About Travel to Jaipur
Jaipur is the capital city of the north western state of Rajasthan. Rajasthan is mostly arid and the Thar desert in the west of Rajasthan forms a natural border with Pakistan which is patrolled by Indian border guards on camels. Jaipur itself is, however, far more acessible and is a major destination for both domestic and international tourists.
Forts in Jaipur
Jaipur has three striking forts surrounding the city itself. The largest of these is the Amer Fort, the footprint of which is around 4 dquare kilometres. Despite its being a military installation and very large, the exterior of the fort has some intricate design features, and inside are ornate palaces and formal gardens. The Amer Fort was established in the 10th Century and was the permanent residence of the local rulers until the 18th Century when they moved into Jaipur City itself.
In Jaipur itself the most iconic building is the Hawa Mahal, or the Palace of the Winds. The Hawa Mahal is a small palace completed in 1799. The striking feature of the Hawa Mahal is the facade on the front of the building overlooking the road. 953 small openings has been intricately carved into this side of building from sandstone. The primary purpose of the tiny windows was to allow air flow through the building. According to legend the ladies of the court also used the windows as a vantage point from where they could look down onto the street without being seen.
Museums in Jaipur
Jaipur’s major museum is the excellent Albert Hall Museum. The Albert Hall Museum is located within a grand British designed building completed in 1887. The building was originally intended to be used as government offices, however, on the insistence of the local ruler the building was repurposed to house a museum dedicated to the history of the region. The museum currently has 16 galleries with displays of artifacts from across India, as well as other parts of the world including Ancient Egypt.
The other major museum is the Jantar Mantar which is a well preserved 19th Century observatory. The most impressive part of the Jantar Mantar is its 19 enormous astronomical instruments once used to track the movement of the sun, moon and stars.
