City Palace Jaipur
The city palace is open every day Monday through to Sunday. The opening hours of the City Palace follows the trend of Jaipur of shutting relatively early in the day, the opening hours are from 9:30 until 17:00. The entrance fee is Rs300/200 (adult/child), an informative audio guide can be hired for Rs80 and this is highly recommend as there are few inscriptions or details within the palace.
