Jaipur Travel

Jaipur Travel PackagesJaipur, the Rose Pink capital city of Rajasthan, was founded by Sawai Jai Singh II who ruled 1688 to 1744. He was a great warrior, visionary in science and astrology. The opulent city was planned and constructed under the co-architectural guidance of Vidyadhar. Jaipur is a royal city surrounded with stunning backdrop on all sides by rugged hills, crowned romancingly with ancient forts Nahargarh, Amber, Jaigarh and Moti Dungri, City Palace, Observatory, Hawa Mahal and enclosed by embattled walls. Houses with latticed windows line the streets with their rose pink colour lending enchantment to the scene which is almost magical at sunset.

Jaipur forms the most chosen tourism of Golden Triangle Delhi-Agra-Jaipur. Today it is a prominent business centre for gems, jewellery and handicrats with all the trapping of modern metropolis but yet flavoured strongly with an age-old charm that never fails to surprise a traveller.

Places of Tourist Interest in Jaipur

City Palace

Located in the heart of the walled city, The City Palace Complex gives you an idea about the farsightedness of the founder of Jaipur Sawai Jai Singh. He left behind a legacy of some of the most imposing and magnificent architecture, art and craft structure in the city. Sawai Jai Singh built its many buildings but some of some of the structures were also built by later rulers and some of them are even dated in the in the twentieth century too. The palace is a blend of Mughal and Rajasthani architecture and the royal family still lives in a part of the palace.

Jantar Mantar

Across the road from the palaces is the famous JANTAR MANTAR one of the five observatories in India . Built by Sawai Jai Singh, this is one of the largest and the best preserved. A passionate hobby of the king in the field of Astronomy, numerology, insighted him to execute this observatory and with the help of skilled labourers, they managed to create a collection of complex astronomical instruments chiselled out of stone and most of which continues to provide accurate information to this day. The most striking instrument is the Brihat Samrat yantra Sundial, an imposing yellow edifice to the far right of the observatory complex which has a 27m high gnomon arm set at an angle of 27degree.The shadow this casts moves up to 4m in an hour, and aids in the calculation of local and meridian pass time and various attributes of the heavenly bodies, including declination the angular distance of a heavenly body from the celestial equator and altitude. This highlight of the observatory has made it a centre of attraction for the tourist visiting Jaipur

Albert Hall, Jaipur TravelsAlbert Hall

Located just outside the walled city is the sprawling Ram Niwas garden, which has always been a place for recreational activities since the reign of Sawai Ram Singh ji . This exquisitely designed garden with forcentry doors and a huge complex with small pools and fountains, flourishing lawns and beautiful flower beds all around was basically a famine relief project. It mostly attracted the British families where they entertained their guest and families quite often with the lavish gowns of the Men and formal colourful attires of the nobels and the high society club members, this park would come alive with the setting sun.
