What you See in City Palace Jaipur


The Palace of Jaipur is one of the most recommended visits if you are in this pink city of rajhastan. It is located in the old part of Jaipur, very close to the Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the Winds, and the Jantar Mantar. In the heart, go.

Entering the Palace of Jaipur costs 180 INR, although if you want to take photos you will have to pay another 100 INR and INR 200 if you record videos, I have already explained to you on occasion that ticket prices in India are much cheaper for locals than for foreigners.

Before entering the City Palace of Jaipur, we lived one of those typical water discharges of the monsoons that left us drained in a matter of seconds. The water dragged everything and I can assure you that the sewage systems are not as efficient in India , so imagine everything we saw in those waters.

But let's leave our war stories and focus on this imposing complex. It has buildings, gardens, courtyards and walls. At present it has a fairly large part that can be visited, and another that is closed to the public. An example of this is the Chandra Mahal which still serves as the residence of the current Maharaja of Jaipur.

What I remember quite clearly from the Jaipur Palace is the mix of styles that could be seen throughout the complex. Let's say it was a fusion between the architecture of the Rajhastan area and the influence of the powerful Mughals, whose buildings we could contemplate during the entire trip to India . The buildings are milk, and the colorful mix between pink and ivory is very showy.

In one of the areas visited, I remember that there was a kind of museum of clothes of the Maharajas. It's something like when we're in a cathedral and you start to see clothes of former bishops and cardinals, but in their Hindu version.

What struck us most about this museum was the image of a certain Sawai Masho Singh I who would have left any sumo wrestler at the height of bitumen. The type measured 2 meters high, had a wingspan of 1.2 meters wide and weighed 250 pounds. The best of all is that the crack was a conqueror, because he had 108 wives.

Another interesting area of ​​the palace is the arsenal where there were lots of daggers and very cool swords, in addition to many mirrors and ceilings inlaid with gold. The courtrooms are also amazing and can be visited.

However, more than the interior and the collections of wealth of the maharajas, to me what I most speechless, are the patio doors, the buildings and some bas-reliefs with motifs of peacocks that are a true work of art. It is noted that the money of the maharajas could hire the best craftsmen.

It is at least curious to see the opulent places in which the maharajas live and live and compare them with similar places in other cultures and countries. The truth is that so much wealth and ostentation collides much more in places like India where social inequalities are much more marked than in Western countries.
