Along with Agra and Delhi, Jaipur makes up India's Golden Triangle, and is truly one of the country's most captivating cities. The historic center is known as the Pink City and ancient walls still enclose its ruddy Rajasthani architecture (refurbished for the Prince of Wales in 1876) and brightly coloured bazaars. The capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur ... Read more

One of the most beautiful hotels during my stay in jaipur. The interior design of the rooms reflects a great combination of classic style with an indian touch.

Without a shadow of a doubt, add Jaipur to your list. It's one of the most beautiful cities in India. The heat can be oppressive though,

The pink city is a must -- part of the Golden Triangle with Delhi and Agra. Great shopping, and be sure to stop in at the Amer Fort and if you're feeling brave, the nearby monkey temple.

I really, really want to not like Jaipur. It has all the usual undesirable qualities of an Indian big city -- traffic, squalor, heat -- but stands out for its exceptional level of hassle from touts, rickshaw drivers and others, to the point of being essentially constant in many of the main tourist areas. And even though I *really* want to hate Jaipur for all these reasons, I don't: Jaipur is great. The city's countless forts, monuments and palaces are fascinatingly historic and exceptionally beautiful -- there are few other spots on the subcontinent with as deep an assortment of sights on offer. The numerous markets of the old Pink City are lovely and the architecture of the Pink City itself delightful, and if you can handle the touts and the harrassment, Jaipur has a truly exceptional amount to offer.

The glorious pink city of India was once ruled by the Rajputs and royal families; hence, the traditional cultures are extensively followed throughout the city even today. Its royal charm and heritage value are instant crowd-pullers. It attracts travelers with its stunning remnants of bygone era. Ancient monuments, architectural buildings, beautiful palaces, museums, temples and gardens, attract a large number of people.

Amber Fort it is the best attraction of the town and is so rich in history. The fort boasts of stunning mirror work and exquisite carvings. Jaipur tourist attractions include City Palace. It is a marvelous fusion of conventional Rajasthan and mughal architecture. There are many beautiful structures inside the palace complex which lure visitors. Jantar Mantar which was constructed by Maharajah Jai SinghII, which is still used for measuring time, predicting eclipses, tracking stars in their orbits and determining the celestial altitudes of various heavenly bodies. The grand construction of this structure attracts visitors, scientists, architect and historians from different parts of the world.

Jaigarh Fort also known as Victory Fort, well known for being a home to the biggest cannon in the world. Hawa Mahal built for Rajput women. It is unique architecture and design. The purpose behind the construction of this beautiful building is to let royal ladies to see daily life in the street below without being seen. Albert Hall Museum, it has collection of coins, arms, weapons, ornaments and costumes belonging to the rulers of bygone centuries. Jaipur is known for its vibrant culture and colorful festivals. Elephant festival of Jaipur is the most famous of all and attracts large number tourists every year.

Jaipur fondly referred to as ‘the pink city’ is one place that you do need to visit once in your lifetime. I was amazed at its vibrant ambience. This was once a mighty Rajputana citadel which is clearly evident in its massive forts and heritage structures. Visiting Amber Fort was the highlight of my Jaipur Tour though I didn’t take the elephant ride which Maharajas of Jaipur traditionally took to go to fort premises. I also visited City Palace which once again is a grand fortress. Nearby is the UNESCO World Heritage Site Jantar Mantar which I also visited along with Hawa Mahal.

In the evening I went to Chokhi Dhani and it was an awesome experience to say the least. Chokhi Dhani is heritage and history of Rajasthan in a microcosm with an array of cultural and folk performances, puppet show and the concluding 5 course Marwari dinner is truly amazing. This is a must visit place in Jaipur.
