Description

The City Palace in Jaipur was established in 1727 by one of the most distinguished figures in Indian history, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, who is remembered today as a statesman and astronomer. From the date of its foundation until 1949, his palace served as the main residence of Sawai Jai Singh's successors and as the centre of the Jaipur court administration. Today, the palace includes a privately owned museum of courtly arts.

Historically one of India's most important royal complexes, Jaipur City Palace was always much more than the residence of a maharaja. It was also a site of religious ritual, a place of entertainment, a centre of politics and court ceremony, and a source of patronage for music, literature, dance and painting. This book describes and illustrates the palace buildings and the many activities that they accommodated.
