Chandra Mahal

This portion of Jaipur’s City Palace is the residence of the royal family and former Maharaja of the Pink City. Located in the west end of the palace complex, it stands seven stories tall and is also known as “Palace of the Moon.” As members of the royal family still reside here, visitors are only allowed on the first floor — which holds a museum of royal artifacts and decorated halls.

The Chandra Mahal is part of the City Palace that was built between 1727 and 1734, and is one of the oldest buildings in the site. There are paintings, historical murals, mirror work and floral decorations to gaze upon. The flag of the royal family still flies atop the highest tower, and the queen’s flag is flown whenever the king has left the palace.
