We visited the palace after the prince's wedding and could see the aftermath of the grand celebration that was held here.

The palace is majestic and huge, spread across a vast area. Its a sight to behold. However, in terms of exploration, only a side-wing of the palace is made available to tourist with an array of antiques and photos at display. Nothing that stands out in contrast to other palaces in Rajasthan.

There are some good collection of paintings. So, if you are interested in this, pay a visit. But, the palace itself felt too plain and uninspiring as a king's abode. Definitely not worth the huge entrance price.

The toilet facilities are in no way usable. There are a number of stairs to go up and down - all to visit similar looking rooms.

Expect to get a view of the palace grounds below unless it is covered for some wedding event or the other. I was definitely not amused.

Must visit place for museum lovers. provides you with great view and history artifacts. Also make sure that you have a guide here which will cost you Rs 200 or so.

The museum hosts a lot of great items! some gems even!
We found the museum a bit messy and composed of too many rooms looking exactly like the next one...
The walls and some paintings are damaged by people "touching" or just hanging out against these...
but if you stay patient, you'll find some gems and amazing items.
We particularly liked some of the fine paintings showing elephant rides, tiger hunting and Holi.
