Itinerary

The 'Pink City' Jaipur is the land of royalty and vivid culture. Admire the class of Rajput architecture and colorful Rajasthani culture. In the morning, enjoy a Jeep ride to the Amber Fort. Casting its surreal reflection in the Maota Lake, the Amer Fort is an architectural wonder. The fort is also counted as the most excellent example of the Indo-Islamic architecture.

Hawa mahal is a palace in Jaipur, India. It is created of red and pink sandstone. The royal residence sits on the side of the City Palace, Jaipur, as well as includes the zenana, or ladies's chambers. The structure was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh.

Jantar Mantar was built by the Rajput king Sawai Jai Singh II and completed in 1738 AD. The name is derived from jantar means yantra and mantar means calculation. The Jaipur observatory was functional for seven years only, as the Maharaja was not very successful in deriving accurate, astronomical observations. It was later restored in the year 1901 and was declared as a national monument in the year 1948.The monument features masonry, stone and brass instruments that were built using astronomy and instrument design principles of ancient Hindu Sanskrit texts.

Jaipur City Palace, a palace with amazing cultural value and architectural excellence. The palace is adorned with a number of gardens, edifices, and courtyards within the complex of the palace which makes it worth visiting.

Possibly the most serene sight amidst the chaos of Jaipur is the beautiful Jal Mahal Jaipur, the Water Palace. This low-rise symmetrical palace, that once was a shooting lodge for the Maharajah, appears to float in the centre of Sagar Lake. The light sand coloured stone walls of the Jal Mahal Jaipur are at a stark contrast to the deep blue of the waters of the lake, while from the innards of the palace lush foliage sprouts.

Located on the Hill of Eagles, Jaigarh fort was built in 1726 AD by Sawan Jai Singh II. Jaigarh Fort is located at a height of 500 feet above sea level and offers panoramic views of the surrounding. It houses the world's largest cannon on the wheels called 'Jaivana Cannon'. There are various other attractions within the fort like Laxmi Vilas, Lalit Mandir, Aram Mandir and the Vilas Mandir. Jaigarh Fort is made-up of sandstones and is spread over an area of 3 km. Made with the purpose of protecting Amer Fort, Jaigarh fort is considered as the strongest monument of Jaipur. Also known by the name of 'Victory Fort', this place was considered as a storehouse of all the war amours, cannons, arms and ammunitions.
