Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum, is the main attraction of the great City Palace of Jaipur. This museum has several galleries which are still called by their original names. Here, we have seen the collection of old clothes of “Maharaja”s and “Maharani”s, photographs, weapons and many more things used by the Royal family of Jaipur.
