You are bound for the Pink city today. Upon arrival you check in your hotel. After some rest, you leave for an excursion of the city. We have compiled a list of the worth seeing spots in Jaipur which you can explore during your two days stay here. These are listed below:-

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.

Jantar Mantar
A collection of astronomical observation instruments and calculations of the of the ancient India masters of Jyotishis is what this World Heritage site has to offer. Built by the Rajput King Sawai Jai Singh, this observatory consists of fourteen major geometric devices for measuring time, predicting eclipses, tracking stars’ location as the earth orbits around the sun, ascertaining the declinations of planets, and determining the celestial altitudes and related ephemerides. 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. Constructed in the 16th century by the then Raja Jai Singh in red sandstone and marble, it is an imposing structure atop the hillock overlooking Jaipur & adjoining areas. You can ride an elephant up the path to the main compound. You can also see the ‘Shila Devi’ Temple and the ‘Ganesh Pol’ inside the premises that is thronged by hundreds of visitors each day. Do not miss the great durbar Hall & other pavilions. Watch the sunset over Jaipur from the Sun Temple here.

Other places of interest are Albert Museum (Named after Price Albert Edward, this massive structure in stone is a fitting tribute to the indefatigable Indian Artisan & his workmanship).

Jal Mahal ( This water palace is a part of the Man Sagar Lake & a complete makeover of the ancient place done by Maharaja Jai Singh of Jaipur in the 18th century. You can see this lake surrounded by two hills on the sides which are itself a part of the great Aravalis)

Heritage Walk (Recommended)
This tour is very different & full of unexpected sights and surprises. You shall pamper your senses with Unforgettable images of men & women, young & old engaged animatedly in their daily work in the lanes & by lanes of this city. Though quite a modern city yet Jaipur has not lost its old charm and is a stunning example of India’s rich cultural & historical legacy. At one end of this walk you shall see metal making experts work with their traditional tools & on the other you get to see the Sarvajanik Kuan or The Public well, the spot where ladies used to gather in ancient times over some chit chat while drawing water from the well. From tie & dye textile facilities to Earthen ware, from ancient Johri bazaar (goldsmiths market) to spicy street food, you savor this all during this heritage walk.

DAY 05 & 06 - JAIPUR – FATEHPUR SIKRI - AGRA (240 KMS, 4-5 hrs)

You drive from Jaipur to Agra today. En-route you visit Fateh Pur Sikri, the ghost city.

FATEH PUR SIKRI
Mughal Emperor’s Akbar’s capital for over 2 decades before water scarcity & Rajputana neighborhood frustrated him to go back to Agra. Legend has it that Akbar built this place in honor of Saint Salim Chisti who had prophesied that the Emperor would one day bear a son that he had longed for. He was sure blessed.

You can after entering from the Buland Darwaza (54 mts entry gate to the Ghost city) see the Saints tomb; Diwan e- Khas (Private audience assembly hall) Jama Mosque & a couple of more structures on your visit.

You see Taj very early in the morning. Recommend seeing it by the
Sunrise time even before you have had your breakfast. Return back to your hotel. Have breakfast. Rest a while before embarking on a tour of the city visiting other attractions like Agra fort, Itmad ud Daula.

TAJ MAHAL
It is the most alluring sights on the banks of river Yamuna. Standing still & frozen in marbles of history. It makes tourists to marvel & gasp. Built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan, the Taj is a white marble memorial dedicated to the love & devotion of his beautiful wife Mumtaz Mahal. This monument took 22 years to complete and was designed, and planned by Persian architect Ustad Isa. Apart from its stunning design balance and perfect symmetry, the Taj is also noted particularly for its elegant domes, intricately carved screens and some of the best inlay work ever seen. A place to rekindle lost love between partners;
