A THRIFT-STORE JUNKIE'S PARADISE

by Siddha3th about HAWA MAHAL BAZAAR

Over a long stretch running past the Hawa Mahal, on both sides of the road, lies Hawa Mahal Bazaar. Like with all the marketplaces in Jaipur, the colours on display here will just overwhelm you. Red, saffron, green - with some of the crazy shopkeepers even more colourfully dressed than the stuff they're selling! Handbags - beautiful, unique, handmade bags - embellished with jewels and strips of different fabric.

Ghagra-cholis - these are the sexy ethnic womens garments that Rajasthan is famous for. The choli is a low-cut blouse, almost like an ethnic bikini top, which is tied to a woman's back by a single string. Man, it's just heaven ;)

Planned City

by Willettsworld

There's me thinking that Chandigarh in Punjab was India's only planned city when all along, Jaipur was indeed a planned city itself. This well-planned city was designed by a young Bengali engineer and scholar named Vidyadhar Chakravarty. Jai Singh II wanted a new capital to be built south of Amber and named it Jaipur ("City of Victory"). Work began in 1727 and took just six years to complete. Jaipur was planned in a grid system with wide straight avenues, roads, streets and lanes and uniform rows of shops on either side of the main roads, all arranged in nine rectangular city sectors (chokdis), representing the ancient Hindu map of the universe. The city was surrounded by a crenellated masonry wall, measuring 20 feet in height and 9 feet thick with seven imposing gateways - Dhruvapol (Zorawar Singh Gate) on the north, Gangapol and Surajpol on the east, Rampol (Ghat Gate), Shivpol (Sanganeri Gate) and Kishanpol (Ajmeri Gate) on the south, and Chandpol on the west. The walls were built for protection from invading armies and wild animals that lurked just outside in the jungles that surrounded the city.

Hawa Mahal

by schlumpf

The Hawa Mahal, a.k.a. palace of wind, is a very great building and the most wellknown symbol of Jaipur.
The Palace has been build on 1799 from Maraja Sawai Pratap Singh in the tipical Rajput architecture style, and has been build in the middle of the old city.
Once you cross the street you will have a compete view of the building and you will be in the middle of the touristic market. Better go on the right side direction the flower market.
Once you cross the street to take a picture of the whole palace, there will be a lot of people offering you to bring you on the upper level of their houses, where the view of the palace is simply great. Take care, cuz they are also seller, so they will ty to sell you something immediately after you took a pic.
The Palace of wind is open daily from 09am to 4.30pm and the entry fee is Rs2 plus 30Rs for the camera.
The entry is on the backside of the building.
Another time where to see great view of the palace is during the evening. Altough the palace won’t be opened, you can take a rickshaw and get here...definitely great views!

Amber Fort

by mallyak

Amber is located at a distance of 11 kilometers from Jaipur and was the old fort of the Kachhwaha clan of Amber, which used to be the capital, till it was moved to Jaipur
The fort is built with white marble and red sandstone and look even more attractive because of the Maota Lake in the foreground. The fort in itself is a beautiful sight to behold but as one looks on the fort with its clear reflection on the lake in the front, one cannot help but wonder if it is a dream or a beautiful illusion.

Amber Fort also called the Amer Fort is a must-see if you are visiting Rajasthan. The tourists to this fort can either approach the fort by road or take an elephant ride, which though is quite slow yet is a lot of fun.
