The most prominent example of Indian heritage and culture is the Pink City of Jaipur. The grandiose of Jaipur has made it the most popular tourist destination in Rajasthan.
A major part of the fabled Golden Triangle tour of India, Jaipur is famous for its majestic forts and palaces. The Amer Fort, the City Palace and the Jaigarh Fort are three most famous tourist attractions in Jaipur. Some of the other havelis (palaces) have been turned into heritage hotels where you get a personal experience of the royal lifestyle.
You can see the reflection of Indian heritage and the cultural history of Rajasthan in the architecture. Raja Jai Singh II, the former patron of Jaipur, was an astronomy aficionado. In 1724, he commissioned the construction of an astronomical measurement complex – Jantar Mantar – which leaves thousands of visitors bewildered. Among other Jaipur attractions are the wonderful Jal Mahal (palace on water), the world-renowned Hawa Mahal (palace of wind), and the City Palace at the heart of Jaipur.
Good news for shopping enthusiasts! Jaipur presents its opulent culture in its attire and merchandises. The block-print or Bandhej handicraft and embroidery, the bright and colourful Lehariya or tie-and-dye sarees, the charming Meenakari handicraft items, Kundan or Lacquer bangles, Mojris or local shoes, and the world-famous blue pottery are the best souvenirs to take back home.
The Rajasthani cuisine found at every street corner of Jaipur is famous for its range of vegetarian options in the traditional Thali, including Dal Bati Churma, Gatte, Mawa Kachodi, and Ghevar.
