not open to the public.
A fantastic array of clothing and fashion of the times. It is also steeped in history and gives a good indication about the previous kings of Jaipur. You can get to see the attire wore by the royal family on various occasions, the history of all the kings.

And the eve ends with  Baradari’s delectable Food.Baradari the latest in a series of initiatives by the Jaipur royal family for the visitors at City Palace. It wraps around the courtyard of what was once the historic service court of the City Palace. With cooling water cascades and an elegant bar that plays with the traditional form of baradari (a columned, open pavilion), it is the perfect place to conclude a visit to the Museum or to host a meal. The menu covers a range of delicious options suitable for many dietary requirements. Highly recommend popping in for a relaxing dessert Apple Jalebi and  Blueberry cheesecake, and fresh rose petal ice cream by the Baradari.100% Will go back,
