English:City Palace, Jaipur, which includes the Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal palaces and other buildings, is a palace complex in Jaipur city, the capital of the Rajasthanstate, India. It was the seat of the Maharaja of Jaipur, the head of the KachwahaRajputclan. The Chandra Mahal palace now houses a museum but the greatest part of it is still a royal residence. The palace complex, which is located northeast of the centre of the grid patterned Jaipur city, incorporates an impressive and vast array of courtyards, gardens and buildings. The palace was built between 1729 and 1732, initially by Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber. He planned and built the outer walls, and later additions were made by successive rulers right up to the 20th century. The credit for the urban layout of the city and its structures is attributed to two architects namely, Vidyadar Bhattacharya, the chief architect in the royal court and Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob, apart from the Sawai himself who was a keen architectural enthusiast. The architects achieved a fusion of the Shilpa shastra of Indian architecture with Rajput, Mughal and European styles of architecture. (→City Palace, Jaipur)

Gangajalis are the largest silver objects in the world as per the entry in the Guinnes Book of World Records. They were made in the Mistry Khana by two silversmiths. Each jar was made out of 14000 Jhar Sgahi (Jaipur coins) silver coins which were issurd from the Kapatdwara treasure of Jaipur State in 1894. They were melted into sheets and shaped as the jars.
