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

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 s

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.

The Untold Story Of A Few Good Men - Kheerganga || Part 1

This blog post is about a few good men I met on the way to the peak of Kheerganga and I will come later on it. Don't presume from the name Kheerganga that I am going to recite you the beauty of the nature that I saw and how white snow embellished the high peak mountains. Well, as I said in my earlier post I would like to share my experience. The natural experience is experienced by everyone. I decided to write this post because of something else to which I will come a little later. This post is about a story which resides in the humble heart of these few men whom I met in Kheerganga. My Kheerganga story perhaps. Kheerganga is a beautiful place which is in the hilly ranges of Himachal Pradesh. I went from my hometown Haridwar to Bhuntar by boarding a normal bus. The driver was old and I thought he might take some extra time to reach the destination i.e. Bhuntar. But no!! I was wrong. The way he drove the bus on the hills is inexpressible. He was driving at a speed on wh

Mumbai Life - Experiencing Living In Mumbai

Mumbai as you know is the financial capital of India with big buildings and sky-touching hotels and apartments. But as I know, Mumbai is really more than that. I arrived by August Kranti Rajdhani from New Delhi to Mumbai transitioning from 0 degrees to almost 25 degrees. I had 2 sweaters in my hand and an internship offer letter in my bag which I had to show in LTI ( previously L&T Infotech).  First of all, I was kind of looted at the railway station by the cab driver. Well, let's not say looted but I was charged like uber after finalising a lesser amount before getting into the cab. On the way, I got to know that so called kaali peeli taxi  and the ola-uber taxi have become arch rivals on this land. Well, still I believe that you should not get into those cabs and prefer ola-uber only. They really try to play smart and think they can earn more from Non-Maharashtrian. From that point on, I have been living in Mumbai and I hoped to share my experience of Mumbai life with you all

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

The Story Of The Butterfly Effect With A Stranger

Have you ever felt that every small decision that you take and every small change that happens around you, that could have happened, either way, can change the outcome of certain events? Have you ever experienced the butterfly effect in real life? I never did until something so coincidental happened to me, it urged me to write a post about it. Last summer I was travelling to Mumbai. I stayed in Zostel (Hostel) in the Andheri area. It had been a long time since I visited Mumbai and met my friends there. Seeing this, my schedule was totally booked. I was in a 6-bed room in the hostel.  I just checked-in, put my stuff in the locker and went out to meet my friends. I returned late in the night around 11 PM or 12 AM maybe. I freshened up and laid on my bed. Like everybody else these days, I turned to my mobile and replied to some messages, scrolled social media a bit for a few minutes and then put the phone aside after my eyes started to hurt. I was tired of all the travel I did that day. I

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 o
