Hawa Mahal - Nahargarh Fort - City Palace - Jantar Mantar
 

Jaipur, called the Pink city because most of its buildings are of sandstone, was chosen by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II (1693-1743) for his capital. It still is the vibrant capital of the desert state of Rajasthan and a major attraction for the first-time visitor.

Jaipur is surrounded on all sides by rugged hills, crowned with forts and enclosed by embattled walls. The Old City, the actual Pink City, is a great place to wander around. Maharaja Man Singh II had the whole city painted pink when the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, visited Jaipur in 1876. Today, every home within the old city is obliged by law to maintain this facade. Fabulous, tall houses with latticed windows line the narrow streets of the old city, their rose pink colour lending enchantment to a scene which is almost magical at sunset. The city, which is very well planned, is laid out in a grid pattern.

 
Prime Attractions
City Palace - This magnificent palace of Jaipur comprises of buildings, courtyards and gardens. The palace, with its fortifying walls, represents a congruous blend of Mughal and Rajasthani architecture. Housed in the palace is a museum with a fascinating collection of rare manuscripts, Mughal and Rajasthani miniatures, carpets, costumes, textiles, arms and royal paraphernalia.

Jantar Mantar - At the entrance to the City Palace is Jantar Mantar, the 'Yantralaya' of Sawai Jai Singh II, the last great classical astronomer of India. This is the largest of five observatories founded by him in 1716 AD. The others are at Delhi, Ujjain, Mathura & Varanasi. Its massive masonry instruments are of an extraordinary precision & can still be used to measure local time, the sun's declination, azimuth & altitude, the declination of fixed stars & planets also to determine the time of an eclipse of the sun.


 
Hawa Mahal - A Pandora's box of wonders, Jaipur's signature building, the Hawa Mahal, a multi layered palace, was built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II. Famous for it's beehive like structure, the Mahal is an interplay of red and pink sand stone, carefully and painstakingly outlined with white borders and motifs. The palaces and forts of yesteryears, which were witness to the royal processions and splendors are now living monuments, accepted quite naturally into the lifestyle of the people of the "Pink City".

The Amber Fort - The magnificent fort with its huge ramparts & watchtowers, overlooking the Delhi-Jaipur Highway. The image of the Amber Fort is beautifully reflected in the lake below. Within the Fort lies the famous Jai Mandir (Temple) with its world renowned Sheesh Mahal, a hall full of Mirrors. Located 9 Kms north west of Jaipur, the Amber Fort was once the Capital of the Minas. Falling under the Golden Triangle, and being visited by millions of domestic and foreign tourists, the city of Jaipur is a place of high tourist interest.
 
Royal Gaitor - These are the cenotaphs of the royal family, including that of Jai Singh, made in white marble with intricately carved peacocks.
 
Jaigarh Fort - This impregnable fort was built in 1726. Jai Ban, the largest cannon in Asia, is inside the fort.
 

Samode Palace - Situated in the rustic village of Samode, is one of the most magnificent and opulent examples of Rajput architecture, the Samode Palace. The palace of Rajasthan is impressively decorated with exquisite paintings and mirror work.

Nahargarh Fort - Also known as the Tiger Fort, the Nahargarh Fort in Rajasthan appears breathtaking when floodlight at night. The views from the fort are beautiful.
