1. The exquisite historical sites

There are so many historical and architectural sites that make this city a wonder. Some of the sites that you must see include:

  • The Hawa Mahal Palace of the Winds: this building is beautiful to look at, and the architectural designs will make you gaze with amazement. It is a beauty to behold. The many small windows and screens were for the women to use to stare down on the streets without anyone seeing them.
  • The Amber Fort and palace: this fort is one of the attraction sites in Jaipur. The garden is exquisite and perfect for walks and getting some rest after touring around Jaipur.
  • The monkey temple: this is a place that will fascinate you. This Hindu temple has excellent natural springs of water and also pools. Monkeys took over one of the pools, and that is where they swim and take their bath.

2. The various festivals

Indians have numerous festivals that are marked with color, music, and dance. At Jaipur, the festivals that are held include:

There are so many restaurants that serve the best Indian cuisines for you to enjoy. All these places serve a wide range of meals, and there is something for everyone.

  • One of the best places I recommend for you to try is the Chokhi Dhani. This place makes you experience the Rajasthan culture in 3D.
  • You can also try the Spice Court. If you cannot handle the extra spice on your food, then the place is not for you.
  • The Shri Thaal Village Restaurant is a perfect replacement for Chokhi Dhani. You will enjoy every meal here.
