Jaipur Travel Guide

Overview

Jaipur in Rajasthan is one of the most captivating historical cities of India and the gateway to India’s most flamboyant Rajput culture. Decorated camels, women in multi-coloured bandhej saris, men with mustache and turbans, pink sandstone buildings, chaotic streets, palaces & forts and Indian Royalty at its best; is all about the place. Amidst mayhem the city is dotted with majestic palaces, forts and old world architecture. Travelers never miss the City Palace and its museum, the royal observatory - Jantar Mantar, delicately honeycombed Palace of the Winds - Hawa Mahal, majestic Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort, Jal Mahal, Nahargarh Fort and the Chand Baori Step Well, at a little distance from the city. The Chokhi Dhani Village Resort has also been a hot favorite of Indian & Foreign travelers. This place has rustic rural setting that captures the true spirit of Rajasthani culture with lot of activities and authentic Marwari cuisine. The place is festive during Gangore & Diwali.
