The City Palace complex is situated in the core of the Pink City and encompasses of all the strikingly constructed courtyards, and attractive gardens which provide us a delightful sight into the majestic history of Jaipur and India as a whole. You will find yourself to be flabbergasted on the very first sight of this palace, all of which has richly decorated gates architectured in ‘grid style’.
About Mubarak Mahal, it is a museum; a fountain of various textiles such as block print costumes, Kashmiri pashminas and silk saris which were worn by the then rulers. Also, there is an ample amount of display of clothes worn by Sawai Madhosingh I who was of 3.9ft and 250 kilograms, but the fun fact remains that he was an icon in the history of polygamy with 108 wives.
The other momentous space is Govind Dev Ji temple which is one of its kind and is dedicated to Lord Krishna. It was constructed in the early 18th century and is bounded by a exquisite garden. The prayers are offered some seven times a day which makes the place all the more peaceful and the aura more positive.
The other significant edifices are harmonizing to this palace and embrace their own standing in this very well-built palace.
