The most sumptuous palace in Jaipur (that is open to the public, at least), Rambagh Palace is also the city's most expensive hotel, run by the Taj Group. It is set amid impeccably manicured gardens south of the walled city, not far from Moti Dungri. The palace was first built in 1835 as a small pavilion for the wet nurse of Ram Singh II, but it was later handed over to Madho Singh II who employed the architect Samuel Swinton Jacob, designer of the Albert Hall, to significantly enlarge the palace. In 1933, the palace became the residence of Man Singh II who further embellished the interiors. In 1957, the palace was finally converted into a hotel.

Rambagh Palace is open to the public, but a visit is best combined with a lunch at its restaurant or coffee on its terrace.
