Jaipur sightseeing tour
Rajasthan is famous across the world for its forts. Rajasthan is the land of warriors, the Rajput.
Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan, prides on having three prominent forts, rich museum and temples.
Visit of these forts will impart you real feel of regal Rajasthan. A bit early morning breakfast in
Jaipur hotel, you will be taken to excursion of Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort and Nahargarh Fort. The first
stop-over will be Amber Fort. Amber Fort ranks highest in Jaipur tourism. Located about 11 kms away from
Jaipur city, Amber Fort Palace complex sprawls over 4 sq kms of area. Amber Fort contains several prominent
buildings like Sila Devi temple, Diwan-e-Aam or the "Hall of Public Audience", the Diwan-e-Khas or the
"Hall of Private Audience", the Sheesh Mahal (mirror palace) or Jai Mandir, the Sukh Niwas etc. Though the
fine and grand architecture of Amber Fort charms a visitor a lot but an elephant ride from the foothill to
hilltop (the site of main gate) is an incredible real experience of India at Amber Fort, overlooking Maota
Lake and Garden. After visiting Amber Fort, you will be moving to explore Jaigarh Fort, located on Cheel Ka Teela,
a hilltop of Aravali range overlooking Amber Fort. In Jaigarh Fort, still in possession of Jaipur royal family
and maintained by them, you will see a foundry, great water harvesting and storage system, a museum of arms and
ammunitions, and world’s largest canon ‘Jaivan’. Nahargarh Fort, though largely in ramshackle state, offers
best view of Jaipur city and pristine Rajasthani art and architecture. Nahargarh Fort was earlier called as
Sudarshan Garh. Having seen three forts of Jaipur, return to Jaipur city. Have lunch in a nice city restaurant
and move for visiting Albert Hall Museum which showcases a great wealth of historical artefacts. Famous for
housing an Egyptian mummy of Ptolemaic era, Albert Hall Museum offers an opportunity to view a large and rare
collection of textiles, carpets, paintings, metal and wood crafts, pottery, arms and weapons, flora and
fauna of the state, toys, dolls etc. After visiting Albert Hall, proceed to partake into late evening worship
ceremony of Govind Dev Ji Temple. It will be a mesmerizing experience. After visiting famous monuments of Jaipur,
return to Jaipur hotel for overnight stay.
