Quite an attractive facade. Huge, filled with amazingly wealthy artefacts.It houses the worlds largest chandelier...massive...beautiful. The dining room table is fitted with a train with a track that runs the gamut offering cigars and drinks. That stops and starts when a decanter is replaced...novel piece. The rooms that have old outfits of nobility are very interesting...as is the silver howdahs... More

I found the two floors at the end of the visit (including a large reception hall) were the most interesting. For the rest it compares to other palaces visited in Rajasthan with nothing really extraordinary. It is worth a visit.

The palace has been maintained as a museum and most of it is open to the general public. Very neat and clean. Requires a lot of walking to view all the galleries.

Jai Vilas Palace is one of the most beautiful palaces in India and the world and I say this with knowledge not with admiration. The pure white facade against a blue sky makes for one of the most picturesque shots of any palace in the world. But apart from that it is not so beautiful. Only a small part of... More
