City Palace, Jaipur
City Palace, Jaipur

In the heart of the old city, the City Palace occupies a large area divided into a series of courtyards, gardens and buildings. The outer wall was built by Jai Singh but other additions were made much later, some right up to the start of this century. Today, the palace is a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture, the former Maharaja still lives in part of the palace.

The City Palace complex houses several palatial structures. The first building in it is Mubarak Mahal, built by Kaharaja Madho Singh. It has a beautifully carved marble gate with heavy brass doors on either side of this gate. Beyond this gate lies the Diwan -e-Khas, or the "Hall of Private Audience".
The 7 storeyed Chandra Mahal is the centerpiece and commands fine views of the gardens and the city. The complex contains an excellent museum, an armory and several fine halls. The apartments are maintained in luxurious order and the museum of Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II has an extensive collection of art, carpets, enamelware and old weapons. The paintings include miniatures in the Rajasthani, Mughal and Persian schools. The armoury dating back to the 15 th century and many of the ingenious and tricky weapons which the warrior Rajputs were famous for. A section of museum also contains dresses and costumes of the former maharajas and maharanis of Jaipur.

Across a paved square lies the Diwan-e-Aam, or the "Hall of Public Audience". To the north-west is the stately and graceful seven storeyed Chandra Mahal, the residence of the ex-ruler. Each storey has a distinctive name and is a place of sheer beauty and luxury. Paintings, floral decorations, mirror walls and ceilings in the traditional style adorn the palace. The uppermost storey is called the Mukut Mahal.

Opposite the chandra Mahal lies the Baldal Mahal. The Govind Devji temple stands in the middle of the Chandra Mahal and Badal Mahal. A delightful system of fountains is placed in the middle of the paved path between the Chandra Mahal and the Badal Mahal. The palace has extensive and sprawling gardens

Outside the building you can see large silver vessels, that were taken to England by a former maharaja, filled with drinking water.
