The beautiful city of Jodhpur is known for its grand palaces, beautiful temples and ancient museums. One such crowd-puller is the Umaid Bhawan Palace, which is symbolic of the state's regal past.

The palace is called as Chittar Palace as local Chittar sandstone had been used extensively in its construction. Built during 1929–1942 by the mighty ruler of Jodhpur, Maharaja Umaid Singh, this palace is a living example of the Indo-colonial and Art Deco styles of architecture. At present, this royal palace is divided into two sections - one part serves as a hotel and the other as a museum.

The museum is an unmissable part of this magnificent palace and displays a wide collection of antique objects that belong to the bygone era. The list of items on display in this museum includes aeroplane models, antique clocks, beautiful crockery, trophies, weapons and stuffed leopards. A banner presented by Queen Victoria is one of the proud possessions of this museum.
