About albert hall museum
Albert hall museum is one of the major tourist places in jaipur. Albert Hall museum Jaipur was designed by a British architect, Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob, who combined India Islamic architecture with neo-gothic that was fashionable in the Victorian era. This style of architecture is referred to as Indo-Saracenic and the Albert Hall Museum is the finest example in Rajasthan. The complex was completed 10 years later in the reign of Madho Singh II who decided the Albert Hall Jaipur should be used as a museum instead of a government building as Madho Singh I had planned. This is one of the oldest museums of Jaipur and keeps the essence of the Maharajas of Jaipur. There are number of courtyards, archways and towers standing as a symbol for rich architectural heritage of the country.
