“To know a country you have to look at it from the eyes of the long standing witnesses, best examples of which are the palaces and forts. These not only show you how the ancestors of that place thought and what they did, but also depict how the country has taken from its history and how much it has changed. For an experience as such, there is no better place than Jaipur.
Founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, the ruler of Amber, after whom the city has been named, Jaipur is also known as the Pink City of India.
The city is divided into various sectors. The Palace quarter encloses the Hawa Mahal palace complex, formal gardens, and a small lake. Nahargarh Fort, which was the residence of the King Sawai Jai Singh II, crowns the hill in the northwest corner of the old city. The observatory, Jantar Mantar, is one of the World Heritage Sites. Jaipur is included on the Golden Triangle tourist circuit, in India.
A visit to Jaipur is always filled with many sites to visit with forts such as the , Amer Fort, Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh Fort, City Palace, etc., temples such as the Govind Dev Ji Temple, Birla Temple, etc. and gardens like Ram Niwas Garden, Sisodia Rani Garden & Palace, Jawahar Circle garden. A must visit place, without which you would not completely be able to know India.”
