About city palace
City Palace in Jaipur is a blend of traditional Rajput and Mughal architecture bound to leave you wonderstruck. A vast palace complex, this palace was originally built by Maharaja Jai Singh II in 1932. Today, City Palace is known for housing the Chandra Mahal and the Mubarak Mahal, apart from the series of courtyards, sprawling gardens and buildings that populate the complex.
The magnificent architecture and huge gardens of City Palace take you to the eras of Rajas and Maharajas. Only the ground floor of the Chandra Mahal is accessible as the descendants of the royal family still reside in the rest of the building. Other notable places inside the complex include the two sterling silver vessels in the Diwan-I-Khas, which are the largest vessels in the world, weaponry display at the Maharani Palace and the Baggi Khana, a museum of the Maharaja's rides. At the Mubarak Mahal, you can see the variety of textiles and the lush garments the Maharajas of Jaipur used to wear. From Sanganeri Block Prints to exquisite Kashmiri Pashminas, you can see it all here. The most fascinating amongst these costumes are perhaps the ones of Sawai Madhosingh I, who weighed about 250 kg
