"Jail Mahala"

2 days ago
This place is a kind of not so great piece of architecture except to the place it is built on.
The palace is built in between a lake.
The palace offers a good view and is overall worth visiting.
The palace is accessible only by the means of water transportation.

"Jaipur - The heritage of India"

6 days ago
Jaipur is a must visit to know the old Indian culture and be proud of
There are many awesome destinations from ancient forts to old city to many more things to explore
And if you can have company of local residents (not guides) then you can explore the city to the fullest
But yes, 1 most important tip while visiting Jaipur
Avoid driving in the city by yourself
City traffic follows one ways on many roads during different times of the day and with no signs at all, also GPS does not update random one ways made by city police
In these conditions driving is a pain
Just hire a cab from hotel you staying or OLA also offers city tour now
Go for it
City is too hot in day time, even in months of dec and jan, wear wisely

"Excellent city with a great historical past"

1 week ago
Jaipur need no introduction. Moreover, it belongs to the Royal state of Rajasthan which is known for its colourful culture, vibrance and excellent hospitality. City is known for its historical past, Unesco heritage sites and great Rajasthani food. Loved the trip as it was ushering in the new year and also romantic getaway.
Will return in the future again to visit the places I could not visit now.

"Great Indian Culture heritage Holiday"

1 week ago
Excellent Trip we had (self, wife and employed daughter). Visited all the important places.
Must Visit for the Heritage buffs
1. Birla Temple .. All marble, well maintained beautiful temple, open to all faiths.
2. City Palace
3. Amber Fort (or Amer Fort)
4. Hawa Mahala (get a sheet of self+spouse photographed with Hawa Mahala stamps of Rs 5/ (worth 60 rupees) for Rs 300/ per sheet.
5. Sanjay Sharma Museum a superb and a great labor of love institution.
6. Albert Hall Museum, again a superb museum.
Fortunately, there was a local Rajasthani Food and Folklore festival going on in Jaipur and we had a great time eating delicious Rajasthani food in a typical Thali.
Our experiences of Albert Hall and Sanjay Sharma museum was extraordinary. Particularly the Sanjay Sharma museum has many unique artifacts (Locks of all sizes, palm manuscripts and superb copies of manuscript Bhagvat Gita. ).
NOTE:HIRE a GUIDE or the AUDIO GUIDE at all places.
Jaipur is also call Pink city because of the colour of the buildings in the old city area. We had stayed in the city for couple of nights and were able to cover most of the places of interest like City Palace, Old City, Jantar Mantar, Amer Fort.
The old city area has a historical charm because of the architecture and color of the buildings. The traffic is very heavy there and we needed to pass the area to visit the places of interest.
We had a nice dinner at Choki Dhani where you are served traditional Rajasthani food which is very spicy and tasty. Also there are number of activities like folk dances, camel ride, magic shows etc which are placed in a village type of setting.
On the whole it was a relaxing family vacation and also a great shopping destination. Don't forget to take a look at the sarees and quilts which are world famous due to the rich vegetable colours used and hand printed using block prints.

"New, good and clean hotel"

2 weeks ago
It is a good and cheap hotel. The hotel is not too big but the room is a quite good and ambience to sleep well and take a rest in Jaipur. I really recommand this hotel. From the heritage place is not close. So if you want to see heritage places, you would better to hire rent a car or taxi. But Ola taxi cannot go to Amber Fort. But the hotel support or arrange the car by a good cost. The staff are kind and good.

"Good Experience"

2 weeks ago
I went to Jaipur with my family for 2 days trip. Jaipur has many places worth visiting. Amer fort is the best of all. Every place was overcrowded as we went on 31 December. So plan your tour accordingly. At Choki Dhani, you can have Rajasthani food served in the traditional style along with folk dance.

"Jaipur trip"

2 weeks ago
We are visiting Jaipur after 30 years. To Jaigarh fort, those days, we had to climb up. Now it is a motorable road right to top. Very convenient for tourists.
Both Nahargarh fort and Jaigarh fort are marvels of architecture. It just becomes unimaginable how they have made those massive forts in those good old days without the present day construction equipment.
Those forts speak of the rich heritage of India.
The Amer fort ( palace ), was something so wonderful that we could have spend 2 days admiring the intricacies of workmanship. They had planned everything. Safety from attackers, escape routes ( tunnel ), etc. The Sheesh Mahala in the fort was the best of craftmanship you can think of.

"A Trip to Jaipur"

2 weeks ago
I had been to Jaipur by train in the month of November 2016. Jaipur is the capital city of Rajasthan. The must-visit attractions around Jaipur include the iconic Jantar Mantar, Amber Fort and the BM Birla Planetarium and the City Palace. The Jantar Mantar was built by the revered king Sawai Jai Singh II. This majestic heritage site is now included as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This is the largest of India's 5 astronomical laboratories. Amber Fort was the capital of the erstwhile Kachhwaha rulers for a period of 7 years before the royal city of Jaipur came into existence. The time taken to build the Amber Fort was around 200 years and the 3 kings noteworthy of mention here are Raja Man Singh, Raja Jai Singh and Sawai Jai Singh, as under these princely kings, the royal Amber Fort was built over a period stretching to almost 200 years. The BM Birla Planetarium is equipped with modern and computerised projection systems facilitating spectacular audio-visual entertainment. This museum also has a science museum. The City Palace was built by Raja Sawai Jai Singh and the style of Architecture has a combination of both Mughal and Rajput style of Architecture.
