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

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 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

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

CONUNDRUM OF DUSSEHRA

A smile on his face, tied to the ropes, 10 heads and considered one of the most intelligent man, Ravana is standing in front of me. He is about to die. He is about to be "killed" actually by a man who was exiled, saving his wife and one of the greatest leaders in mythological history who led millions to the other country for this event. For those of you outside the boundaries of India, Dussehra is a festival celebrated in India. Coming back, I am standing with hundreds others. They are celebrating, eating street food and enjoying with their family and friends. It has been like this for the past hundreds of years. It has been like this for the past 23 years of my life. But today, I am alone looking at him and his brothers and wondering a small thing. Why are we celebrating this festival? Every festival has a meaning, a lesson which is moral and some reason to be happy and celebrate. You must be having your own festivals with all these characteristics. But what about Dusse

FUTURE OF MY LANGUAGE

Earlier last year I went to Mumbai for an internship. People in Mumbai are of mixed culture. A heavy number among them is local people who speak local language i.e. Marathi. I also encountered the same situation everyday where I would find many people talking in Marathi in my office. Mumbai being an alive city will preserve its language for a long time to come. But this is not the case for every region. I once had a chat with an old man sitting outside his house and thrashing the wheat. It was a nice morning in the month of July at a hilly area Karnaprayag . He was sitting on the ground and lived just 10 meters away from where I stayed. I used to see him everyday on the same chair while going to office. He was consistent. So was I. It was Sunday and my day off from office when I went outside the guest house into the sun. I used to live alone in that 3 BHK guesthouse and I used to feel alone sometimes. This loneliness lifted my feet in the direction of that man. I went to tha

A DAY BEFORE LONG NIGHTS - FRIENDS AND FAMILY || PART 7

"You don't choose your family, you get it", I had read this quote a long time ago and the first thing I imagined that time was my sister. Fighting with her almost everyday grooved this quote because I thought, I really would not have chosen her. My sister was informed about my condition a day after I was admitted. In the cab when I was going to the hospital, I asked my mother to call and tell her but my father said, don't worry, no need to get her distressed, you will be fine tomorrow . I was not sure. While in the hospital that night, I again asked my mother to call her and tell everything. I knew having her beside me would make me confident. The next day she came from Delhi. She wore purple Jockey top and had a calm look on her face. I don't know what she was thinking looking at her brother whose face was all distorted, but she was calm. She was the best support I could have possibly got with anyone's presence. She would motivate me everyday around thousand

Close To The Sun - Meeting Anurag Kashyap

    " Dude, I won the bet ". " No way! I won the bet ". I was dreaming about the bet I played on the gender of a child of my friend's. I definitely won that bet because I said it would be a boy. I was just arguing when the phone rang. No not in my dream but in reality. It broke my dream. It was my friend Aman Sharma calling on a Friday morning. It was his job day. I picked up the phone. " Hey! Let's go Rishikesh ". " Okay, " I said without inquiring how and why he made up his mind. The next thing he said, " Anurag Kashyap is in Rishikesh today, I guess ". He was talking about the Indian filmmaker  Anurag Kashyap . One of the best directors India has seen who has literally fought and changed the way Indian movies are made and should be made. The true cinema lover was in Rishikesh. So close to where I live. Aman had guessed this by seeing the post of his Assistant Director on Instagram the caption of which said, " Triveni Gha
