About Travel to Jaipur
With a population of over 3 million residents, Jaipur is the largest city in the arid Northern Indian state of Rajasthan. Jaipur is also the state’s most popular tourist destination with 5 major historical sites to visit:
- Albert Hall: Completed in 1887, this magnificent Indo-Saracenic style building, designed by a British architect, is a museum with 16 galleries featuring artefacts mainly from Rajasthan, but also from other parts of India as well as from other Asian countries and from Egypt.
- Hawa Mahal: The Hawa Mahal, also known as the Palace of the Winds, is the most iconic building in Jaipur. The palace was constructed in the late 18th Century to allow the women of the Royal Court a vantage point over the city whilst being hidden from the people below. The palace features hundreds of tiny windows shaped like funnels to promote airflow and keep the building cool, which was important in a time before air-conditioning because Rajasthan is a particularly hot part of India.
- Jantar Mantar: Constructed in the early 18th Century, the Jantar Mantar is an observatory which was used to study the movement of the sun and planets. The Jantar Mantar contains 19 instruments, including the world’s largest stone sundial.
- Amer Fort: Completed in the late 16th Century, this massive fort combines Mughal and Hindu architectural styles. The fort is located 13 km from Jaipur city centre.
- Nahargarh Fort: Built in the mid 18th Century on hills overlooking the city, this fort has a more elaborate decorative exterior than the city’s other forts. The fort was used as a Royal Palace at times and never came under attack.
The other notable feature of Jaipur is its colourful bazaars, in particular Bapu and Johari. A variety of goods are sold at these markets, particularly interesting are the jewellery items and the local style of cotton quilts. However, the main point of interest for many foreign visitors will be the street performers, such as the snake charmers, and the ox powered carts and the elephants. Jaipur’s bazaars are intense and distinct cultural experiences.
