Find 31 exclusive activities/experiences to undertake in Jaipur



Jaipur represents conquest, faith and everything else that one looks for, as Jaipur is a unique world of its own. Rich in its historical heritage, every corner of Jaipur holds an interesting antidote and touch of old-world charm. Not many know this but it was the first planned city in India. A city of deserts, royalty and culture, Jaipur and its people thrive in its vibrant and awe-inspiring surroundings. The people adorn traditional attires that reflect their free spirits and grandiose past. Colorful turbans, dhoti pyjama, ghagras, colourful bangles and fancy mojris are some of the intricately stylish things Jaipur has to offer its people. It's a good idea to go shopping in Jaipur while you're at the local bazaar.

Flooded with numerous tourists every year, these are some places to visit in Jaipur that are really awe-inspiring.

Nahargarh
 
Nahargarh Fort, also known as Tiger Fort is perched high on the rugged Aravalli Hills overlooking Jaipur city. It found fame after major portions of a song in the movie "Rang De Basanti" were filmed here. It is famous for the panoramic view of the city it has to offer and also the glorious sunset. It is indeed a heavenly sight.  

City Palace
 
Upon visiting the magnificent City Palace, it’s easy to see that the royal family of Jaipur was one of the richest in India. The Peacock Gate is exquisite, and contains an alluring display of detailed workmanship featuring bright peacocks. Also inside the City Palace complex lie a museum, art gallery, and interesting displays of royal costumes and old Indian weapons.  

Hawa Mahal  
The intricate and fascinating facade of the Palace of the Winds is probably Jaipur’s most recognized building. Wind used to flow through the openings, giving the palace its name. This however is no longer the case with the Wind Palace as most of the windows have been sealed shut. Legend has it that the palace, which overlooks the main street of Jaipur’s lively Old City was built so that the women of the royal household could watch the streets below without being observed.

Jantar Mantar
 
Jantar Mantar, literally means “Calculation Instrument“. More than just a curious collection of sculptures, each structure at the intriguing Jantar Mantar observatory has a specialized astronomical function. It has a shadow that moves roughly the width of a person’s hand every minute. It is a profound display of how quickly time does in fact go...

The pink city of Jaipur presents you with scrumptious cuisines that are known throughout India; dishes like Dal Bati Churma and Missi Roti, and sweets like Ghevar, Feeni, Gajak, Chauguni ke laddu and Moong Thal to name a few. Rajasthani cuisine is full of nutrition since it's made in ghee and butter, and is generally vegetarian. Jaipur's a great city for food tours.   

Thus, the culture of Jaipur presents us with a holistic view of not only Rajasthan but also with the culture of India.
