The Albert Hall Museum in Jaipur is the state's oldest museum and also serves as Rajasthan's state museum. The building is a fine example of Indo-Saracenic architecture and is located in Ram Niwas garden outside the city wall opposite New gate. The Government Central Museum is another name for it.

Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob, with the help of Mir Tujumool Hoosein, designed the building, which opened as a public museum in 1887. Originally intended to be a town hall, Maharaja Ram Singh's successor, Madho Singh II, determined it should be a museum dedicated to Jaipur's art and included as part of the new Ram Nivas Garden.

It is named after King Edward VII (Albert Edward), who placed the foundation stone for it on February 6, 1876, while visiting the city as the Prince of Wales.

Paintings, jewellery, rugs, ivory, stone, metal sculptures, and works in crystal are among the museum's many objects. Coins from the Gupta, Kushan, Delhi Sultanate, Mughal, and British periods are included in the collection.

Haawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal (The Palace of Winds/The Palace of Breeze) is a royal palace in Jaipur. It was built from red and pink sandstone, the palace sits is on the edge of the City Palace, and extends to the Zenana, or women's chambers.

Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, the grandson of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh completed the structure in 1799. He was so fascinated by Khetri Mahal's distinctive structure that he erected this grand and historical palace. It was created by Ustad Lal Chand with 953 small windows called Jharokhas that are embellished with elaborate latticework, the building's five-story facade resembles a honeycomb. Because royal ladies were required to follow the rigorous norms of "purdah," which prohibited them from appearing in public without face coverings, the original goal of the lattice design was to allow them to witness everyday life and festivals enjoyed in the street below without being seen. This architectural feature also allowed cool air to move through due to the Venturi effect, making the entire space more pleasant during the hot summer months. Many visitors mistakenly believe the Hawa Mahal is the front of the palace when they see it from the street, although it is actually the back.

Jal Mahal Jaipur

Jal Mahal

The Jal Mahal palace is a great scale architectural exhibition of the Rajput style of building (popular in Rajasthan). The building boasts a beautiful view of Man Sagar Lake, but due to its remote location, it is also the focal point of a vista from the Man Sagar Dam on the lake's eastern side, with the backdrop of the Nahargarh ("tiger-abode") hills. The palace, which is made of red sandstone, is a five-story structure with four floors submerged and the top floor exposed when the lake is full. On the roof, there is a Bengal-style rectangular Chhatri. The four corners have octagonal chhatris. The palace had previously had subsidence and partial seepage (plasterwork and wall damage akin to rising damp) due to waterlogging, both of which were rectified as part of a Rajasthan government restoration project.
