The first palaces, courtyards, gardens and pavilions that make up Jaipur’s City Palace were built in 1727 by Maharaja Jai Singh II, ruler of the kingdom of Amber, in what is now Jaipur. The complex was added on to through the centuries, with some of the newer structures dating from the twentieth century. The royal family, one of the richest families in India, still lives in the Moon Palace (Chandra Mahal) on the site.

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.
