City Palace, Jaipur

As a compound overflowing with lush gardens, sprawling courtyards, and buildings — Jaipur’s City Palace is quite literally an (Instagram) oasis in the middle of the Pink City. A mix of Rajasthani and Mughal over the centuries, there are seemingly endless photos to be taken here — from the shimmering palace doors displaying the seasons to the rainbow Peacock Gate, the pink Diwan-I-Khas room, and the famously blue Chhavi Nivas. If you want to snap photos that look like you have the palace to yourself, head here first thing in the morning or in the late afternoon.

The majestic and jewel-like green door of the courtyard at The City Palace in Jaipur, India represents the coming of spring and honors Lord Ganesh. This beautiful palace was built in the 18th century and now encompasses both a museum for visitors as well as a residential area for the royal family.

Even though Jaipur is known as India’s pink city, there’s one particular destination that’s overflowing with brilliant shades of emerald green. Jaipur’s City Palace has multiple gates that are all gorgeously ornate, and the fourth one is basically Instagram famous by now.
