    Jaipur Tours Itinerary

    1. Morning

      For the morning itinerary, it is suggested to exploring the historic centre of Jaipur, which is often referred to as the Pink City. Jaipur is a chaotic mix of sights, sounds and smells, all of this can be very draining for visitors new to India especially when combined with the intense heat of the dry season. Thankfully all of the main tourist sights are close together and Jaipur follows a grid/block layout so is simple to navigate. Highlights of the morning include:The magnificent City Palace, which is the home of the Maharaja. This sprawling complex comprises of grand state rooms, interesting museums and decorative gates. The museum rooms haves displays ranging from historic art through to armoury – there is a lot to see in the palace so expect to expend between 1-2 hours here.

      The Hawa Mahal, a multi windowed, lattice like façade of the City Palace which is best viewed from the Siredeori Bazaar. From the small windows the wives of the Maharaja could spy daily life without being seen by the commoners. The lattice work played another useful feature as it channelled up the cooler air and provided a constant breeze in the state rooms, hence the name of the Place of the winds. It does not take long to view the Hawa Mahal as only the exterior is worthy of a visit.

      While walking between the city Palace, the Hawa Mahal and the Jantar Mantar take time to view the city walls and ornate city gates. All of the buildings within this central district are painted a uniform terracotta pink colour, which represent power and welcoming.

      The Jantar Mantar is the third sight of the morning and should only be visited if there is sufficient time. The Jantar Mantar are a series of astronomical instruments used by the Mogul’s to predict the future. The stand out feature is the world’s largest sun dial, where the actual movement of the sun can be seen (6cm per minute at midday)

    2. Afternoon

      The Amer Fort is one of the most import fortifications in Rajasthan and combines impenetrable defences with intricate marble detail. The fort clings to the sides of the steep hill and provides commanding views over the entire region while inside are sumptuous rooms and symmetrical gardens. The Amer for is the highlight of Jaipur and sufficient time should be provided to explore this wonderful palace. The fort is 7km north of Jaipur and an auto rickshaw or taxi is required for the journey from the centre of Jaipur.On the return from Amer fort stop to view the Jal Mahal, the water palace. The palace was constructed as a duck hunting lodge by the Maharaja in the 18th century and appears to be floating on the still waters of Lake Sagar. The palace can only be viewed from the banks of the lake so only takes around 20 minutes to view.

      The final suggestion for the afternoon is watching the sunset over Jaipur from the Sun Temple (Surya Mandir). The location of the temple provides panoramic views of Jaipur and on a clear day the city is bathed in golden by the setting sun, and there are monkeys to feed!
