Beautiful piece of architecture. Feel like u entered a palace. Outside and inside it's just something you can't miss if you are in Jaipur. Must visit at least once. ”

“A complex of courtyards, gardens and buildings, the impressive City Palace is right in the centre of the Old City. The outer wall was built by Jai Singh II, but within it the palace has been enlarged and adapted over the centuries. There are palace buildings from different eras, some dating from the early 20th century. It is a striking blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. Our heritage home in Jaipur is located within 7 minutes’ drive by tuk-tuk / taxi to the majestic City Palace. ”

“A cafe that offers healthy and tasty fresh food with an international flavour. (kindly note: The cafe DOES NOT offer Indian food, many other places in Jaipur offer great Indian food) As far as possible the cafe offers foods that are made from fresh seasonal organic produce grown locally at Anokhi farm. Their salads for example are made from home grown organic lettuce that is freshly picked every morning and served the same day, it is washed with bottled mineral water of course!”

“Established in 1949, Niro’s is a long-standing favorite on MI Rd that, like a good wine, only improves with age. Escape the chaos of the street by ducking into its cool, clean, mirror-ceilinged sanctum to savour veg and non-veg Indian cuisine with professional service. Classic Chinese and Continental food are available, but the Indian menu is definitely the pick.”
