The City Palace - Jaipur

Tailormade Your Tour

Magic of Architecture
The City Palace, JaipurThe City Palace is a monolith construction that blends beautifully Hindu and Mughal architecture. Different in design from most of the other traditional palaces the City Palace is not confined within the walls of a fortress. It stands majestic and independent. This labyrinthian structure takes up one seventh of the walled city and is exactly similar in layout to that of the town. A high wall or sarhad surrounds it on all sides lending it that aura of mystery always associated with things unseen.

Redolent with Treasures
The City palace encloses within its complex a series of courtyards, sprawling gardens and buildings. The main attractions include -

Mubarak Mahal
The main entrance to the palace, The Atish Pol (stable gate) opens onto a large courtyard in the middle of which stands the imperial Mubarak Mahal (The Palace of Welcome). Made of white marble this mahal lives upto its name and truly is a welcoming sight for any visitor.

The Diwan-i-Aam or the hall of public audience was the Maharajas' chosen durabar for public rendezvous. Step into this room of red and gold and be dazzled by its rich interiors. The floor lined with Persian rugs, the ceiling ornately painted and decorated with floral motifs in gilt, green and red. It also houses a picture gallery replete with miniature paintings of Indian and Persian artists and an extensive collection of priceless ancient manuscripts written in Sanskrit. Keep a few moments aside to admire the massive chandelier that descends from the ceiling, one of the biggest in all of India. Initially designed for durbars and banquets this hall also has latticed screens through which ladies in purdah would watch the proceedings. The Diwan-i-Aam also houses a carriage museum.

The Diwan-i-khas is the durbar where the king would conduct his private audience. It is an open hall with double rows of columns and scalloped arches. The most striking display in this durbar are two of the world's largest silver vessels, custom made for the king so he could take enough holy water from the sacred Ganges to last him a trip to England and back.

Pritam Niwas or the house of the beloved has a history as romantic as its name suggests. This palace once housed a harem of 1150 pretty ladies, every one of them devoted to Raja Jagat Singh. This palace has since been restyled to incorporate Italian decor, which lends it a charming European touch.

Chandra Mahal
Chandra Mahal or the Moon Palace is a graceful seven storeyed building and home to the present Maharaja of Jaipur, Bhavani Singh .
