About Travel to Jaipur
With 3 million permanent residents, Jaipur is by far the largest city in the north western state of Rajasthan. Jaipur is also Rajasthan’s busiest tourist destination, forming one corner of the ‘Golden Triangle’ for tour groups in India alongside Delhi and Agra. There’s a lot to see and do in Jaipur.
Jaipur was founded in 1727. This was when the local royal family moved their main residence from the Amer Fort, 11 km from modern day Jaipur city, into an area which would later become the centre of a very large city.
The Amer Fort was established in the 10th Century and continually improved over the next 700 years it was permanently occupied. The footprint of the fort is a massive 4 square kilometres, all of which was surrounded by a high defensive wall. Within these walls the gardens and palaces are arranged into 4 courtyards.
The Amer Fort attracts lots of visitors. We recommended taking a taxi or auto-rickshaw to visit the fort as local bus services tend to be very slow.
Attractions within Jaipur City
There are also 4 major attractions to visit in the city centre of Jaipur:
- Hawa Mahal: This small palace built in 1799 is probably the most iconic building in Jaipur. What is so special about this building is the front facade with it’s elaborately carved sandstone. The front of the building has a total of 953 small windows. The purpose of the large number of small openings is to allow air to circulate through the building. According to legend, the ladies who were isolated within the palace also used the windows to look down on the street below without being seen.
- City Palace: This royal residence was built in the early 18th Century. It’s the palace to which the ruling family relocated to after they moved out of the Amer Fort. City Palace is well worth visiting, particularly for its ornate interiors.
- Albert Hall Museum: This museum is located within a magnificent colonial era building completed in 1887. The building had been intended as an office block for the British colonial administration but ended up becoming one of the first major museums in India. The museum has 16 galleries, and a surprisingly extensive range of foreign artefacts along with artefacts and artwork from India.
- Jantar Mantar: The Jantar Mantar is an observatory built in the early 18th Century which has been certified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The observatory has 19 enormous astronomical instruments, including the world’s largest sundial. This is an interesting and unusual attraction related to the development of scientific thought in India.
