Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan and the gateway of most tourists visiting this Indian state. Modern and grand city in the historic center of Jaipur and popular as “Pink City”, colorful bazaars abound with spices, saris, sandals and leather objects, jewelery, gemstones and trinkets that make the delights of the visitors more consumerists. Losing oneself in the bazaars is part of any trip to Jaipur but the city has much more to offer such as the City Palace, the Mahal Dinner (astronomical observatory) or the Water Palace a few miles from the center.
At 11 km from Jaipur lies Amber with its imposing and masterful fort. This fortress palace was the seat of the capital of Rajasthan until the eighteenth century until it passed to Jaipur but Amber never lost connections with the nobility of Rajasthan. In addition to the magnificent fortress palace, full of ornate doors, temples and halls, there is more to see in Amber such as the fort of the city and its beautiful gardens in the Kesar Kyari Bagh.
One of the most charming cities in Rajasthan, Jaisalmer is the gateway to discover and explore the Thar Desert. The fortified old town is full of palaces, havelis, temples and small bazaars – Once an important interposition on the Opium Caravan Route of Silk and Spices, Jaisalmer survived looters, sovereigns and political upheavals. Surrounded by desert, the Jaisalmer fort is one of the most beautiful in Rajasthan but there is more to see such as the Manik Chow Market, Badal Vilas Palace, Gadisagar Lake, and some beautiful havelis scattered throughout the city.
4. Desert Of Thar
One of the best experiences you can have in Rajasthan is exploring the Thar Desert. A desert, camel or jeep tour is easy to organize from either Jaisalmer or Bikaner. The idea is to spend a night in the desert, enjoying the starry night and the kindness of the population that lives there in small villages.
The magnificent Mehrangarh fort dominates the city of Jodhpur – the Blue City and one of the most beautiful in Rajasthan. The Mehrangarh Fort has plenty of reasons to take you for almost a day’s sightseeing but the city has much more to offer than the fervent bazaars, especially the Sadar Bazaar, Jaswant Thada Marble Memorial, Umaid Bhavan Palace, now a hotel and where you can spend the night. It is a beautiful city to discover the streets and life of Rajasthan.
Chittorgarh is a walled city with a strong historical presence in every corner and nook of its fort. Imposing, the fortress is overlooking the city, dominating in the distance the surrounding plateau. Inside the fortress of Chittorgarh, there are Jain and Hindu temples, ruined palaces, water reservoirs and beautifully carved towers.
