City Palace Jaipur India
The City Palace includes several buildings and courtyards and is located in central Jaipur. The exterior wall was built by Jai Singh II. The complex was built over many years.
The stunning pink colour was in honour of the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII. The colour has been associated with Jaipur known as the "Pink City."
The attractive entrance gate is reserved for officials.
The Chandra Mahal is the major seven-story building containing paintings and mirrors. Descendents of the former rulers of Jaipur live in the palace, which also serves as a museum.
The place of greeting the public (Diwan-i-Aam) is an attractive building with a marble floor and armoury.
A close look reveals the attention to details of the artisans.
There is a fee to enter the complex.
