About Travel to Jaipur
Jaipur is the largest city in the Western desert state of Rajasthan. It is also a massively popular tourist destination. There’s lots of things to see and do in Jaipur, and a visit to Jaipur is often combined with a visit to Agra and Delhi on many tour group itineries. We suggest allowing at least two full days to see the many magnificent buildings and local markets in Jaipur.
The Amer Fort, located 13 km by road to the North East of Jaipur Junction Railway Station, was established in the 10th Century. Until the late 18th Century, the local rulers lived in the Amer Fort. It was only during the 18th Century that the political situation in the region changed in a way that allowed Jaipur’s royal family to move out of a military installation and into the city itself. From that point onward Jaipur flourished. It took just over 2 centuries for a once small town to become a city of 3 million people.
The Amer Fort is huge. The complex covers an area of around 4 square kilometres and is located on a small hill. The interior fort is divided into 4 courtyards, each with verdant gardens bordered by elaborate palace buildings.
Jaipur’s next most famous building is the Hawa Mahal, also known as the Palace of the Winds.
Constructed in 1799, the Hawa Mahal is one of the buildings created after the local royal family left the Amer Fort. The most striking feature of this city centre palace is its facade which is elaborately carved from soft red sandstone. In particular, the facade has 953 intricately carved windows. The windows allow air to circulate through the building. The windows also provided a vantage for the ladies of the royal court, who were forbidden to be seen in public, to discreetly look down on the street below.
