Travel guide to Jaipur
Palace Entrance in Amber Fort
Palace Entrance in Amber Fort
Jaipur, located 262km from Delhi, is the Pink City of the state of Rajasthan. The sights here are spectacular as they embrace Rajput architecture in its finest glories and in the colours of red and pink sandstones.

The must-do sights include:-

1. HAWA MAHAL aka THE PALACE OF THE WINDS which was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh.

2.AMBER FORT & PALACE - The Amber Palace lies within this fort complex, and is one of the finest examples of Rajput architecture. It's construction was started by Raja Man Singh I, and was completed over a period of about two centuries.

3. JAIPUR CITY PALACE - oozes the riches and grandeur of the Rajput dynasty and you can see it from the moment you step into the entrance. The sight that welcomes you is the graceful seven storeyed 'Chandra Mahal', or the Moon Palace.

4. JANTAR-MANTAR (ie instruments for measuring the harmony of the heavens) or Astronomical Observatory. It is a scientific marvel and leaves you spell bound. [edit text]  [editors]
