What to See in Jaipur


Jaipur, known as The Pink City, is India at it's best; the first mapped city in India, oozing opulence, grandeur and magnificent architecture. With so much to take in, here is what you must see in Jaipur.


Jaipur's City Palace is one of the prime attractions in Jaipur. It is still home to the royal family of Jaipur, and magnificently represents the impressive blend of Rajput and Mughal architecture. The palace is a vast complex with many courtyards, private rooms, gates and gardens. There are two ticket options - one for the exterior grounds and the other which grants you access to private rooms. Although much pricier, I recommend the latter with a private tour guide who will be very informative on the history of all aspects of the palace. You will feel completely immersed into a bygone era filled with richness and royalty, seeing the intricate work up close in the rooms, and getting a glimpse into how the royals lived.   ​
