Stop At: City Palace of Jaipur, Tripolia Bazar Near Jantar Mantar, Jaipur 3023002 India
Your first stop, the City Palace, lies in the heart of Jaipur. The whole complex is wonderfully laid out with large courtyards, balconies, cupolas, arched entrances and gardens. The architecture is a combination of the Rajput and Mughal style of construction. The museum here displays the rich cultural heritage of the royal family of Jaipur. This is captured through multiple miniature paintings, textiles, garments, books & manuscripts, carpets, palanquins, and weapons, all of which date back to the 15th century.
Your next stop will be the Jantar Mantar. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II had a passion for astronomy. Driven by this, he decided to build five astronomical observatories in different cities of India, one of which lies in Jaipur. The observatory at Jaipur, built in 1728, is the largest and best preserved of them all. The observatory is home to a curious collection of sculptures which enable the calculation of many astronomical and astrological events such as eclipses. Each of these structures was built after a relentless study of books, manuscripts, and discussions on this subject with multiple scholars.
The last stop on this tour will be the Hawa Mahal. Built in 1799, the Palace of Winds is a significant landmark of Jaipur city. The five-storey building is pink in colour and was built to enable the women of the harem to witness the activities of the outside world without being openly seen.
