i am having trouble finding a train from jaipur to varanasi. does anyone know if there is a direct train? the train # and times.

i tried using the indian government railway site, punching in jaipur to varanasi, but they say they do not have any matches. i even tried jaipur to agra, and agra to varanasi and no luck.

sos,

I don't think there is a direct train from jaipur to Varanasi. From Agra, try the Marudhar Express (#4854/4864) it's a 13-hour overnight express train. And I think there is also one called Maruta Express (#4853/4863) from Varanasi to Rajasthan....

Travel Tips for Jaipur

Amber Palace I - A general overview

by pchamlis

The Amber Fort and Palace (sometimes denoted as the AMER Fort and Palace) dominate a large crest overlooking Maota Lake, at the edge of Jaipur. The fort was first begun in the late 16th century by Raja Man Singh. Over the next 100 or so years, the fortifications and palace were completed. For a period of time, the fort was considered the capital of the Kachhawah Rajputs region. Eventually, the capital was moved to the city of Jaipur itself and the fort was abandoned.

Today, the fort, which dominates the highest part of the crests, is basically ruined. However, the palace and its grounds are an incredible look into the Rajasthan of some 300 years ago. The design and architecture of the palace are a combination of Rajput and Moghul style and influence - basically the product of a century-long building process.

I will have several following tips to discuss various areas and aspects of the Amber Palace. I will close this tip with the basic visit(ing) information for the Palace:

Location: Delhi Road, north of Jaipur
Admission is 50 Rs. Still camera charge is 75 Rs and a video camera charge is 150 Rs.
The Amber Palace is open daily from 9:00 until 16:30.

Diwan-I-Khas

by grets

The Diwan-I-Khas, or Hall of Private Audiences, is better known as Sheesh Mahal - The Hall of Mirrors. The Hall was built by Mirza Raja in year 1600.

As soon as Mirza had completed the Diwan-i-Khas the emperor Jahangir got to hear about this magnificent building, which he, in his jealousy, feared was more impressive than the Pink City itself with exquisite detail on the carved pillars. The emperor ordered that the Diwan-I-Khas should be demolished, and sent commissioners to Amber to fulfill his demand. Mirza, in order to save the structure, had the columns plastered over with stucco, so that the messengers from Agra should only find a plain palace and believe that the magnificence, which had been so much talked of, was after all pure invention. By knocking off some of the plaster one can get a glimpse of the sculptures, which are said to be as perfect as on the day they were carved.

Roadside Fish Curry

by l_joo about Roadside Fish Curry

20Rs only to eat at the roadside of Jaipur. This is dinner, I meant this this the best dinner in India so far. The location is at the roadside of Sindi Camp Bus Station. Many bus drivers come to eat here, they drink liquor while enjoying the fish. I ate the fish with curry and 5 pieces of chapati with rice, all for 20Rs only, the best.

Cenotaphs of Royal Gaitor

by Donna_in_India

You can reach the Cenotaphs of Royal Gaitor using the Zorawar or Samrat gates at the northern wall. (A cenotaph is a tomb or a monument erected in honour of a person whose remains are elsewhere.) The cenotaphs are made of marble or sandstone. What is particularly interesting about the cenotaphs is that each has a different design and is styled according to the power and majesty of a particular king during his lifetime.

This was a beautiful, peaceful place that contained the cenotaphs of the maharajas of Jaipur from Jai Singh II (founder of Jaipur) to Man Singh II (last maharaja of Jaipur).

Open daily from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Admission is free, but you may be required to pay a small camera fee.

TAKE A WALK!

by Siddha3th

Everything happens at the same time - people, rickshaws, thoughts, feelings come flooding at you from all quarters... and it's an enthralling experience! To take it all in, just bring yourself down to where the drama's at its maddest - the marketplace.

All the major street markets are close to each other, either running parallel or just a few streets away. It's great to experience all the sensations head-on, especially during the bitingly cold winter.

I met a whole motley crew of characters within half an hour - vendors, kite-flying specialists, tourists, and most unforgettably, a couple of kids who just wouldn't leave unless i took their photograph first :)
