About Travel to Jaipur
Jaipur is Rajasthan’s largest city and also the most popular tourist destination in this part of India. Rajashtan is a city with around 3 million permanent residents and a lively atmosphere, particularly in it’s many market places such as the Bapu and Johari Bazaars. What makes Jaipur so popular with visitors is its many grand buildings, some of which date back as far as the 10th Century. Many of the older of the buildings have a very distinct architecture both in terms of the building materials used, often red or pink sandstone, and in respect of the intricate design work.
Jaipur has 10 well known tourist attractions that fall into 4 categories: forts, temples, palaces and museums. The forts are all located outside the city centre. The oldest and most famous of these is the Amer Fort, established in the 10th Century before the city of Jaipur became the principle administrative centre. The two other major forts are the Jaigarh Fort, and the Nahargarh Fort, which both built to defend Jaipur.
The main museum in the city is the Albert Hall Museum, which is housed within a large 19th Century building designed and built under the direction of British architects and engineers. The Jantar Mantar, which is an 18th Century observatory, is also worth visiting.
The three main palaces in Jaipur are the beautiful Hawa Mahal, which features a facade with 953 small and intricately carved windows, the large City Palace, and the Jal Mahal, which is a palace in a lake. Sightseers can’t go inside the Jal Mahal but they can enjoy it from the outside by taking a boat trip on the lake.
The two most impressive temples to visit in Jaipur are the 15th Century Galtaji Temple, located in the hills near Jaipur, and the more recently constructed Birla Mandir, which is built largely in white marble.
