With palatial buildings in its core reflecting rich architecture, the City Palace houses the complex of courtyards and impressive gardens. Situated right in centre of the Pink City, the buildings inside the City Palace reflect the fusion
of Mughal and Rajput architecture. The palace captures around one-seventh of the old city of Jaipur accommodating a sequence of manicured gardens, buildings, courtyard, temples and museum. The grand view of the palace reflects its magnificent royal grace which also symbolises its historical importance.
The outer wall of the palace has been built by Jai Singh II, but within it, the palace has witnessed expansion over last many cen-turies.
Mubarak Mahal in this palace welcomes tourists . There are two gigantic silver vessels inside this palace which are 5.2 feet long and weigh 340 kgs with a capacity of 4000 liters. If facts are to be believed, it is said that 14000 silver coins were melted without soldering to make those vessels.
When Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II was going to England in 1901, he wanted to take the holy water of Ganga with him. He thought it to be a sin to drink English or we can say foreign water. Hence, he carried Ganga water along with him. These wares were created in a two year time frame between 1894 and 1896. Now these vessels are also recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the World’s largest silver vessels.
