About Travel to Jaipur
Jaipur is the largest city in North Eastern state of Rajasthan, with over 3 million inhabitants. Rajasthan is an arid part of India located on the border with Pakistan. Rajasthan has its own distinctive history and culture, and iconic architecture featuring red and pink sandstone. Jaipur has several of the best examples of that architectural style and is a very popular as a tourist destination as a consequence. Travel agents use the term ‘Golden Triangle’ to describe the three destinations in India with the most impressive visitor attractions, and Jaipur is one of those three destinations along with Delhi and Agra.
Jaipur’s most famous palaces and musems are coveniently located in the city centre, which allows visitors to explore several sites in one day. The most famous building in Jaipur is the Hawa Mahal, also known as the Palace of the Winds. The Hawa Mahal features a highly ornate facade with 953 windows carved from sandstone with elaborate detailing. The windows served the dual purpose of allowing air to circulate around the the building and to provide a vantage point from where the ladies of the royal court could look out onto the street without being seen. Other palaces in the city centre include the large City Palace and the Jal Mahal, which is located in a lake.
Jaipur has two fantastic attractions that will appeal to people interested in history. The first of these is the Jantar Mantar, which is an 18th Century observatory with a series of very large astromical instruments used for tracking the movement of the planets and stars. Also of interest is the Albert Hall Museum. This museum is housed within a 19th century building which was intended for use by the British Government but ended up become the permanent home of 16 galleries features exhibits with artefacts both from India and and other parts of the world. The Albert Hall Museum, for example, has notable artefacts from Egypt.
The three forts for which Jaipur is also famous are located outside of the city centre. The most visited of the three, the Amer Fort, is 11 km by road from Jaipur city centre and most independent travellers will choose to take a taxi or a auto-rickshaw to travel there as local public transport services are generally very slow and uncomfortable. The Amer Fort was established in the 10th Century and consists of high defensive walls around 4 main courtyards with gardens, palaces and governmental buildings.
