This is place where present king (although just for namesake) stays. Also part of it is converted into heritage hotel. I went there as tourist rather than staying in hotel. This place has some real marvellous craftsmanship. Also it has a museum showcasing lots of historical artefacts.
They also offer to take picture on silver chair by paying extra but I found that as waste. They have a store room sort of setup where the chair is dumped.
There were some renovation was going on and the temporary restaurant was horrible.
Still will rate 4 due to craftsmanship and collection of artefacts.

The main portion of the two centuries old Palace was built during the reign of the late Maharawal Jawahir Singh. This palace is testimony to the history of Jaisalmer with different portions of the palace being built by different rulers of Jaisalmer till as late as the beginning of the twentieth century. ‘Badal Vilas’, a unique tower like structure at Mandir Palace is the tallest structure in town below the hill-top city fort, reminding us of the incredible historical relevance attached to both the palace as well as the city of Jaisalmer. ... more less
