Jaipur City Palace Museum

Jaipur City Palace museum is one of the most visited one in Jaipur. The collection here provides a peek into the lives of the Jaipur royalty and is maintained by the trust of the princely family of Jaipur. City Palace continues being the residence of the descendants of the royal family therefore only a few sections of the palace are open to the public. The current display areas for the museums were not designed for the museum rather they are converted and adapted.

There are five sections of the museum in Jaipur City Palace, namely:

  • Textile museum gallery which is one of the most popular galleries as it prominently displays the garments worn by the erstwhile rulers, including Polo uniforms.
  • Sarvatobhadra pavilion gallery,
  • Sabha Niwas room gallery,
  • Sileh Khana arms & Armory Museum, and
  • Painting and Photography Gallery, which is a recent addition. The painting section contains many unique paintings; the photography section possesses pictures clicked by Maharaja Ram Singh II during the initial years of photography in India.

Check out this amazing boutique stop over in the middle of nowhere in Rajasthan – Rawla Narlai

A trained Interior designer who loves to travel, photograph and write, I have done some boutique stays in limited budgets and some in extravagant ones too. My forte is in using locally sourced/ made products which would provide support to the local community. I am also an advocate of using sustainable practices in housekeeping, laundry,etc which lessens the use of harmful chemicals. The water used for such chores is clean enough to be fed into the garden directly.

  1. Somehow my visits to Rajasthan never seem to take off. Would love to visit Jaipur and soak up the history. Thank you for another fabulously informative post. Bookmarking for my ‘someday’ vist!

    1. Rajasthan is just incredible and I have been pretty blessed to have toured a lot of places there. Wishing I could step out for just 2 days again. Right now all of us are just expanding our bucket lists, thanks to the pandemic. Hopefully we will be able to accomplish some of it in this lifetime and soon.
