City Palace:

This grand edifice which also includes the Chandra Mahal and Mubarak Mahal palaces and other buildings is a palace complex in Jaipur, built between 1729 and 1732, initially by Sawai Jai Singh the ruler of Amber. He planned and built the outer walls, and later additions were made by successive rulers continuing up to the 20th century. The architects achieved a rare fusion of the Shilpa Shastra of Indian architecture with Rajput, Mughal and European styles of architecture blended into one.

Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds)

This building was created especially for the women folk of the Maharaja clan of those times. From the numerous windows & air inlets of the structure the Maharajah’s wives would spy the daily life of Jaipur hidden by the lattice work screens.

Highly recommended for visit

Amber Fort

Also known as Amer Fort & situated on the outskirts of Jaipur town, it is one of the most famous forts in whole of Rajasthan. It was originally the capital of the state before Jaipur got bestowed with this title.
