Delhi to Jaipur?

by Semdesign

We are a group of 15 people travelling to Delhi and then on to Jaipur next January. We will attend an exhibition so will not travel around anywhere else. I am trying to find the best way to get to Jaipur from Delhi - flight costs are quite expensive for a big group of people. Would it be a good idea to hire a minibus with driver to drive from Delhi to Jaipur - stay there 13 days and then drive back to Delhi??

I am also looking for good quality low priced accommodation in Jaipur?

Jaipur is about 260 kms from Delhi. It would make a lot of sense to hire a minibus, especially if you travelling in a group and carrying a lot of luggage. Delhi-Jaipur by road/train would take about 5 hours.

Another option is to travel by bus. Rajasthan State Transport runs regular deluxe buses from Delhi-Jaipur. The fares start from Rs. 250 one way. The buses leave from a very convenient location (Bikaner House near India Gate). Check the site www.rsrtc.gov.in for details.

There is an AC train (Ajmer Shatabadi) that leaves Delhi at 6:00 am and reaches Jaipur around 11:00 am. The fare on this would be around Rs. 450.

Acoomodation in Jaipur should not be a problem. There are a lot of decent/affordable private and Rajasthan Tourism run hotels.

Hi
Yes , you can hire a minibus from Delhi to take you to Jaipur but I would recommend you shop around for prices in Delhi. You have various options :
1. you can hire a minibus from Delhi which stays with you through out your stay in Jaipur and the brings you back to Delhi at the end. This will be slightly expensive as you will have to pay for the driver's costs per night while he is away from Delhi.
2. you can hire a minibus from Delhi just to drop you in Jaipur and make independent transport arrangements in Jaipur. This way the minibus operator will charge you for coming back from Jaipur to Delhi as well , as they have to incurr petrol costs to return to Delhi.
3. you travel to Jaipur by train or bus. See information given above . Though the train is superfast and great service with food/mineral water etc. it does run early in the morning and you may need to buy tickets in advance. The buses which starts from Bikaner House
at India Gate are reasonable / on time / have good drivers. They run nearly every hour through out the day and if you want a bit more luxury ,they have a few air conditioned ones every 2-3 hours. I recommend these even if weather does not require air conditioning.
4. re hotels ....as Radz suggests you really cannot beat Arya Niwas . Please have a look at their web site .
They also have facilities at different locations for self catering etc. I recommend you get in touch with them and see if they will negotiate a discount . But please note their prices ar every decent and so is their service.
Hope the above is of help.

Travel Tips for Jaipur

Amber Palace IV - "A" (not "The") Great Wall

by pchamlis

There is a series of fort structures in and around the city of Jaipur, including the gigantic Jaigarh Fort overlooking the Amber Palace. Many of these forts, as well as former military posts in the surrounding countryside, were once joined together by a series of wall fortifications. On first look, these walls actually have a similar "look" to China's Great Wall. The walls in the Jaipur area were most certainly built with the assistance of descendants of those who built the Chinese treasure, but are much more "human" in scale. Whereas the Great Wall of China basically covers a continent, or parts of it, these walls are more of a local military item from the 16th and 17th century.

OK, it's not "the" Great Wall, but they're pretty cool anyway. It goes to show you how seriously the maharajahs and emperors of the past took the threat of outside invasion. Seeing our guide (Alok Choudhary) smile when I said that the walls looked "a little bit like the Great Wall of China".

Sukh Niwas

by grets

Sukh Niwas - the Hall of Pleasure - has a channle running through it, which once carried cooling water where the ladies of the palace used to cool off their feet. There is also a beautiful door made of sandalwood, inlaid with ivory.

Jaigarh Fort "Showcases World's largest cannon"

by 10753435

Jaigarh Fort is located on the top of the hill, by the name of Cheel ka Teela (Hill of Eagles). Jaigarh Fort is also known as the 'Victory Fort', located at a comfortable distance of 15kms from Jaipur. Jaigarh Fort is considered as one of the spectacular forts in India. This Fort is on top of the hill, while Amber Fort is at the bottom. Many people regard the two as one complex however both of them are well connected with well guarded passages. Jaigarh Fort positioned centrally in the thorn-scrub hill, leaves a stern impact on the spectator at once.

Jaigarh Fort was made to tighten the security of Jaipur and Amber. Due to this fact, one may not find this fort as artistic as other forts and palaces, but it certainly has its own charm. The Fort has many structures of medieval India, which are worth exploring. It has several palaces, granary, well-planned cannon foundry, several temples and a tall tower. Jaigarh Fort used to serve as the center of artillery production for the Rajputs.

The highlight of this Fort is the massive cannon by the name of Jaivan, which was made in the same production house. Jaivan, the cannon, is believed to be the largest cannon in the World and the main attraction of the Jaigarh Fort. The Fort discloses the mastery over architecture of the former age. Jaigarh Fort has many wide water channels, which were a part of a rainwater harvesting system. The Fort also has 3 underground tanks, the largest one of which can store 60, 00,000 gallons of water. One can plan to visit the armory and museum, which are worth seeing.

The museum has a remarkable collection of coins, puppets, photographs of the royal kings, buildings, processions and even a circular pack of cards besides many other remnants of the past. The armory has numerous swords, shields, guns, muskets and even a 50 kg cannon ball, which would take you back to the gallantry days of the Kings. One can also see a few weather beaten sedan chairs and drums at the Shubhat Niwas or the Meeting Hall of Warriors. Above all, the Fort offers a wonderful view of the city below. Jaigarh Fort is a perfect destination for a traveler, interested in the majestic past of India.

Amber Palace Complex

by RAJASTHANBYCAR

Situated just over 10 kilometres away from Jaipur on the Jaipur-Delhi highway is Amber, which was the ancient capital of Jaipur State. A bus leaves from Hawa Mahal every 30 minutes and a well-laid out road takes the visitor out of the city and very soon one witnesses lush green hills. The complex of palaces, halls, pavilions, gardens and temples was built by Raja Man Singh, the Rajput commander of Akbar’s Army, Mirza Raja Jai Singh and Sawai Jai Singh, over a period of about two centuries.
The Amber Fort set in picturesque and rugged hills is a fascinating blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. Constructed by Raja Man Singh I in 1589 and completed by Sawai Jai Singh I 1650 the fort is made in red sand stone and white marble. The rugged forbidding exterior belies an inner paradise with a beautiful fusion of art and architecture. Amber is the classic and romantic fort- palace with a magnificent aura. The interior wall of the palace depicts expressive painting scenes with carvings, precious stones and mirror settings. In the foreground is the Maota Lake providing a breathtaking look. Built mainly for the warring enemies as a safe place, the heavily structured walls could defend the residents within the ramparts of the fort.
All the means of survival & luxuries for the royal families and the people who were concerned with the functioning of this small kingdom of the Kachhawas were well provided. The Rajputs who had apparently won a small structure passed on by Meena tribes, later on renovated it into the grand Amber Fort. Holding a history so old as 7 centuries, this place vibrates with its legendry past, in the archaeological history. Although many of the early structures have been literally ruined but at the same time, those dating from the 16th century on are remarkably preserved by sincere efforts.
