In the morning, our Jaipur day tour will start with a warm greeting with our excellent local guide at the hotel lobby, and he or she will give a short introduction to the trip on our way to the Amber Fort in a cozy vehicle. When we reach the bottom of the hill where the Amber Fort stands, we will get off the car and transfer to another transportation mode to ascend the hill according to your request. Alternative options are walking or taking a jeep, but the latter way should be paid with extra expense on your own before climbing uphill. Once you make a decision, we will continue to the Amber Fort, which looks like a real amber from a distance. The fort was built against mountains and consists of many palaces with a mixture of Islamic architectural style. A moat at the bottom and the high winding walls guard the ancient fort for years.
Later, we will have a photo stop at Jal Mahal, also known as the Water Palace, because the whole building was constructed in the lake center. It once served as the summer resort for royal families in the past. Although the palace is not open to public, we can catch a glimpse of it from the lake side, and the palace seems floating on the water, stunning as a mirage.
Then, we will explore Maharaja City Palace, one of the best preserved historic relics in this nation. The royal city palace was the residential place for the successive nobilities with a blend of Hindu and Islamic architectural features. Open area of the city palace include the Mubarak Mahal, Weapon Museum, Love Hall, Private Hall, Public Hall and Carriage Museum, each of which played different roles. For example, the Sileh Khana now used as the Weapon Museum displaying swords, arrows, helmets, spears… While the Mubarak Mahal once served for royal guests and has been transformed into a textile exhibition hall.
Next is to visit the Jantar Mantar, the best preserved ancient observatory in India. Here, the lush grounds is distributed with bizarre brick structure as well as the world's largest sundial. Most of the astronomical instruments still work exactly at present.
Finally, we will conclude our Jaipur day trip at Hawa Mahal, also known as the Palace of Winds. We will not go inside the palace but only take pictures from the outside. The pink façade was designed to have 953 honeycombed windows, which allows gentle wind blowing through, so it has been given the nick name of Palace of Winds. Actually, the small winds was originally designed to allow imperial concubines to viewing the bustling street at bottom without being seen from the outside.
After our fantastic guided tour, our guide will send you to your hotel and bid farewell. We hope you a nice journey with us and we are glad to customize your next journey.
