  The Palace of the Maharawal in Jaismaler Fort
by Paul2001

The Palace of the Maharawal is small when compared to some of the other great fort/palace complexes like Meherangarh Fort in Jodhpur that I visited in India but I think that it is still worth a visit. The fort consists of five stories of chambers and balconies overlooking the town of Jaismaler. From here you can take excellent photos of the town itself. The interior of the palace has been turned into a museum. On exhibit is the usual collection of weaponry and paintings that you begin to expect in such palace museum. They are interesting so I should not diss them so easily.
The Palace of the Maharawal is open daily from 9am to 5pm. It cost 50R to visit and an additional 50R if you are taking photos.

Directions: At the Main Chowk.
