Jaipur Attractions Feb 23

Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, is one of the most popular  destination for travel in India. It became known as the pink city after the entire city was painted that colour to welcome the Prince of Wales in 1853. Key Jaipur attractions include its palaces, ancient forts and other interesting remnants of yesteryear.

Jaipur Tourist Places - Hawa Mahal
Title: Hawa Mahal

Among the many Jaipur sightseeing attractions include Hawa Mahal, a unique palace built by the poet-king Sawai Pratap Singh in the late 19th century. It is part of the City Palace complex, and has over 900 small windows facing the street. The idea was to allow the royal ladies to view the goings-on in the street without being seen. The breeze blowing through the windows also keeps the palace cool, and gives Hawa Mahal its name. Jantar Mantar, a monument built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh to observe the movement of the stars, Nahargarh Fort, Amber Fort, Gaitore, Central Museum and the City Palace are among the other major Jaipur tourist places.

Jaipur offers an exciting range of activities for visitors. You can enjoy excursions to Sanganer, known for its Jain temples and handmade paper industry, Ramgarh Lake or shopping in the city’s colourful markets. Shopping is one of the great Jaipur attractions; the city is renowned for kundan jewellery, brassware, textiles, quilts and footwear. Elephant/ camel rides and playing elephant polo at the Rambagh Palace can be an unforgettable experience.

While visiting Jaipur tourist places can be fun, one way of getting the total Jaipur experience is by being there during one of its many colourful and vibrant festivals.

Other places on the Jaipur sightseeing agenda include Jaigarh Fort, Govind Deoji Mandir, Kanak Valley and the Laxminarayan Temple.

The old city of Jaipur, with its beautiful monuments and colourful bazaars, offer tourists a fantastic experience. Many hotels in Jaipur also offer cultural programmes that include puppet shows, music performances and folk dances that make a tour of this city memorable.
