Jaipur Sightseeing Places
Rajasthan's beautiful Pink City Jaipur, was the stronghold of a clan of rulers whose three hill forts and series of palaces in the city are important attractions. Known as the Pink City because of the colour of the stone used exclusively in the walled city, Jaipur's bazaars sell embroidered leather shoes, blue pottery, tie and dye scarves and other exotic wares. Western Rajasthan itself forms a convenient circuit, in the heart of the Thar desert which has shaped its history, lifestyles and architecture.
After going ‘ooh and aah’ over the various architectural marvels witnessed in the form of palaces and their expansive gardens, objects inside museums, and forts, take some time to visit Jantar Mantar, the home of 19 royal astronomical instruments. Built in 1734, it is listed as a heritage site by UNESCO.
