The City Palace, a symbol of the royal days of City of Jaipur lies right beside the site of Jantar Mantar. City Palace is a building that has preserved the history of the city and is an icon of grandeur. City Palace used to be the home for the royal family of Jaipur but later it was divided into two parts; one which contains few courtyards and museums and the other where the royal family still resides. Fortunately or unfortunately don't know but we got to witness a grand wedding celebration of a local businessman. The royal palace, which already has an eye pleasing decor of itself, was all decked up for the grand event followed up that weekend. We got to take some good clicks as the organisers were kind enough to let us pose with their props.

Finally, we ended our trip to City Palace with some authentic Jaipuri Matka Chai (Kulhad Tea). It helped us replenish our energy and got us ready for our next destination. After wandering around for some time we headed straight to our final sightseeing of the day - The light and sound show at Amber fort.
