Jaipur Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences
While on India tours, visit Jaipur which is located southwest of Delhi and is the largest city in the state of Rajasthan in northwest India. Built in the 18th century as India’s ‘first planned city’, Jaipur is nicknamed ‘the pink city’ for its coloured buildings. Initially painted red to imitate the red sandstone architecture of the Mughal cities, they were repainted in terracotta pink to welcome the Prince of Wales in 1876.
Nearly one seventh of Jaipur is comprised of City Palace, in the Old City. A blend of traditional Rajput and Mughal architecture, this palace complex features a series of courtyards, gardens, buildings, and various palatial structures, including Chandra Mahal, home to the present Maharajah of Jaipur, all to be enjoyed on a trip to india.
The restored Jal Mahal is a beautifully architectured palace that sits in the centre of Man Sagar Lake, offering magnificent views.
Built in 1799, as part of the City Palace, is Hawa Mahal, also known as Palace of Winds. An extension of the Zenana (women) chamber, this five-storey structure features over 950 windows, and was used by the royal ladies to observe everyday life on the street while not being seen themselves.
Jaipur is filled with historical forts, palaces, temples, gardens, and various monuments, all making this a popular tourist attraction on Indian travel.
