Travel Tips for Jaipur

Building Under Construction

by atufft

Needless to say, labor is cheap in India, and so a bucket brigade to hoist cement or stucco to build or repair a building is not uncommon. In this image notice the bamboo scaffolding and the women who come in support of the workers.

The Palace of the Winds - Hawa Mahal, Jaipur

by chizz

The Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds was built upon the orders of poet-king Sawai Pratap Singh in the 18th century and is the most impressive monument in "The Pink City" of Jaipur. It was built as a vantage point so that the women of the palace could watch the royal processions passing through the bazaar behind stone carved mesh like screens.
Open 9am-4.30pm. Closed on Fridays. Was closed for renovation when we were there in July, 2008.
Good photos are best taken across the street where the crafts shops are.

Ride the Elephant up to the Fort

by tremendopunto

There is a great possibility to take a ride with an elephant up the hill to Amber Fort. It is great fun! They charge about 500 Rs though, but hey, do you know how much an elephant eats and drinks per kilometer?!? :-)

Iswari Minar Swarga Sal

by MalenaN

You can climb Iswari Minar Swarga Sal to get a great view over Jaipur and the old town. The entrance to the minaret is from a small street behind Chandpol Bazaar, near Tripolia Gate. The man selling tickets asked for Rs 20, but I pointed out that it only said Rs 10 on the ticket (August 2010). That was the price so that was what I was paying. He didn’t have change to a 50-rupee bill but would get that while I was climbing the minaret. He told me to put the ticket in my bag while visiting the minaret and I think he wanted me to forget about my change when I came back down. I didn’t forget, but the man had “forgotten” and had to be reminded.
There is a spiral passway with no steps leading up to the top of the minaret. Along the way are several pigeons and lots of pigeon poo.

The minaret, which is also called Heaven Piercing Minaret, was built by Iswari, the son of Jai Singh. Iswari committed suicide when Maratha troops where advancing, and at his funeral his 21 wives and concubines committed jauhar, a traditional ritual where the wives died on their husbands pyre.

Iswari Minar Swarga Sal is open between 9.00 - 16.30.
