We decided to start our day by visiting the City Palace. The moment we laid our eyes on the City Palace, we realized that it is grandeur personified. The ticket price is INR 300. The City Palace is stunning- inside and out. Looking at the enormous white, domed and towered exterior is overwhelming, but it is not until you wander the nooks and crannies of the interior that the hidden treasures are fully revealed. Courtyards and arched doorways lead you step by step to wonder after wonder. The beauty of the reflective mirrors, tiles and glass are beyond description by words alone. The main part of the palace complex now serves as the City Palace Museum, housing a collection of miniatures, ceramics, paintings, inlay glass, antiques and enamel works. The windows throughout the palace offer spectacular views of Lake Pichola.
Tip: The city palace will consume half of your day. So, plan accordingly and make sure that your stomach is full.
