Jaipur – Pink City

I had a recent visit to kota, Rajasthan for an official work and one day I visited Jaipur, what a colored city it is? Wherever looked at, the city is pink, pink and pink everywhere!!! and lot of places to visit at jaipur…

I along with my friends, took a taxi from the hotel where we stayed (The hotel itself arranged a taxi) and it is very reasonable and it just costs Rs.225/head for 8 hours. And it is always good to acquire an AC Car or Van, as in summer, you may experience a dry heat over there and of course, we too hired an Air conditioned Car….
The driver is from kerala, so we dont have any problem of communicating in tamil, of course we are good at Hindi. While travelling in the car, we got to know some facts about Jaipur,
  • There was a little number of Government Buses plying around the city.
  • The electricity is very high, so most of the peoples are using Air cooler instead of an Air Conditioner.
  • Any foreigner who is visiting India, will definitely visit Jaipur.
We first visited the City Palace and covered Jantar Mantar, which is almost crowded all the days and it is very nice to see the pinky palace all over….

From there we reached amber fort, just 10kms away from the city and it is also having some three phases of palaces to see. we just completed just two phases and we got so tired of seeing the third phase……

the next place is the museum where you can see anything like monuments, historic event happenings, etc. Just its awesome, they are maintaining that in a very grand manner,

the last place we visited is the birla mandir and as usual it is like any birla mandir across India and its good to be there and from there we went for a shopping at Gandhi Market and spent some 50 minutes, we just roam there to see if we anything cheap… but no…. may be if we would have stayed for one more day, our job would have been done. anyway, its nice to be there at Jaipur and enjoyed really!!! Look at some of the snaps took over there….
