The Pink City boasts a splendid evening and night tour. Here is how you should spend your evening in Jaipur as a tourist:
1. Amber Fort
Take in the 50-minute Light and Sound display in Amber Fort, which will transport you to a journey of 600 years and the Kachhawa Dynasty's kings.
2. Nahargarh Fort
The best time to visit is in the evening when you can see the sunset and then hang out to catch the visual delight that is the city skyline and look out over Jaipur from the highest point in town, known as the "Padao."
3. Jal Mahal
The Jal Mahal, also known as the Water Palace, is a sight to behold at night. When the lights twinkling inside the palace are mirrored on the shimmering water, driving along the lake's roadside is a magical experience.
4. Hawa Mahal
Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh built the Hawa Mahal, or "Place of Winds," in 1799. The Palace has 953 jharokhas, or small windows, with elaborate latticework. The Jharokhas were created to encourage royal ladies to attend festivals without being seen on the streets. The Hawa Mahal is closed at night, but The Palace of Winds, with its 953 small windows, provides plenty of chances to photograph the beautiful structure from the outside.
5. Albert Hall Museum
The well-decorated Museum in the city's center, with its shifting colors, has a crown jewel appearance.
The city of Jaipur rises majestically against the backdrop of the forts of Nahargarh, Jaigarh, and Garh Ganesh Temple. The bustling modern city is one of three points on the golden triangle, which also includes Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur.
Between October and March is the perfect time to visit Jaipur, with intermittent showers bathing the city's streets and pleasant weather.
The fastest way to reach Jaipur is via the Indira Gandhi International airport in Delhi with airtime of an hour. Once you reach the Jaipur airport at Sanganer, you could hire a taxi or cab to your desired destination.
Jaipur’s climate ranges from post-monsoon charm, the scorching heat of the sun to cooler and pleasant winters.
Yes, the city is rather safe. However, we suggest you to be careful while meandering along the busy and bustling bazaars of Jaipur.
When in Jaipur, do not miss out on Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Johari Bazaar, and Amber Fort.
Temperatures vary dramatically during the day throughout the peak season (November to March). As a result, layered clothes, a light winter coat, and a shawl are recommended.
The tourists can buy the tie-and-dye fabrics in vibrant colors, block-printing, embroidery, wooden furniture, carpets, blue potteries, and mirror work in Jaipur and nearby villages.
English is widely spoken and understood at almost all tourist centers. But we highly recommend you to take qualified and government-recognized guides during your sightseeing in Rajasthan. They are fluent in many other languages like French, Russian, German, Spanish, etc.
The best-known food which is found in the menu of the families of Rajasthan is the combination of Daal, Baati, and Choorma, along with pickles and buttermilk. Another must-try is Laal Maas for non-vegetarians.
Various means of local transport in Jaipur range from cycle-rickshaws to auto-rickshaws, taxis, and buses. Local buses are usually overcrowded and should be avoided. Auto-rickshaw and taxis are easily available and can be used if necessary. You can ask at information desks at the airport or in hotels to get an idea of the fare.
