Having relished tasty and healthy breakfast in Jaipur hotel, drive for full day sightseeing of Jaipur. Jaipur is pleasantly touristic and intrinsically
charming. The Jaipur sightseeing tour will commence with visiting Amber Fort Palace complex. Seven miles from Jaipur, at the mouth of a deep gorge, is Amber,
which for six centuries was the capital of this region of Rajasthan. Little remains of it now but the great palace, which was begun by Man Singh in 1600.
The upper part of the palace, said to have been designed by Jai Singh I, who is more usually known by his title of Mirza Raja, constituted the princely
living quarters; they are of fairy-tale-beauty, with fabulous inlaid and sculptured decoration. On the roof of the palace is a kind of belvedere from
which there is a fine view of the lovely mountain lake below and of the great defensive wall built in the tenth century against infiltration from the
desert. The visit of Amber Fort becomes more fascinating due to a maharaja like ride on a caparisoned elephant from foothill to the main gate of Amber
Fort at the hill top.
The chief sight of Jaipur is the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds), so called because its windows are screened with stone filigree through which cooling breezes
might pass. Five stories high, of pink sandstone, it stands roughly in the centre of the old city. Fanciful and delicate, imaginatively playful, it looks
not unlike the kind of palace one might have expected to hear about. It is not only the chief sight of Jaipur, it is one of the great sights of India.
The interior, as one might expect, is extremely complex, with narrow wandering corridors and steep spiral stairways.
Other famous monuments of Jaipur included City Palace, Jantar Mantar and Birla Temple. After visiting major tourist sites of Jaipur, explore
bustling market of Jaipur. Jaipur is famous for its jewellery, handicraft articles, carpets, durries, marble products etc. Later in the evening,
return to Jaipur hotel for overnight stay.
