Travel Tips for Jaipur

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY

by BerniShand

All of the places we saw were wonderful photo opportunities, here at the Amber Fort is a holy man who is happy for you to take his picture for a fee [ about 20 rupees ]

it is best to ask before you take photographs of people, a small tip is usually required

Puppets

by yumiyun

In Jaipur, you can find puppetry shows accompanied by live music. The same puppets are on sale in many places. Normally, the puppets come in a pair of man and woman puppets dressed up in traditional attires. The pair of puppets approximately Rs. 100-150.

Cultural Treat

by hb_capri

Choki Dhani is a must do if u r travelling to Jaipur.You can either stay in the resort itself or go there for a couple of hours in the evening.It was just a 40 mins drive in taxi from the city.its open every evening from 6 to 11 to public.The entrance fee is Rs 250 per head (can go up a lil during the tourist season oct-dec).You will require a min of 2 hours to take in everything.They have a variety of shows,rides n food stalls.You also get an awesome complimentary vegetarian meal.All the shows are included in the cover charges but the rides n snacks r not....but these are very cheap ranging from Rs 5 to Rs 15.

We really got to experience the Rajasthani way of living n their culture n food in those two hours

The ancient capital castle

by Robert_Hun

11 km north of Jaipur's center, situated on a hilltop.
Visitors can ride up on elephant back entering to the central garden through a gateway.
The walls and the ceiling of the world renowned Sheesh Mahal (Hall of Mirrors) are covered with a beautiful array of mirrors which reflect any streak of light illuminating the entire room.
You can have great panorama on the surrounding valley, lake and hills.

Beautiful Palace

by Donna_in_India

The City Palace was built by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh and is a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. It is surrounded by spacious courtyards, gardens, and temples.

There are several buildings in the complex including a very interesting arms & weapons museum located in the Maharani's Palace (which was once the queen's apartments). The Maharaja Sawai Mansingh II Museum has a fabulous collection of royal costumes, block printed materials, pashminas, embroderies, and fine silks.

The Diwan-i-Khas is the Hall of Private Audience done in marble. In the gallery are two huge silver vessels filled with holy Ganges water. The vessels hold 9000L, stand 160cm tall and are the largest sterling silver objects in the world.

The art gallery is housed in the former Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience). A few highlights there included a beautiful painted ceiling with semi-precious stone colours, a huge crystal chandelier, and a copy of the entire Bhagavad Gita handwritten in tiny script (as well as miniature copies of other holy Hindu scriptures).

With all of the exquisite things to see in the City Palace it is hard to pick a favorite, although I loved the archways and doors, and the Peacock Gate.

The City Palace is another must see in Jaipur. Allow at least a couple of hours depending on how much time you spend in the museums.

Open daily 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Admission Rs 35 Indian citizen, Rs 150 Foreigners
