Occupying the heart of the Pink City, the City Palace has been home to the rulers of Jaipur since the early-18th century. The sprawling Jaipur City Palace complex is a beautiful fusion of Rajput and Mughal architecture, with breezy Mughal-style open courtyards leading off into exquisite private apartments. The sheer wealth of the Maharajas of yesteryear is immediately apparent in the opulence and excellent craftsmanship throughout. Much of the complex is now open to the public as the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum, aka the City Palace Museum. What remains relatively unknown is that the palace also inhabits several private rooms, in the stunning Chandra Mahal (‘Moon Palace’), which remains the residence of the erstwhile Maharaja. High Resolution stock photo portrays the stunning Shobha Niwas (Hall of Beauty) on the 4th floor of the Chandra Mahal at the City Palace. The medieval royal room walls are lavishly carved with mirrors, tiles and gold leaf detailing. The regal room was initially used for religious purposes, to pray during Hindu festivals such as Diwali and Holi.
