There is no doubt that Jaipur is among India's most popular tourist attractions. Below are the top places to see in and around Jaipur in a day, so that you can plan your trip.
Adorned with pink sandstone palaces, majestic forts and verdant green gardens against a scenic backdrop of the Aravalli hills, Jaipur represents the charm of our rich past and the sophistication of a flourishing metropolis. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II founded the city in 1727, when he decided to shift his capital from Amer. A renowned architect, astronomer, and avid scientist, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II built his capital with geometric precision and made Jaipur one of the most well planned cities in India. Today, his architectural genius is on display in almost every part of the old city and especially at Jantar Mantar and Amer Fort. There is wide range of good hotels & resorts in Jaipur for visitors where tourist can feel the comfort of home.
Jaipur sprawls out at the foot of Kalikoh hill crowned by the magnificent Amber fort. Tradition and modernity rub shoulders here. Turbaned men with curling mustachios, bejeweled Women in multi coloured, swirling skirts and youngsters in jeans jostle in it's colourful streets. Opulent palaces, Chaupars(big squares), astronomical observatories, temples and bazaars, vie with one another and give the city its distinctiveness. it is a SAWAI(one and a quarter, extra-ordinery)CITY.
Standing at a height, looking at the remnants of past, the walls that hold royalty and charisma of Rajputs. Amber Fort has always enchanted my senses. Amber Fort is located in Amber (Jaipur), which used to be the capital of the Kachhwaha clan, till Jaipur was made the official capital in 1727. The Amber Fort looks stunning, all-built in white marble and red sandstone. To add to its charm, Maotha Lake makes its foreground. The crystal mirror image of the Fort, on the still waters of the lake, seems to be a beautiful illusion.
