TOP 5 PLACES TO VISIT IF YOU’RE IN JAIPUR!
The crown of the city ‘City Palace’.
It was earlier the ceremonial and administrative seat of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Visitors are allowed to wander around the meuseum , but se part of the Palace is still restricted to outsiders as it continues to be the home of the Jaipur Royal family. The city palace also reserves the most beautiful section for only a select few. The Chandra Mahal is a four story building behind the area accessible to general public. The entrance fee to this area is INR 2500 but definitely worth a visit.
Another monument of Jaipur which is vibrant & colorful. There are boards in every corner of the meuseum which talks about the history of the palace.
