Jaipur also known as the Pink City is the capital of the largest state of India in terms of area. It has some great places to see, most of them are of historical importance. They’re also an integral part of Jaipur’s rich culture.
Jaipur is a princely wonderland of culture and heritage, brimming with architectural gems.
Here are some amazing places you need to visit in Jaipur:
Jaipur is home to one of the India’s most visited forts- Amber Fort. It is located in Amer, a town which is located 11 kilometers from Jaipur. The sandstone and marble monolith is situated at the top of a small hill. Getting to Amber Fort involves a short uphill hike that’s well worth the effort.
When it comes to sightseeing, the views don’t get better than what you’ll find at Nahargarh Fort. Situated on the edge of the Aravali Hills, the fort allows you to have an amazing view of the city from the top. Along with Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh once formed a strong defense ring for the city.
Jal Mahal is a palace in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur city, the capital of the state of Rajasthan, India. The palace and the lake around it were renovated and enlarged in the 18th century by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Amber. The graceful palace seems to float atop the twinkling Man Sagar Lake-a calm sight compared to the rest of the frenzied city.
A complex of courtyards, gardens and buildings, the impressive City Palace is right in the centre of the Old City. The outer wall was built by Jai Singh II, but within it the palace has been enlarged and adapted over the centuries. There are palace buildings from different eras, some dating from the early 20th century. It is a striking blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture.
