  • Nice building but with limited access. Inside you will find a small museum of one of the Maharaja's family. If you are traveling in many cities in Rajasthan most probably you won't miss this place.  more »
  • The palace is divided into three parts, one part is the residence of the royal family, the second part is a hotel and the third part is a museum having a nice collection. Don't miss the vintage cars.....  more »
  • Great place to visit. Very well maintained. I could see a person constantly cleaning the surroundings. The garden is well maintained. In the museum, you can see old collections of crockery, paintings etc. You cannot see the entire palace because one side is a hotel now, and on the other side the royal family resides. Entry ticket is ₹30 per adult.
  • The place is accessible from city. An auto should be a good option and if you are travelling in the city. Parking facility is good. The typical required time is about 2 hours. The museum consists a lot of private collection and day to day items used the royal family. The passion related to sports is very evident and is worth spending some time. The vintage car collection is priceless and wonderful to see. Overall a good place to visit
