Palace on Wheels Day 02: Jaipur

Welcome to the land of the Rajputs as you arrive in the Pink City, Jaipur! Jaipur is one of the most beautiful and culturally rich cities of India. The Pink City has many beautiful monuments, forts and palaces such as the Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Amber Fort and the City Palace. Maharaja Jai Singh II founded Jaipur in the late 17th century. Jaipur is an amicable blend of traditional lifestyles and modern ways. You can enjoy magnificent sightseeing and shopping for exquisite artwork and handicrafts in Jaipur, a marvelous synthesis of heritage and contemporary trends.

The city tour of Jaipur begins with the Hawa Mahal. The Hawa Mahal, or the Palace of Winds, is a five-storied building with semi-octagonal and delicate honey combed sandstone windows. This is followed by a visit to the Amber Fort. The Amber fort was once the center of power of the erstwhile rulers of the Amber state. You will ascend the Amber fort on elephant back. You can also shop for Jaipur's famous jewelry, handicrafts, carpets, blue pottery and textiles. After lunch, you will be taken to the City Palace, home of the erstwhile Royal family. It follows a visit to the Jantar Mantar, the largest observatory built by the Sawai Jai Singh II.
