About Travel to Jaipur
Jaipur is India’s ‘pink city’, so called because of the red and pink sandstone used in the construction of its most famous buildings, and in contrast to the Mughal era buildings of Agra built from white marble. Jaipur is the largest city in Rajasthan and the most popular with tourists. Jaipur has many hotels, restaurants and exciting markets, such as Bapu and Johari, noted for their cotton quilts and jewellry as well their street performers.
Jaipur has five major attractions, and a number of minor attractions, which merit a visit of at least two days:
- Amer Fort: Located 13 km from Jaipur city centre this massive fort dates back to the 16th Century. The Amer Fort is the most visited of the forts surrounding Jaipur and combines Mughal and Hindu architectural features.
- Hawa Mahal: Also known as the ‘Palace of the Winds’, the Hawa Mhal is the most iconic and unusual of historical buildings in Jaipur. The Hawa Mahal was constructed in the 18th Century as place for the women of the royal court to observe the street below without being seen. This curved structure features nearly a thousand small windows which allow air to flow through the building keeping it cool.
- Jantar Mantar: The Jantar Mantar is an 18th Century observatory featuring many fascinating antiquated scientific instruments, such as the world’s largest stone sundail.
- Nahargarh Fort: Unlike the Amer Fort, the Nahargarh Fort was not built as a military installation, but rather as an elaborately decorated palace. The Nahargarh Fort was constructed during a more peqaceful period in the 18th Century.
- Albert Hall: The Albert Hall is a British designed building originally intended to use as governmental office, but instead turned into a musuem on completion. The Albert Hall features 16 galleries and is considered to be one of the best museums in India.
