A Visit to Pink City Jaipur


Travel / Thursday, March 8th, 2018

Hello from Jaipur

My recent coolest road trip to Jaipur has been a great refreshment! I’m one of those people who urge for break from regular life and derive true pleasure in travelling new destinations. Rather than partying on weekends if I had a choice I would prefer getaways as Delhi has endless options for it.

The delhi to jaipur is about 270 kms long, and takes about 5 hours to cover it. Jaipur expressway is so magnificent and brings your way so many visual delight that makes you believe it’s never about the destination, but the journey in the end! I did not added much of it glimpse in my social network platforms as I was completely off internet.

Jaipur stated as Pink city is actually pink and beautiful in real manner. The place i chose to stay was The Theme Hotel with views of Jaipur International Airport, this beautiful and contemporary styled hotel is apprx.7-8km from Birla Mandir Temple.

Next morning I planned to visit  Nahargarh Fort which was 14-15km away from the hotel. The entry ticket for Rs 50/- per head was applicable for Indians and Rs200/-per head for foreigner tourist. Nahargarh Fort which is located along the Aravalli hills overlooking a beautiful lake in Jaipur, Rajasthan. Meaning of Nahargarh is abode of Tigers and it was named as Nahargarh after the spirit of Rathore, Nahar Singh.

It was a beautiful historical fort and home to Jaipur wax museum and sheesh mahal. We had heard stories of strange phenomenal activities occurred during the construction of the fort. So it is considered to be one of haunted and jinxed place, hence preferred to be visited in day hours.

Talking about Sheesh Mahal (glass palace) it is mesmerizing piece of art, made from the hand cut glass giving the glimpse of Mughal and Rajputs ancient architecture.Another attraction of this fort is wax museum, which has wax statues of many well known personalities and national heroes with artistic backdrops, depicting their stories.Along with being a historical architecture site, the place has good footfall of tourist all day so it is quite well maintained and has a food court and restaurant in the same premises. One can easily spend an entire day here exploring the beauty of collective historical pieces around this Fort Worth cherishing, making it a perfect getaway destination for weekends or holidays.The view from the top was amazing. You can see whole city from there. We enjoyed a lot.

After exploring the beautiful architecture of Nahargarh Fort for 3 hours, I proceeded to iconic Jal Mahal. As per the name, it was an Palace in the middle of Sagar Lake. The light sand coloured stone walls of the Jal Mahal Jaipur are at a stark contrast to the deep blue of the waters of the lake, while from the innards of the palace lush foliage sprouts. The beautiful scenery of this place makes it the best photographed place in Jaipur.

The other day I visited beautiful Hawa Mahal (The Palace of The Winds) It is one of the most famous tourist attractions and a prominent landmark of the city, renowned for it’s rich cultural and architectural history. This five-storey building in the shape of a crown of Lord Krishna with 953 jharokhas or windows and a beautifully decorated façade resembling a honeycomb of a beehive that gives one a feel of the rich heritage of the Rajputs.

I also managed some time to shop from the local streets of jaipur which was all full of colourful garments, jewelleries, leather shoes, antiques etc. I picked up few of traditional lehariya and bandhani dupattas, lac bangles and cute dancing puppets from there.

My last destination of Jaipur dairy was Chokhi Dhani. The entry ticket to this iconic famous stop was Rs 700/- per head and trust me when i say it – its totally worth it. This entire place is themed around Rajasthan Village life, culture, and their variety of food. There are open-air food joints, where you can enjoy a tasty Rajasthani thali, plus a bevy of traditional entertainment – dancers, acrobats, snack stalls – and adventure-park-like activities for kids to swing on, slide down and hide in. All people serving inside Choki Dhani were very polite and pleasing to all the travellers there.

In short this trip was completely what i was looking for out of my regular life and Jaipur you are beyond beautiful.
