Jaipur or Udaipur?

by Jessamy

I am planning to travel from Delhi to either Jaipur or Udaipur - if given the choice and only able to go to one of them, which would you recommend and why?

Thanks for your help

RE: Jaipur or Udaipur?

by oisha

It depends on your priorities. Jaipur is a little more accessible given that you can get there from Delhi in around 4 hours by road. But this also means that it's a little more touristy too. Udaipur is further off the beaten track, so if avoiding tourist buses is important, I would choose Udaipur. Basically EVERY Rajasthani city is worth a visit in my book.

I liked Udaipur a lot better than Jaipur. It's more relaxed than Jaipur which I found very stressing.

Will be going in July (not the best time I know, but only chance before going back to the UK!).

Planning to fly from Bangalore to Delhi, then spend a day in Agra and then go to either Jaipur or Udaipur. Was planning on getting a flight from Delhi, but is it easier to go by car?

Thanks for all your replies to my query.

If you want to live like a Maharaja (King) stay in the Udaipur Palace Hotel on the lake. Ofcourse it is overpriced but..
I prefer Udaipur to Jaipur. You can even take a day trip to some of the forts surrounding Udaipur.

Personally, I'd choose Jaipur, as much more convenient, and offering a lot more to see - the Palace of the Winds, the Observatory, etc etc. If you can afford it, the Rambagh Palace is a great place to stay, but there are cheaper and stylish alternatives. The Lake Palace Hotel in Udaipur is wonderfully romantic, but there's not a lot else to visit, and I've heard that the lake is drying up.

by zeljka_croatia

i'd recommend jaipur definitely...many places to see..a lot more than in udaipur (in udaipur u have 1 lake - dry in summers, lake palace, a big garden...but if u really have to choose ---> jaipur definitely (u'll experience the real rajasthan there)

There's no way you can lose here. Udaipur's got a really charming, romantic vibe... exagerrated by the fact that it's a lot more on the off-the-beaten path than Jaipur is. The Pink City though, is an unforgettable experience... markets, forts, palaces, traditional Rajasthani restaurants... enough for a lifetime of memories. Maybe you should just flip a coin :) Agreed with an earlier comment too, that EVERY city in this beautiful state is worth seeing. Happy travels... Siddharth.

Travel Tips for Jaipur

Jantar Mantar I - Do you have the correct time?

by pchamlis

The Maharajah Jai Singh II was sometimes called "the Newton of the East" because of his intense interest in astronomy and all things celestial. In 1726, he constructed an incredible collection of astronomy-related buildings and facilities in Jaipur, at the time perhaps the most scientifically advanced items of their kind in the world. Even today, the technology assembled at Jantar Mantar is incredible.

OK, back to the "Does anyone really know what time it is?" tune for this tip....

There are two huge sundials constructed at Jantar Mantar. One of them (the largest, naturally) is THE largest sundial in the world. And in this case, bigger is also better.... this is one accurate sundial. Even though it was constructed some 270 years before the advent of atomic clocks, the larger sundial is capable of giving a time reading that is accurate to within 2 seconds. TWO SECONDS.

The sundials are set up as precision instruments, and the read-out scales look to be the fine scientific items that they are.... brass, with numbers and writings carefully etched at just the right points. They reminded me, in many ways, of 18th and 19th century nautical instruments I'd seen in maritime museums.

There ARE correction factors that must be figured into the reading coming from the shadow, usually based on the time of year. Remember, the angle of the sun hitting Jaipur (or anywhere really) will change as the year progresses, depending on the tilt of the earth towards the sun. This affects the sun's position in the sky, and therefore affects the angle of any shadows cast. Of course, it's impossible to pick up and move this giant sundial on a weekly basis to account for orbital variation, Jai Singh's scientists carefully figured appropriate correction factors to be added or subtracted, based on the day of the year.

I looked at my watch and then looked at the big sundial. There was maybe a disagreement of 8 seconds or so. After hearing Alok's presentation on Jantar Mantar, I'm inclined to doubt my watch. :) We were standing near one of the sundials, and I actually heard someone asking someone else, "what time is it"? Seemed kind of comical to me. :)

OK, here are the particulars for visiting Jantar Mantar...

The entry cost is an astoundingly low 10 Rs.
Using your still camera will cost you an additional 50 Rs.
(Note, remember.... you won't be able to take ANY photos inside many of the museums)
Using your video camera will cost you 100 Rs.

Jantar Mantar is located at Tripolaya Bazaar, which is very near the City Palace, within the "Pink City". (central Jaipur)

Ganesh Pol

by grets

Ganesh Pol (Ganesh being the Hindu God with Elephant Head, and Pol meaning gate) this is an imposing gate with the image of Ganesh taking a place of pride on the top. This is the main gate which leads to a courtyard containing the Diwan-i-Am - the Hall of Public Audience.

Elephant ride to Amber Fort

by j-san

It's really quite a long way up to the Fort from the car park and this path is littered with smelly elephant err... mess, so it's definitely worth taking the elephant to the top. You get on from a terrace and sit in/on an iron bar like seating space, covered with blankets and cushions. Then its a swaying 20minute or so? ride to the top.

Palace on Wheels: Debi's Notes Part 2

by Preetibandooni

So she was blabbering out so much in a time that it was practically impossible to describe the train…all of a sudden she sounded as if was reciting her fantasy ride on Santa’s sleigh. The train mainly wanders inside the largest state of the country, Rajasthan. Rajasthan has been long known for its royal elegance and thus the trip includes lots of palace tours, beautiful architecture, lots of culture viewing, folk dance and music shows, classy dining and not to forget a desert camel safari. The train itself has two restaurants named Maharaja (King) and Maharani (Queen).
It was amazing to know that just seven day tour together made her such great friends with the fellow passengers; guess what they still are in touch and are planning a trip to Goa (This time I’ll hop in for sure)…

Amber The Old Capital

by Scarlie

Amber is the old capital of the Jaipur state, situated about 10km north of the city. The fort and the palace within it are superb example of Rajput - and any other really - architecture. We got an elephant ride, which was both scary (I'm afraid of heights) and exilarating.

The most memorable place for me is Jai Mandir (the Hall of Victory) which is based in the glitter of millions pieces of mirrors embedded in the walls & ceilings. This was the private residence of the maharaja, overlooking the enclosed arden and Sukh Niwas (the Hall of pleasures, thus called because of the cold water streaming through the hall and cooling the temperature...among other things).
