The places which you cannot afford to miss, If you are at jaipur

‘You do not need magic to get lost, all you need is a destination’ and ‘The Pink City’ is one of the best cities in the world to get lost. They say it’s more like a puzzle that you never want to escape after entering. The city is the capital of ‘The Designers State’- Rajasthan in India. Jaipur is surrounded by the ‘Aravallis Hills’ and is one of the oldest planned cities in India. It is one of those cities which speaks for itself and does not require a travel guide. The royal city has always been among the most visited places in India by tourists from all across the globe. It is very hard to point out something not- attractive and uninteresting in the whole city. Everything about the city is gorgeous whether the extravagant city palace or the vibrant and chaotic bazaars and after the whole day of exploring, the sunset of the Nahargarh fort is nothing but a wonder.

Jaipur has a rich heritage which is epitomized by its exotic palaces, havelis, gardens, and forts. It is very difficult to list the best visiting locations in the city and simultaneously very hard and disrespectful to the ones which are left.

This is the reason I would suggest that the whole city is a gem for the tourists to explore with the below-mentioned places as the Musgravite among those gems.

Amer Fort

There is nothing denying the fact that the Amer Fort tops the list. Situated 10 km north of Jaipur, the fort sits on the top of the Aravalli Hills bright and handsome. It is the real home of the royal Rajputs before Jaipur was created and contains majestic palaces, gardens, temples, halls, and others making it a complete fantasy world. The fascinating scenery of the Maota Lake and the exclusive artwork adds to the beauty of this place. Other famous points include Sheesh Mahal, Man Singh Mahal, Diwan-e-Aam, are some of the great places to enjoy in the evening light and sound show.

City Palace

The city palace is one of those places that shows the how wealthy the royalty of Jaipur was. The Palace is a blend of both The Rajput and Mughal architecture. Dewan-e-Khas contains to silver containers which are known to be the world’s biggest by The Guinness Book. Mubarak Mahal or the Sawai Man Singh II Museum is one of the hottest points here as it contains weapons, costumes, paintings and manuscripts of the Rajput dynasty. A part of the City Palace is still occupied by the Royal Rajput Family of Jaipur.

HawaMahal

One of the finest representations of how good and advanced was the architecture of the Rajput era was. The building is highly famous and has five floors with over 950 windows named as ‘jharokhas’. The purpose of building this structure was to provide a panoramic view of the street to the Rajput women without being visible to the people outside on the streets. Winds used to flow from these small windows which gave the name to the palace- The HawaMahal. But most of the windows are sealed now.

JantarMantar

JantarMantar gives us the idea about the evolution of the science and technology in the Rajput era. The JantarMantar can be regarded as the calculation instrument of that time. The place contains 14 builds in total which collectively functions to measure time, foretell eclipses, and also track the stars. The main attraction of the place is the SamratYantra Sundial. The structure at a height of 27 meters is a shadow clock which can make you realize how quickly the time goes by.
