Weekend Jaipur Tour
Duration : 2 Nights/ 3 Days
Destinations Covered : Delhi - Jaipur - Delhi
Day 1: Delhi - Jaipur (260 kms)
Drive from Delhi towards Jaipur. It is a bustling capital city and a business
centre with all the trapping of modern metropolis but yet flavored strongly
with an age-old charm that never fails to surprise a traveler. The old Jaipur
painted in Pink can grip any visitor with admiration. Stunning backdrop
of ancient forts Nahargarh, Amer, Jagarh and Moti Dungri are dramatic testimonials
of the bygone era and a reminder of their lingering romance.
Overnight at hotel.
Day 2: Jaipur
After breakfast visit the pink city viewing.
The City Palace: In the heart of the old city is former royal residence
built in a blend of the Rajasthani and Mughal styles. The palace also has
an art gallery with an excellent collection of miniature paintings, carpets,
royal paraphernalia and rare astronomical works in Arabic, Persian, Latin
and Sanskrit, acquired by Sawai Jai Singh II to study astronomy in detail.
Jantar Mantar : A stone observatory. Largest of Jai Singh's five remarkable
observatories. Its complex instruments, whose setting and shapes are scientifically
designed, represent the high points of medieval Indian astronomy.
Hawa Mahal : Built in 1799 A.D. the Hawa Mahal or Palace of Winds
is a major Rajput landmark. This five storey building along the main street
of the old city is in pink splendor with semi octagonal and delicately honey
combed sandstone windows.
Amber Palace and Shila Mata Temple : A beautiful complex of palaces,
halls, pavilions, gardens and temples built by Raja Man Singh. Tourists
often ride on the elephant back to the Singh pool and the Jaleb Chowk. Two
flights of stairs rise from on end of the chowk, one leading to the Shila
Mata Temple and other to the palace complex. The image of the patron of
goddess, worshipped by thousands of devotees, was brought from Jessore in
East Bengal (now in Bangladesh) by Raja Man Singh, to be installed here.
Overnight at hotel.
