Jaipur’s many salmon-colored buildings and temples have resulted in a name: the “Pink City.” Unwrap an urban landscape of vivid colors and history while visiting hilltop forts, lavish palaces, bustling bazaars and thrilling festivals.
Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II founded the city in 1727. Its planned layout revolves around the Old City, recognizable with its fortified surrounding walls. Walk the wide streets or travel between attractions cheaply by rickshaw.
Learn about the lives of Jaipur’s elite women at Hawa Mahal, a multi-windowed palace with a pink façade. Nearby, the Jantar Mantar observatory preserves a collection of 18th-century astronomical instruments. Just a short walk west, photograph the ancient Rajasthani and Mughal architecture of the City Palace. Take a rest in the palace courtyards, surrounded by Persian gardens.
Take on the bazaars of Old City and work on your bargaining skills with a distinct Indian twist. Find handmade jewelry in Johari Bazaar or discover the affluent mansions of Jaipur’s cotton merchants. The gem carving stalls of Pahar Ganj are well worth a visit. Barter for textiles and sarongs in Bapu Bazaar, or perfumes in Kishanpole Bazaar. Lunchtime hunger can be satisfied at hundreds of curry stalls around town.
