As you enter the first courtyard you’ll see the Guest Pavilion (Mubarak Mahal) which was built in the nineteenth century. The structure now serves as a museum housing a collection of textiles, accessories and musical instruments from the local royalty of the past. The City Palace armoury next door to the museum has one of the most extensive collections of rather vicious weapons on display, among them is an 11-pound (5-kilogram) sword.
If you want to try to catch a glimpse of Jaipur royalty, your best bet is the Peacock Courtyard (Pritam Niwas Chowk). If things look quiet in the towers of the Moon Palace above, you can still enjoy the intricate designs of the four painted doorways.
