Jaipur : Sightseeing

On the last day of my Jaipur trip I decided to explore the Jaipur city monuments. On priority basis we zeroed on Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Jantar Mantar, Albert Hall Museum and Birla Mandir. But lastly we were able to cover only three of them living City palace and Jantar Mantar behind.

How to reach monuments in Jaipur?
All the important monuments in Jaipur can be covered easily by either public or personal vehicles. Birla Temple, Museum Albert Hall, Hawa mahal, Jal Mahal and the forts are mostly on the same route and you need not to divert much.
Places to see in Jaipur
Hawa Mahal
Our first destination was Hawa Mahal. Here I took the guided audio tour which is an incredible option to explore this architectural marvel.

Hawa Mahal was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh, and designed in the form of the crown of lord Krishna. It is a unique five storey structure with 953 jharokhas (small windows).

It was built of red and pink sand stone. After every few meters there is a mark for guided audio tour and numbered accordingly. It’s a must have if somebody is interested in history and don’t want to hire a guide.

Inside Hawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal is situated in the heart of the main market of Jaipur. There was a roundabout and 8 paths were crossing each other outside Hawa Mahal. Wherever you take your eyes it’s all pink. What a city! A delight for heritage lovers.

Albert Hall Museum

Our next destination was Albert Hall Museum. It is the oldest museum of the state and functions as the State Museum of Rajasthan. It was named after King Edward VII (Albert Edward), who visited the city as the Prince of Wales.

The building is situated in Ram Niwas Garden. It is also called the Government Central Museum. Here again I took the guided audio tour though it was very long and I had to finish it in a rush.

Birla Temple

The last stop was Birla Temple. I can rate this best among the Birla Temples I have seen in Delhi, Bhopal and Patna. Though the one in Delhi is quite big but its white structure outnumbers others.

Where to stay?

Jaipur Hotels vary to suit all needs and preferences. Ranging from star hotels in Jaipur to low cost budget hotels, Jaipur has it all. There are a good number of budget hotels in Jaipur that offer good comfort and facilities at affordable prices.

What to eat in Jaipur?

Recognised as a Rajasthan speciality, Dal-batti-churma, is a wholesome Rajasthani meal. A deep-fried sweet dish, Ghewar is in great demand during festivals. What is interesting about Rajasthan is the variety of rotis one gets, even in the smallest eating place. Bajre Ki Roti, Makki Ki Roti, Jau-Channa Ki Roti, Besan Ki Roti, Cheelra, Paratha, Puri, Methi Puri, Rumali Roti… the list is endless. Gatte ki subji, Rajasthani curry, Mangori, Pakodi and Ker Sangari, the traditional subjis, are part of the daily meals here. A papad - plain or masala – is a must to sum up meals, as a tradition in Rajasthan.

Best Bargains in Jaipur!

Just behind Hawa Mahal, there is a place which has one of the largest shops of Jaipur and belongs to some trust related to Queen of Jaipur. I bought few bed sheets and a blanket which was reasonably priced and had some quality stuff. One can also buy any kind of Gem here. The street outside Hawa Mahal is famous for shopping. There was a famous ‘Zohari Bazar’ for gems and jewelry.
It was my third day since I left Delhi, and neither I was on hills nor in the forest and still I was enjoying. It could happen only in Jaipur. This is another side of Jaipur. I clicked this image outside of city palace which showcases the royalty and glamour of high style living and just outside the walls this was what we called harsh reality. Most of the tourists face this kind of situation, especially those with families.
It was time to call off the day as we planned to leave early morning for Delhi. Completely satisfied with our excursion we all decided to come back to Jaipur whenever get a chance.

  3. These hosting companies are killing off your
    profitable business opportunity. Brevity: Keep the word count low by
    cutting down on all unnecessary and redundant words. If you
    start out on your own you would need to figure everything out alone and you would not have anyone to turn
    to for help.
