Don't Miss These Places When You Visit Jaipur || Jaipur Travel

Jaipur is a beautiful state of India with vast geographic variations. From mountains to Forts, you will find a lot of the things to visit in Jaipur. But do you really get the royal feeling of Hindu Kings who ruled this area for years? I went to Jaipur and I am here to share with you my views on the places to visit in this beautiful city.


I have also written a personal experience post of my Jaipur trip which can be accessed here:




Jaipur's Heritage and Forts

The answer to that question is definitely yes. Jaipur will give you a feel of royal heritage with its long list of forts. Jaipur will make you create the scenarios when King's would rule this place.

Jaipur has a lot of forts and honestly, I find forts very much the same at other places But Jaipur's forts are really very well constructed and very well designed. They are huge in area and all at a decent height. I think Jaipur is really worth visiting the place if you are in India.




I guess you will or are planning a trip to Jaipur. So, first thing first, how to reach Jaipur? 

How To Reach Jaipur?

Jaipur is very close to the capital of India and is very well connected with every mode of travel. It is therefore very easy to reach Jaipur from anywhere in the country.

How To Reach Jaipur Via Flight

Jaipur can be reached via Flight from Indira Gandhi Internation Airport, Delhi to Jaipur International Airport


How To Reach Jaipur Via Train

Jaipur can be reached via train from New Delhi Railway Station (NDLS) to Jaipur Junction and there are a lot of trains available.


How To Reach Jaipur Via Road

Jaipur can be travelled by road through buses or cab or personal cars. I travelled in my personal car and it was a great experience. Delhi-Jaipur highway is considered one of the best highways in the country and it is really an experience travelling over it. 
It takes around 5 hours to reach Jaipur if you do not make any stops in between.



Places To Visit In Jaipur

There are a lot of places to visit or a tourist attraction in Jaipur. I will share with you the most interesting and popular places that you can visit.

Nahargarh Fort

The Nahargarh Fort is a beautiful fort located on the top of the hill. If you are visiting Jaipur, Nahargarh Fort is a must. Try to visit Nahargarh before the sunset. The fort has all the arrangements for food and dining. The view from Nahargarh fort is extraordinary which makes it a popular tourist attraction if you are in Jaipur. There are no entry fees to visit the Nahargarh Fort.




Chowki Dhani

There is no doubt that if you want to experience the real culture and food of Rajasthan, Chowki Dhani is the best place. Chowki Dhani is located around 20 KM from Jaipur and is a must to visit. The place provides dancing experience, games, food and much more.
Chowki Dhani entry price starts from INR 750. But the amazing thing is that all the activities except the games are inclusive in the Chowki Dhani entry ticket. 




Amer Fort or Amer Ka Kila

Amer fort or Amer ka Kila is yet another fort in Jaipur which is spectacular in its architecture and view. Amer fort is considered the best fort in terms of its design and the area it is spawned in. It is open to all and you can around the fort freely. 
The entry price for Amer Fort is Rupees 100 for Indians and 10 for Indian Students.




Jal Mahal
Jal Mahal palace is although not opened for the people to visit inside, it is yet a treat to watch something built in between the water. Jal Mahal is beautiful at night and it would be really better if you visit it in the evening time. Jal Mahal timings are 24 hours since it is not open for public you can visit the fencing area anytime you like. 


Johri Bazar

Johri Bazar is the central market of Jaipur which is really good. Johri Bazar gets so many tourist footfalls that it has become a tourist place only. Johri Bazar has all types of shops in it. If you want to shop something really "Rajasthani" whether it be clothes, food or souvenirs, it has got it all.


Hawa Mahal

Hawa Mahal is also a palace which is located very close to the Johri Bazar and the Bapu Bazar. Hawa Mahal is named as "Hawa Mahal" meaning "Wind Palace" because the palace has a lot and lot of windows through which wind flows. Hawa Mahal is located on the main road and the timings are till sunset. Although I did not find Hawa Mahal as amusing as I had heard about it, maybe you would love it.  A local person in Jaipur told me that Hawa Mahal has so many windows because the ladies residing in the palace used to look outside through these windows only. The windows of Hawa Mahal are built in a way that the person outside cannot look inside.


I think that is it to Jaipur's heritage. Although there are many other places to visit in Jaipur but, honestly, they are not that worth if you are a frequent traveller.

A few of these places include:

City Palace
Hawa Mahal
Masala Chowk
Albert Hall

All in all, Jaipur is a great place and if you are planning a trip to Jaipur, this will help you a lot. And if you are having any doubts whether you should plan this trip to Jaipur or not, believe me, you will miss a lot.

A DAY BEFORE LONG NIGHTS - THE LANDING || PART 10

As I mentioned earlier, I was seeing double from the first day till now. My eyes did not improve even a little for many days. Everything I used to see was double. Two doors, two mobile phones, two coffee cups everything. The doctor said my pupils are not moving synchronously as they should and hence you are seeing two images of everything. The images are seen separately by both the eyes but our brain combines it as one, while in your case it is still two images. But, you will be fine with time. With time. This is a very vague sentence. There is no specific maximum limit nor there is any medicine. You will see normally with time. Hence, I waited for "the time".

Two days after I came home after being discharged, I picked up my father's phone, opened chrome browser and typed, GB Syndrome patients case studies. I wanted to know how much time? How everyone else have managed and how much time they took. I needed to know. I needed to be prepared at least. I read three case stu…

THE UNTOLD STORY OF A FEW GOOD MEN - KHEERGANGA || Part 2

I climbed to the peak with a dog whose both eyes had different colours. A disease maybe. The scenic beauty of Kheerganga trek is something you cannot miss and would crave for later in your life. It was a hard trek, especially for someone who does not trek regularly. The path was natural, unpaved and quite narrow. At some places, there was no path at all due to the landslide happened just a night before. It was tiresome to climb such a trek for 14 kilometres but I had a companion that I told about in The Untold Story Of A Few Good Men. I reached the top of Kheerganga trek at around 5 in the evening. It was very cold at the peak. Nearly about 12-15 degrees. But thankfully there was a hot spring bath at the top. A hot spring bath is all you need after such a growing latitude. I booked a tent and quickly went for the bath. It was the best. The natural hot water flowing continuously and in the centre of the highest peaks you can see them capped with snow. I spent nearly an hour there. It …

Signs We Ignored - Part 2

In the midst of heavy rain, we decided to go ahead with the plan. I took my phone and the power bank with me. Raman took his phone. As we stormed down from the stairs, the rain started getting worse. "Are you sure it's a good idea?", I asked him with rain dominating over my voice. "Just a matter of minutes and we will be inside the car", a confident Raman said. "Alright then, let's go ahead with the plan".

READ SIGNS WE IGNORED PART 1

I sat in the back and Raman drove the scooty. There was water everywhere. I was soaked in water in just a few minutes. I tried to hide behind Raman as much as I could, but the weather was so damn bad, I could not escape. I was wondering how my friend was fighting with those thorny little drops. It was around 1.6 km in distance including all the U-Turns and service lane cuts. Finally, we reached our destination.




"We have a booking for Tata Bolt," I said in a slightly louder tone to the Drivezy agent. "

A Journey Towards The Pink City - Jaipur

"Beep! Beep! Beep!", I woke up to my alarm sound. It's 8:30 in the morning. Normally I do not wake up this early. But, today I need to travel to Jaipur. I have booked a car for my journey and I need to pick it up at 9 am. This is not a restricted time boundations booking. I can go and pick it up anytime after 9. I checked my mobile phone and see the location of the car has been shared with me. Great! I walk outside my flat in New Delhi at around 9:30. The destination is just 15 minutes away. Cool!



I took an auto to reach the destination as it was cheaper and faster. It is a really beautiful sunny day. The roads are as usual filled with cars in the capital. 12 minutes to the destination and I open my Zoomcar app once again. The location and the car details are gone now. They don't even show any upcoming bookings on the app. Could be a glitch, I thought and looked outside. People are rushing towards their offices this Friday. 4 more minutes to reach the destination. I…

THE MOST UNUSUAL SOLO TRIP - REACHING GANGTOK || PART 3

"Can it be fixed?" were my words as I was so doubtful about the final result. He said, "yes, yes, look what I will do, I will take this rope and tie this to this spring and remove the mudguard by hammering it. Although tyres will not be straight as the spring is broken but since there is no mudguard, what will they touch to? And the spring which was hanging, I will tie it.". This was his solution. I smiled at him and he smiled back, I knew he would do it but I was not sure about the final destination whether it will be Gangtok or some village where this car will finally breakdown.

I rushed towards the two boys who were smoking a cigarette under a shed of a house about 10-15 meters away. The visibility was just 5-8 meters by then. I could just see the main road and the people sitting outside their house where I was standing. Another boy who was sitting beside me in the cab also asked the same question to the driver and he gave him the same answer. While I was sure …

A Better Path To Satisfaction

On a Sunday morning, a very famous Indian actor Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide in his flat in Bandra, Mumbai. Although there was no suicide note, a lot of theories have emerged regarding his attempt to end his life. I am tired of a new theory coming every day and reading them does not bring us to any conclusion. But the main essence of every theory is, "Sushan Singh Rajpur was lonely and under depression."



Depression, a word that has taken a toll on a number of patients in the last decades. Except for the pockets of psychiatrists and hospital fund, depression is harmful. Loneliness and depression are often constituted together because of the relationship as the more lonely you are, the more you think and the more you get frustrated. During our evolution as human beings, we discovered that one man is easy prey, but 10 men are predators. This evolutionary process made us what we are today i.e. social animals. We are so social that the hardest punishment of all in prison…

The Divided States Of India

As I landed in the city of Bangalore, a man is shouting just outside the airport. He is shouting something that I do not understand. Fortunately, he has learned 4 5 English words. After all, he is standing outside the airport. “Where,” he asks. “Marathahalli” I spoke. “Bus 8”. He says one word and starts shouting again. He was a bus driver. But most importantly, a resident of Karnataka state in India. Yes, this place is in my country and we both cannot communicate.




Many years back when I was in the eighth standard, my textbooks proudly and boldly highlighted the words, “India is a diverse country”. They would show the culture and folk dances of each state. Unique on its own. A moment to feel proud. You can never find a country as diverse as India, as culturally rich as India. That was just the textbook. My practical started almost 2 months ago.
Soon when I reached my hotel I realized nobody in the hotel knows Hindi. Yes, Hindi. A language spoken in India. A language which is not only…

A Different Side To India China Skirmish || India-China Faceoff

The India China relationship is the current topper in all the news channel and for about three months now. But before jumping right off to the current India China relationship let's start at the beginning of where India China skirmish began. On December 2019, a new virus was identified into existence by WHO. A virus that the WHO was not sure about but tracing the infected people back to their travel history, each one of them had visited China. Not only China and anywhere but at a specific city called Wuhan which is quite big in size as well as population. The virus was found zoonotic and there are thousands of zoonotic viruses that do not spread to humans. The virus originating in Wuhan was inspected under the microscope and had similar properties to the SARS virus which erupted in 2003 all around the world. This virus had a crown-like structure on its boundaries and hence was named CORONA which literally means crown in Latin. With its behaviour resembling the SARS virus, it was a…

A Day Before Long Nights - The Start || Part 1

I took my empty bag, I took my jacket, dressed in college uniform I started my ride. I was going to my college to give my final semester presentation for the project I had done in LTI, Mumbai. I was happy about the fact that after today, there will be no exams, no attendance and my college life would be over. I had my days planned. Since I had been on the flight from Mumbai to Delhi to come home, I had planned all my days. I wanted to learn driving at a driving school. I wanted to learn swimming. I wanted to go to the gym. I wanted to go on at least three trips in one month. I had all planned but I guess life had other plans for me.


      I gave my presentation to a four-judge panel out of which three were ladies. They were chit-chatting and I don't remember any of them listening to me after I told them the company and brief of the project. My presentation was over as soon as they told me "Thank You". It was a moment of epiphany. My college was over with that sentence. I …

2020 - A New Beginning

I am listening to a song. A very old song indeed. I don't know how but I got an urge to listen to it. A playlist instead. But, another voice is dominating this over my song. The voice of firecrackers. Oh! the new year has arrived and so has the wishes of so many people. So many people have forwarded there wishes to all their contacts which included me. But, I have not responded to most of them.



What kind of new year are we celebrating? It's like celebrating independence on the cost of millions of lives and broken homes. I read the newspaper today and the first page is showing the same news as it has been for the past days. CAB protests at Lal Quila. CAA protests at Jama Masjid and many more protests at various other places. A new year but no new news. It is not a new knowledge that this country has been divided at the smallest levels till the top-most and the categories are so many. I am from a different cast of a different religion of a different state of a different gender.…
