Don't miss the museum tour and the puppet show here. It's the best! There are quite a few places that are private and inaccessible to the general public but it largely depends on the ticket that you purchase. Overall, it is a great visit right in the middle of the city.

You could spend half a day wandering around the various buildings and museums that make up the palace quite easily. The only are we didn't like particularly was the one given over to local arts and crafts - most of what was there was poor quality and expensive. Other than that the costumes and the armoury were our favorites.

I've seen more exciting places around Jaipur but this is history. The textile house was impressive and I loved the spring, summer, fall and winter doors. Very colourful!

Pretty expensive and of course no cards are accepted. At least 2 hours. Many places and inside courts to visit.
