Here are a few places that you should not miss in Jaipur.
Made of red and pink sandstone, the Hawa Mahal or ‘the Palace of Winds’ is one of its kind. At the edge of the City Palace, this unique structure extends to the women’s chambers at the time. It is beautifully designed and thus it is a popular tourist attraction.
Located in the centre of the city, the Palace is humongous with beautiful architecture and design elements. It includes several palaces and courtyards like Chandra Mahal, Mubarak Mahal, and more. The City Palace forms the essence of Jaipur and is a must visit.
Standing on the edge of Aravalli Hills is Nahargarh Fort, overlooking the city of Jaipur. It was a crucial place in forming a defense around the city, along with Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort.
The observatory is a collection of nineteen archaeological astronomical instruments which were built by the founder of Jaipur, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. These instruments are unique and large in size, including the world’s largest stone sundial. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
These are just a few of the places to visit while in Jaipur. Amber Palace, Jaigarh Fort, Jal Mahal,
Albert Hall Museum, and more are also popular tourist spots that you should not miss. Visit
the local restaurants to enjoy authentic Rajasthani delicacies like Dal Bati Churma, and more.
