Travel Tips for Jaipur

Nevrotic queue!

by schlumpf

If you would need to caugh a bus, a train or a flight, then you will have the problem of the queue.
In India, as well as in a lot of places in Asia, there is no respect for queue
The rule is: the first one speak is the first that has to be listened!
Altough you are waiting for your turn, you will detect that hundreds of people will jump on your shoulder trying to overtake you...it will take away your hair..something really bad! Be patient, that’s the only thing to do!

'spend spend spend'

by PCuk

This is an amazing city to "buy".There are such opportunities to buy whatever you want here..look out for the amazing shoe shops (sandals,boots,ali-baba shoes with turned up ends) fabric shops (vast arays of colourful cloths) bangles (down the Ka Rasta ) jewellery (a Jaipur speciality) terracotta (look out for the special blue earthenware) as well as leather,paintings,kites and the obligatory carpets and pashmeena's

The Mighty Amber Fort

by Rupanworld

The Amber Fort at Amber, 11 kilometers away from Jaipur and within its municipal locality, was a palace that was built during the rule of Raja Man Singh, the Commander in Chief of Akbar’s army (and his brother in law) and the construction began in 1592. The fort was modified for one and a half century next until the capital of the kings was moved to Jaipur. The fort is situated on top of a small hill which people can walk up or in a more touristy way, may also take an elephant and ride on its back upto the palace. The Fort is a beautiful treasurehouse, quite well preserved. It is made of marble and sandstone. The interiors are beautiful, well decorated with exquisite mirror work and sculpture at some places. The idea behind the mirrorwork originally was that when at night somebody passed by the rooms with a single candle on hand, the thousand reflection on the mirrors would lit up the whole room.

City Palace Continued

by Waxbag

The Mubarak Mahal (Welcome Palace) is the first large structure built in a large courtyard used as a reception center for visiting dignitaries. It now houses an impressive collection of textiles including; royal costumes, polo outfits, Sanganeri block prints, shawls, rugs, and embroideries. The most remarkable part of this exhibit is the gigantic set of royal clothes for the 2m tall, 1.2m wide, and 250Kg Sawai Madho Singh, the Maharaja from 1750-1768. It seems each city has been ruled by a large Maharaja at some point or another. At the Maharani?s Palace there is a remarkable arms collection, the best in Rajasthan. The oldest display in the collection is an array of interesting yet gruesome 15th century weapons including Rajput scissor-action daggers that once trusted into the body open up like scissors so when pulled out the victim is disemboweled. Swords and tiger daggers with small pistols attached also caught my interest. The large Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience) has a notable collection of howdahs, palanquins, miniature paintings, and massive hanging rugs. This hall also displays Persian and Sanskrit scrolls with miniscule print on 2 inch wide paper that could be rolled up to fit in the palm of your hand. Hindu scripts were written this way to be easily hidden in case Aurangzeb tried to destroy sacred texts. The famous Peacock Gate is in a courtyard outside the Chandra Mahal, where the royal family still lives.

Not to be missed

by Preetibandooni

One of the landmarks of the Pink City- Jaipur is known by the name, City Palace. The palace complex built in between 1729 and 1732 was the seat of the Maharaja of Jaipur and thus was constructed in most opulent of the forms. The palace complex is a repository of royal culture; here one can explore an impeccable synthesis of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. The entire palace complex is designed in a regal pattern with series of voluminous courtyards, spectacular gardens and splendid edifices creating an exceptional abode for the rulers of Kachawa clan (the ruling clan of Jaipur). The fascinating features of City Palace include the stunning edifice of Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) and Zenana Mahal (Women’s Chambers).
