Best Places To Visit In Jaipur

Jaipur is India’s most flamboyant state colorful in every imaginable way. Jaipur is the largest city in Rajasthan and was built in the eighteenth century by Sawai Jai Singh as India's first planned city. The pink city, as it is also known, is a delight for travelers and attracts millions of tourists from all around the world every year.

 

Even a week-long trip to Jaipur can give you access to the best sights of the city! There are a lot of places to visit in Jaipur, the capital of the Rajasthan land of the Maharajas. Historical and filled with many entertaining sights as well as famous for its amazing food, Jaipur is well worth the visit. Here are our top picks, and although this list is by no means exhaustive, the following attractions have always been the center of tourists’ attention.

 

1- Hawa Mahal:

Also known as “Palace of Winds” or “Palace of the Breeze,” it is a palace built in Jaipur, located on the edge of the City Palace, which is a true representation of Indo-Islamic culture from the times of the Rajput kings in India. the palace was built in red and pink colors sandstone, so it goes with the monuments of the “Pink City” Jaipur... 

 

the Hawa Mahal was built mainly out of pink and red sandstone and fits in aptly with the rest of the pink city. Culturally significant, this palace was built as a haven for the royal women to watch the public festivities and going-on from. 

 

2- City Palace: 

The City Palace is a masterpiece and a gift for art and history lovers. Visitors can also buy souvenirs from a section dedicated to the artisans of Jaipur. the Palace is reachable; one can take a cab for local site-seeing or take rickshaws if they want the Indian way of travel. it is only fitting that the number 1 attraction to visit is the City Palace of Jaipur. Situated in the very heart of the city, the city palace complex is a grand complex, with beautiful gateways, vast courtyards, two separate palaces, and pretty, well-manicured gardens.

 

3- Jantar Matar:

It is an astronomical observatory site in the Pink City Jaipur. Jantar Mantar literally means "instruments for measuring the harmony of the heavens". The observatory was built to help to interpret the position of celestial bodies and calculate local time. Along with palaces, temples, and gardens in Jaipur city, the Jantar Mantar has great importance internationally.

 

4- Jal Mahal:

The Jal Mahal, or the Water Palace, is located in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in the city of Jaipur. Yet another grand example of the fine Rajput architecture, the splendid monument can be seen as a standalone building in the middle of the lake from the Man Sagar Dam, but unfortunately, it was abandoned.

 

The 5-storeyed structure was built from sandstone, as with most of the Rajput palaces, and was abandoned due to a whole host of reasons. In fact, the Jal Mahal is partially submerged in water and only the top floor is visible to the public. Over a decade ago, restoration efforts helped restore major submerged parts of the palace, and the palace was illuminated with lights, providing for a spectacular night view of it. 

 

5- Nahargarh Fort:

Once a part of the strong defense-line for the city of Jaipur, the Nahargarh fort is situated atop the Aravalli Hills and overlooks the pink city. While it never did come under siege, it is iconic for multiple other reasons, the most recent ones being its feature in a few famous Bollywood films. The Nahargarh fort today is also home to the Jaipur Wax Museum and is surrounded by a dense forest. 

 

6- Nahargarh Biological Park:

The Nahargarh Biological Park is home to a vast variety of flora and fauna, especially well-known for being home to hundreds of species of birds. The park also consists of a zoo, which is home to different wild animals, like the Asiatic lion, crocodiles, the Himalayan black bear, and many others. 

 

7- Chokhi Dhani:

Chokhi Dhani is a resort that, while providing to you comfort and hospitality, also aims to carefully preserve the traditional Rajasthani culture and its village-life. Chokhi Dhani has, for many years, brought urban travelers closer to the culture of old-time Rajasthani villages, where villagers still lead humble lives that are enriched with a focus on arts and culture. Situated off the national highway, just on the outskirts of Jaipur, the Chokhi Dhani is easy to reach and is definitely recommended for those looking to immerse themselves in culture. 

 

8- Masala Chowk:

A newer addition to the things you can do in this glorious city, Masala Chowk came to be to offer to visitors delicious Rajasthani street food, in one place. With modernized restaurants and other countries’ cuisines, the options to eat more traditional Rajasthani food had diminished - which is when Masala Chowk came to be. With over 20 restaurants at the Chowk, serving yummy street food, you can be sure to try out some of India’s tasty and spicy street food, here. 

 

9- Birla Temple:

The Birla temple also referred to as the Laxmi Narayan Temple, is located at the foot of the Moti Dungari Hill in Rajasthan, and is a Hindu temple. A modern-day wonder, this temple is built out of pure white marble and is a revered place of worship for many Hindus across the world. It was built by the prestigious Birla family and is one of the many Birla temples around the country. 

 

10- Albert Hall Museum:

This is the oldest museum of Rajasthan, opened in 1887, and is the state museum.

You can find metal art, arms and armory, pottery, sculptures, international art, ivory-crafts, and many others in the stupendous display of the works at the museum.
